School Absence for Religious Observance

Received: 17 December 2019

Dear Barnet Borough Council,

Could you please advise on your recommendations for the schools in relation to the religious observances days? Can the Russian Orthodox Christmas dates, 6 and 7 January, be requested as authorized absence days for religious observance? Those are important dates for the Orthodox community similar to the 24 and 25 December in the UK. They are also listed on the Holidays and Observances in the United Kingdom list:

Your feedback would be hugely appreciated.
