Ramadan Guidance

Guidance for Schools & Colleges

Waltham Forest is very proud of its diverse population, and it is in this spirit that this guidance has been produced. It is neither statutory nor a rigid set of prescriptions, and we fully recognise the fact that in almost every instance the final decision remains in the hands of individual headteachers. Rather our aim is to suggest compromise positions and encourage dialogue between schools and their local Muslim community, at the same time as ensuring the best possible education for all of Waltham Forest's pupils.
