OUR APPROACH

Beaconhouse Private School Al Ain utilized best practice to implement the UK curriculum from EYFS to Year 6 in our first year of operation (2019-2020). After an incredibly successful first year, we are moving into our second year of operation – we expanding out to Year 7. 21st century skills are fostered in our students by providing them with an environment in which they can inquire about their learning and derive meaning from it. Our school is fully inclusive, supporting learners with a wide variety of educational needs to develop themselves as best as possible. Our learning lines are deliberate and continuous aligning to the scopes and sequences as set out in the curriculum. The sustainable development goals 2030 are integrated into every aspect of our curriculum, helping our students to understand their role at the school, in the community, and the greater world. Students are charged with developing their strengths and ideas to maximize their learning opportunities. We aim to develop leaders who are capable of taking risks, being reflective, and can communicate about their learning.

Our curriculum and inquiry-based approach is designed to equip students with the right skills and mindset to meet the challenges of the 21st Century and our team of committed teachers and support staff empower students and prepare them to lead happy and fulfilled lives in the context of a rapidly changing world.

The school is a member of the multinational Beaconhouse Group, which has almost 309,000 students in eight countries worldwide and is possibly the largest school network of its kind in the world.

INCLUSION

At Beaconhouse Private School Al Ain, all learners are fully included in our classes at all grade levels. It is our fundamental belief that all children have the right to an education and have the right to learn. Our aim is to support all students to the best of our ability. This goal requires that we work closely with families to ensure the learning needs of their children are met.

We have a Special Education Teacher on staff who is fully qualified and trained in appropriate methods to meet all types of learning needs. The SEN Teacher works with homeroom teachers to ensure appropriate and meaningful learning goals are set for students. On occasion, a student may need a shadow teacher to access the curriculum more effectively. This may occur based on discussion with the SEN Teacher, Class Teacher and Principal.

Individual Education Plans are implemented for students with learning needs that fall outside of the mandate of the core curriculum including accommodations or modifications to assist students in achieving their individual learning goals. IEPs are reviewed a minimum of thrice times yearly and are discussed with parents to ensure a shared focus for their child’s development.

If you have questions about our inclusive approach to education, please contact our Parent Relations Executive or SEN Teacher to schedule a meeting.
