Dear GA families
Gloucester Academy is delighted to serve a proud and diverse community. As such we wish all of our Muslim families Ramadhan Mubarak. We will be speaking to all of the children in assembly this week about Ramadhan and the theology behind it.
We continue to expect 100% every day, with no shortcuts, from every child. This includes any children who are fasting. We also continue to expect full participation in PE, however our staff will be mindful of where children may not be able to exert as much physical effort. The welfare of all of the children will continue to be of the utmost importance. We recognise that all of our families continue to appreciate the high expectations that we hold the children to.
The school would like to extend their support to all the children who are carrying out religious observances, including the children who are entitled to free school meals. If your child is fasting, and is entitled to free school meals, please email firstname.lastname@example.org including their full name (forename and surname), year group, and any dietary requirements. This means we can ensure that students are able to collect a sandwich at lunchtime that they can take home and eat at iftar.
Many thanks for your support.
