At Kings’ School Dubai, we follow the National Curriculum for England as a framework, which we adapt to ensure a conceptual, integrated and enriched learning experience for our young learners. It is important that we contextualise the curriculum so that children understand what they are learning and why, by using the environment around them. Children love learning about things they love, so allowing them ownership over their learning, where appropriate, is critical to their success.
Children are given many opportunities in a range of environments in order to grow and develop. This includes academic, sport (both competitive and non-competitive), performance and creative arts, as well as personal development and discovery activities like residential experiences outside the classroom. It is our role as educators to ensure such opportunities exist that will engage and challenge our children.
We believe that everyone in school should be a role model to others, right from the youngest members of our community. Respect for each other, our learning, our community and our environment is essential. We also believe that children should be happy in school and enjoy learning. Attainment and progress are of course critical in a child’s education and we know that happy children succeed.
At Kings’, we have a very strong culture of reflection and we acknowledge achievements and celebrate success in all aspects of learning. We then carefully plan our next development steps that will ensure greater success in the future.
