New technology tools are used throughout the school, with projectors and smart screens in all classrooms. The school coordinates, curates and checks online resources so that technology use is both commonplace and safe.

Students learn to use editing tools, design tools and robotics.

Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

Newlands School is an inclusive school that caters for the diverse population of Dubai. At Newlands School, we assess children on an individual basis and identify their specific needs.

Learning support offered

Our qualified, special education staff conduct assessments at the admission stage, in cases where the parents identify potential learning difficulties, and after teacher referrals, where students’ difficulties have emerged through normal classwork. The school cooperate fully with KHDA to implement UAE and Dubai policy on special needs access and support, once a child has been granted a place at the school.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

The school support students, once admitted, with a range of special needs across the spectrum covered by KHDA categories: behavioural, social and emotional; communication and interaction; sensory and physical; medical conditions or health-related disability; learning difficulties; gifted and talented, and disabled. This involves addressing gaps in the basic skills of literacy and numeracy, early difficulties caused by adopting English as an additional language, mild dyslexia and dyspraxia, certain forms of autism, mobility difficulties and manageable difficulties in hearing and sight.

School start time

The school starts at 7:30 am.

School finish time

The school timings for FS 1 & FS 2 are from 7:30 am – 1:30 pm and from Year 1 to Year 9 are 7:30 am – 2:30 pm.

Extracurricular activities or clubs offered

Children at Newlands School have a wide a variety of extra-curricular activities to choose from. In keeping with our philosophy, students are expected to challenge themselves in a variety of ways. The school offers a number of after school clubs and societies – some of which are run by students, either for students of their own age, or for those in the younger years – but each with a teacher in charge providing support and guidance to ensure a high quality of delivery. Many of these after school clubs are academic in nature while others have a less academic focus.

Teaching approach of the school

We believe in strong engagement with children, with parents and with communities.

We get to know every child and every family. We develop with you an understanding of your child’s strengths, using innovative research tools. We work to remove hindrances and blockages to learning. We follow-up if things don’t work out right the first time.
We employ staff for their subject knowledge as well as for their teaching ability.

We encourage a healthy spirit of competition to help students to ‘go for it’ and ‘be the best’. We firmly believe that children should have the opportunity to be creative, innovative and enterprising. We think of ourselves as facilitators so that they become imaginative, flexible, problem-solving, responsible and resilient.
