Absence due to religious observance of Eid-ul-Adha - Information for all parents

Dear Parents/ Carers,


Next week, many of our families will be celebrating Eid-ul-Adha. We know that Eid-ul-Adha is one of the most important festivals in the Muslim calendar. As such, in line with all other Birmingham schools, we are able to authorise one day of absence from school next week for those children who are Muslim.


Families will know by now on which day they will be celebrating Eid-ul-Adha, either Wednesday 28th June or Thursday 29th July 2023. School will be open as normal on these days and, as we have a large number of staff who are also celebrating Eid-ul-Adha on either one of those days, it would be helpful if parents could let us know on which day their children will be absent so that we can ensure we have adequate staffing.


Please could parents complete the online form to indicate on which day their child/ children will be absent from school (parents of non-Muslim children do not need to complete the form).


The link to the form is here:


Please note: We can only authorise ONE day of absence due to Religious Observance to children that are Muslim. Any further absence will be unauthorised unless it is for another authorised reason. Children that are not Muslim should attend on both days as normal.


Many thanks,


Mr Beale
