SUCCESSFUL PRIMARY SCHOOL
HEAD OF PRIMARY WELCOME
I would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to you all and express how I am looking forward to working with you and your children at DBS Rawdat Al Hamama, where together we will celebrate your child’s achievements and their love of learning. At DBS Rawdat Al Hamama there is an atmosphere of high expectations founded on our core belief that ‘every child can, needs and wants to learn’.
We provide a high-quality education for all within a brand new school, built to facilitate the highest standards of teaching and learning with state of the art facilities. We believe in an inclusive approach that inspires a happy and positive mindset in children’s approach to learning. Pupils are provided with the opportunity to thrive in a nurturing, yet challenging environment, through high quality learning experiences. We have high aspirations for all of our children and through a broad and balanced British curriculum, we aim to ensure that each and every child fulfils their potential.
Our key learning characteristics of being resilient, self confident, inquisitive, motivated, respectful, honest and community spirited are woven throughout our curriculum. We are a school committed to celebrating our community, where children and their families are at the heart of all we do.
Our website will be updated frequently over the forthcoming months in preparation for our opening in August 2021. I look forward to meeting with you and welcoming you to our school then.

Early Years Foundation Stage
(Preschool and Reception)
Children in Preschool and Reception learn through fun, practical activities. We create a warm and friendly environment allowing our children to play, learn and discover the world around them. We believe in allowing each child to develop at their own rate, providing an engaging learning environment with a mix of adult led and child initiated activities.
that shape the curriculum:
We offer Arabic lessons to native Arabic speakers and teach Spanish as a second language to all other children. These sessions are led by specialist language teachers who use play, songs and practical activities.
For children who are learning English as a second language we will also offer small group language support.
We have daily phonics sessions where we use a multi-sensory approach following the Letters and Sounds programme.
Key Stage One
(Years 1 and 2)
Key Stage 1 includes Years 1 and 2. In Year 1 we build upon the Early Years Foundation Stage and continue to develop the early skills of reading, writing and mathematics through a process of continuous provision. Our aim is to develop in every child an inquisitive mind and a passion for learning. Our enthusiastic teachers and engaging lessons prepare children for a rapidly changing world, encouraging them to learn by being open-minded and taking risks.
Key Stage Two
(Years 3, 4, 5 and 6)
In Key Stage 2 there are four Year Groups: 3, 4, 5 and 6. In Key Stage 2 we build on the excellent foundations established in Key Stage 1, so that by the end of this phase learners are ready to take on the challenges of learning within the secondary school. Children advance significantly academically, socially, morally and culturally and develop greater independence and self-confidence to prepare them to become global citizens in the rapidly changing world.
