Inclusion in Primary

Inclusion at Rashid School for Boys

Rashid School for Boys is committed to providing a first class education to all students, including students identified as experiencing special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).   All students have access to quality instruction, intervention and support so that they experience success in learning.

Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum spoke of the need for inclusion in Dubai schools and for his aspiration for Dubai to be a fully inclusive city by 2020. He said, “The goals are clear, the road is paved and the clock ticks: there is no place for hesitation. There are many who talk, we accomplish”

At Rashid School for Boys we cater for children with a range of additional needs.  Places are offered on our guiding principle that we are able to meet a pupil's learning needs to enable them to achieve their full potential. We follow the Dubai Inclusive Education Framework. The framework provides valuable information about the required standards of educational practice as well as clear guidance for the provision for pupils with SEND.

At Rashid School we strive to promote the principles of inclusion through our daily practice and also through special events and visits to special educational centres. We have celebrated World Down Syndrome Day and Autism Awareness Month. The Ensenble choir which is made up from pupils with SEND came to do a performance for us at school. We have an annual SEND Awareness Week where we learn about different disabilities which can affect people. A highlight of the school calendar is the annual Friendship Games, where pupils from 3 special schools in Dubai come for a fun, entertaining day and compete in games with the Year 6 pupils. We have many boards and displays in the school which celebrate inclusion, all under the banner -

“All Different, All Equal”
