Our students and staff from the Muslim faith will be observing the month of Ramadan (a period of fasting) this year over the period 23 April – 23 May 2020. The exact dates (which could vary one day either side) depend on the moon sightings based on the lunar calendar. This guidance aims to raise staff awareness of this important event for our students, staff and visitors and its impact on workplace and student education activities. This year the observance of Ramadan and Eid celebrations will be impacted by Government restrictions in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The restrictions are going to impact on who is able to take part in daily fasting, working/studying from home arrangements and participation in communal prayers and meals.
