Before GPS offers a place to a child, we aim to ensure that the child will be able to access the curriculum within our inclusive support provision. However, there may be some cases where an individual has learning needs that are so great, they cannot be met with our inclusive provision and we would recommend specialist facilities should be sought instead with the best interests of the child being of paramount importance. At all times, we are guided by the Dubai Inclusive Education Policy Framework (2017) and the Directives and Guidelines for Inclusive Education (2019).
We aim to create a warm, nurturing and stimulating environment, where all children are challenged and are encouraged to meet and exceed expectations. We are looking for children who will engage and participate in the learning opportunities we provide and have the ability, motivation and parental support to enable the child to thrive and make good progress in their own personal learning journey.
All admissions are subject to an initial assessment in the school setting and potentially an informal interview. Our Principal and Admissions team may ask to meet with parents, prior to, or following assessment, to learn more about a child’s potential, previous education, experiences and ability.
