Primary School(Key Stage 1 & 2)
The Primary Curriculum at Dubai Heights Academy is delivered through the National Curriculum for England. This encompasses our core subjects at the heart of our curriculum; Literacy, Maths, and Science. We further enrich our curriculum with Geography, History, Design Technology, Art, PSHE, Computing, UAE Social Studies, Moral Education, and International learning from Years 1 – 6. Across all phases of the school, we strive to teach our subjects in an integrated way so that to provide a high standard of teaching and learning which is enjoyable, purposeful, and memorable for all children.
Our goal is to foster a life-long love of learning, through adopting a highly practical and cross-curricular approach. The curriculum aims to deliver a twenty-first-century education that equips our children with the skills required to be independent and responsible citizens.
We strive to stimulate the curiosity in all our students, encourage them to search for relevant information and ideas, and challenge them to use or apply what they discover in new contexts or in new ways. The primary school teachers at Dubai Heights Academy look for opportunities to involve students directly in decisions relating to their own learning. This encourages them to see the relevance of what they are doing and to take greater ownership of their own learning.
Being a British international school in Dubai, we have students from all over the world and our curriculum enables the children to have a deeper understanding and appreciation of living in the UAE. Our Arabic language, UAE Social Studies, and Moral Education programs explore these concepts and also give children the opportunities to celebrate living in this wonderful, dynamic country.
