Project Description

Jumeira Baccalaureate School

“As an International School in Dubai we wanted to understand if our work around Character Education was in line with best practice. The Kitemark award gave us a rubric to work toward and the verification process helped us see what we were doing well but also areas we need to develop. We are proud to be the first International School outside the UK to gain the award but more importantly we now have a strong set of guidelines to work toward and the target of achieving Kitemark Plus in the future.”

“Assessors found strong leadership at Jumeira Baccalaureate School, which is committed to the development and delivery of the school’s character education programme. This commitment is coupled with a strong focus on wellbeing for both staff and pupils, an approach grounded in positive education. Recruitment practices are moulded and shaped by the culture and ethos of the school, ensuring staff exemplify the character virtues that the school wishes to develop in its pupils. The school has a strong approach to parent engagement which has helped define the school’s values, in a way that will ensure they are developed beyond the school gates.”
