The dates of Ramadan change each year, and so does the date of Eid-al-Fitr, the celebration at its end.
To check this year’s dates, access our interactive online calendar or check on this site. However, due to the date being determined by the moon's visibility, it's difficult to work out in advance the exact date, so dates between sources vary from 10 to 11 March 2024.
Open the conversation with pupils
Find out who's fasting
Make sure you know which pupils may need support during Ramadan. Ask parents/carers or pupils to speak to the school about it, so you don't make assumptions about who may be observing the fast.
You may want to ask for parental permission to allow younger pupils to miss lunch.
