Rashid School for Boys serves the local Emirati community. At Rashid Primary, we ensure high quality teaching and exceptional levels of individual care. The RSB team works together to inspire and support our boys; offering them the support and opportunity to thrive and achieve their full potential in a safe and stimulating environment.
We recognise the importance and actively promote an effective partnership with parents. Our home school relationship is based on mutual trust and respect.Together we work on developing the positive values, attitudes and skills that our boys will need as they travel through RSB then beyond. Good behaviour, hard work and a positive ethos are the key to our success. We are proud of the students and staff at RSB. We are also very proud of the progress that we continue to make in developing independent, self confident, respectful young men.
At Rashid School for Boys, we welcome and cater for students of determination. Places are offered on our guiding principle that we are able to meet the learning needs of all individual pupils. All students have access to high quality education, provision, resources and curricular options. There is no doubt that RSB Primary is a happy and dynamic place where children always come first. As Co-Heads we are committed to leading the exciting and challenging educational journey ahead.
Primary provides an education for students from 3.5 to 11.5 years. All our students have English as a second language and are taught a modified version of the UK National Curriculum, with a strong emphasis on a multi-sensory, cross-curricular learning throughout the school.
Our students are enrolled at three and a half to four and a half years old and enter the Foundation Stage where they take part in a 2-year programme following the UK Early Years Foundation Curriculum. The students are taught 6 areas of learning. These are:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
The Arabic curriculum is also an integral part of the education provided at RSB. There are two main areas of study taught by fully qualified first language Arabic teachers. The students learn Arabic language and literacy and are taught about Islam and Islamic values, including their cultural identity as citizens of the UAE.
In 2020-2021 it has been so difficult to run our co-curricular programme, but, we did manage to host our final sports day ever!
Fit for Life
Primary 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. 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 Ensemble 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
