When children begin Primary, they commence the British National Curriculum for Year 1. This is a broad and balanced curriculum which is enhanced by UAE compulsory subjects of Arabic, Islamic Education, (for Muslim students), UAE Social Studies and Moral Education. Our holistic approach means that much of our curriculum is taught linked to a theme, with discrete subject lessons where appropriate. This helps provide useful and enjoyable contexts for learning, allowing children to make connections across different areas of study.
To ensure this broad education in the primary years, subjects covered develop academic, aesthetic and personal attributes. These include the four UAE compulsory subjects plus English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Art, Computing, Music and PE. Specialist teachers deliver Arabic, Islamic Education, Computing, Music and PE. Arabic language and Islamic Education are taught in Primary from Year 1 to Year 6; UAE Social Studies and Moral Education (MEP) are taught from Year 2 to Year 6.
