The welfare and happiness of every student is central to our school. Successful learning is about each and every student engaging with that process, free from personal worry and in a safe and secure environment.
All staff at The Arcadia School understand the importance of actively supporting every student's academic, pastoral, social and healthy well-being.
A comprehensive health and safety policy will ensure that students, staff and parents are safe and secure in the school at all times. The School Management Board (SMB) ensures that school staff and premises comply with all Dubai Civil Defence/Municipality regulations.
Our health and safety policy identifies the key issues associated with health and safety in school. All staff have specific responsibilities in support of ensuring that they carry out their duties safely, without risking themselves, the student or visitors.
This policy has four main elements to safeguard students' welfare:
Direct support for students at risk
Promotion of a school-wide protective ethos
Appropriate training of all relevant staff on a regular basis
Open communication with outside agencies responsible for student welfare
The school follows all government requirements to ensure that The Arcadia School is in line with UAE standards.
