In line with the Dubai Inclusion Education Policy Framework (2017), the staff at Repton Dubai are committed to providing an inclusive education to all students. We strive to ensure that pupils with a learning difference have a positive learning experience and are supported in their learning.

We strive to ensure that our teaching meets the needs of all our students and is appropriately differentiated to allow access and challenge for all. The school has the required support systems available to meet students’ needs both at the admissions level and the classroom level. To this end we work collaboratively with management, teachers, pastoral and medical teams, parents and pupils in supporting learning diversity. We have a shared objective to collaborate with parents to ensuring that that pupils and parents are at the centre of our support.
