Primary School Program
Years 1 to 6, Key Stage 1 and 2

Dear Primary School Parents,

I feel very privileged to be a part of the Dubai Scholars family especially as we are preparing for our 40th year of providing quality education in Dubai.Our school has a unique and very distinct ethos. It is a diverse, vibrant learning community where expectations and standards are high.

Our children make huge progress in terms of learning, creativity and their understanding of themselves and others. We are very proud of what they achieve and we are persistent in our efforts to ensure that our students are academically, socially and emotionally prepared for the future. The characteristics of a Dubai Scholars learner embody the 21st century learning skills, which are essential in today’s world.

We aim to make the time spent by our students in the Primary school an enriching experience and endeavour to provide them with treasured memories that they will look back on in years to come. I take pleasure in working with children in an international, multicultural environment where every member of staff works as a part of a team to make each day an enjoyable learning journey for them. Enjoyment, challenge and activity are at the heart of successful learning and we strive to achieve this through a broad and balanced curriculum which allows children to reach their potential. We want our children to be the very best they can be!

Key Stage 1 and 2

The Primary School at Dubai Schools is a curriculum designed to enhance imaginative, diverse and creative learning for children within the robust academic environment we are known for.

Outstanding teaching and learning opportunities are grounded in our delivery of the National Curriculum of England and Wales, an international British curriculum.

Lessons focusing student’s personal learning targets are identified throughout the curriculum; assessment is both formative and summative allowing teachers to educate the entirety of a student’s wide range of talents, curiosity and proclivities.

Throughout all phases of a student’s education within the Primary School we value academic rigour combined with opportunities to enable children to achieve their full potential in a wide range of creative and expressive subjects.
