The Mission of SISD is to provide an inspiring, inclusive and challenging learning environment while celebrating academic excellence. We welcome students of determination and give them access to appropriate provision, resources and curricular options. “At its heart, inclusive education is a provision that is committed to educating all students, including students identified as experiencing special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in a common learning environment. In such settings, all students have access to quality instruction, intervention and support, so that they experience success in learning. Inclusive education providers create a culture of collaboration, in a landscape of mutual respect and equality for all. All students are given opportunities to be successful learners, to form positive social relationships with peers, and to become fully participating members of the learning community.” (Dubai Inclusive Education Policy Framework, 2017) In line with this principle, SISD encourages and supports all students, including those identified as having additional needs and/or talented and gifted to become successful, global minded, enthusiastic lifelong learners who will confidently take advantage of future opportunities and help make a difference. We fully support the inclusive aims of the Government of Dubai’s ‘My Community… A City for Everyone’ and the focus on education which is part of a wider vision for Dubai to become a fully inclusive city by 2020.
