Aldar Academies acknowledges the right of all children to access a broad and balanced curriculum in a manner which promotes academic progress, school connectedness, emotional wellbeing and resilience. We are proud of our inclusivity and provision for students with special educational needs, and are of the belief that diversity in our school enhances outcomes for all students. Our commitment to inclusivity ensures that all students, including those with disorders, disabilities, gifts or talents have equitable opportunities to a high quality education, within safe, challenging, creative, stimulating and personalised learning environments.
 
At Aldar Academies we welcome people of determination, recognising their strengths and valuing their contribution to our school and wider community. These students, their families and teachers are supported by our Inclusion Teams. Each school has a Head of Inclusion who is an experienced and highly qualified special educator, supported by a team of skilled teachers, many with specialist qualifications. Students benefit from the support of  Assistants who ensure that students with additional needs access high quality interventions and support to access the curriculum. Some students with higher needs require an Inclusion Assistant to promote independence and ensure their physical or communication needs are met. Levels of support are decided in consultation with specialists working with the child, the Inclusion Team, and parents.

Students with gifts and talents are identified and closely monitored to ensure their progress and attainment is maximised, within the context of a challenging and enriching curriculum and extra-curricular activities. Students with additional learning needs may require support to address specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia or dyspraxia, cognitive, physical or language impairments or communication delays.
 
Our students achieve well and our programme of support maximises inclusion in mainstream classes, with additional staff to facilitate personalised programmes of learning. We take a holistic view and maintain high expectations of social, emotional, behavioral and academic progress for our people of determination.
 
We value close partnerships with parents and have developed referral paths to leading specialist providers in Abu Dhabi. During the admission process we meet with the family, review any specialist guidance you may provide and work with you to fully understand your child’s needs, and identify what support or intervention is required to ensure their success and maintain their wellbeing. We are guided by ADEK  Policy and work closely with our Education Council to deliver high quality provision that meets rigorous international standards
