Muslim families across the UK may celebrate Eid on different days this year to mark the end of the month of Ramadhan. It is likely that families will celebrate on Wednesday 6th and Thursday 7th July, but some may celebrate on Tuesday 5th July 2016.
The exact date for Eid will not be announced officially until the night before, once a siting of the new moon has occurred. Please see
attached guidance for more information about closure days and authorised absence.
