Dear Parents & Student,

A very warm welcome to SISD and to the upcoming 2019/2020 academic year! We very much look forward to seeing you on our first day of school.
Please find below some helpful information for the start of the new academic year. We look forward to meeting your family, answering your questions, and helping you through the transition to SISD.

Parent Portal Access
Please ensure you have logged in before the start of the school year.


Security Badges
To ensure a safe environment for our school community all parents, students and others authorized to collect students are required to have an official SISD photo identification card.
We recommend you complete and submit the Security Badge form well before the start of the new school year to ensure that your SISD ID cards are ready for collection before the first day of school to avoid long queues. Please follow the Guidelines here.

NOTE: For parents with older siblings already at SISD, please re-submit the Security Badge Form as we will issue new parent badges mentioning all children at SISD.

Transfer Certificate
To register your child with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), we will need a Transfer Certificate before the start of the school year:

  • Dubai : all students joining us from another school ( excluding nurseries)
  • Rest of the world: for students entering Grade 2 and above

Please follow the Guidelines and use the Transfer Certificate Sample.

After-School Activities
Our students are encouraged to attend SISD’s After School Activities (ASAs) as these provide them with the opportunity to be active, learn new skills and have fun. The ASA Parents Handbook will be sent to all parents by the end of August. It will include the final ASA schedules, important dates and deadlines for registration, rules and regulations, a guide to use the online registration system, and contact details. Registration for ASAs will only take place after the start of the school year.

School Teams
Tryouts for our school teams will only take place after the start of the school year.
