The DBS primary curriculum is an enhanced and challenging version of the National Curriculum for England and Wales, with the latest National Curriculum strategies for teaching Numeracy and Literacy at its heart.
Learning is organised into Key Stages, with individual progress monitored in a number of ways including Standard Attainment Tests (SATs) from the UK. Expectations are very high and children have every opportunity to progress as individuals. Average class size is 25 or less.
The curriculum is significantly enriched to reflect the culture of the UAE. Our science and humanities units are structured according to the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) which places a particular emphasis on international mindedness which is particularly relevant for our students. French is taught by specialists from Year 1.
