Integrated Learning

Integrated Learning Groups (ILG)

There are 4 classes in ILG across the different levels of the school. The students range in age from 4 years starting in ILG 1 and ending at 18 years in ILG4. Since motor difficulties are a challenge for all the students in this Department, incorporating therapy into their daily lives in school and at home is a key element in the program.

This involves special furniture for seating, use of adapted equipment and resources for mobility, communication and educational purposes.

The Curriculum followed is based on the National Curriculum of the UK, but adapted to suit the unique needs of the students. The subjects studied are:

● English
● Maths
● Science
● Geography
● Understanding the World
● UAE Social Studies

Extra-Curricular activities such as Art & Craft, Music, Motion Drama are very much a part of the weekly timetable. In addition, all classes within the Department makes provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice; a termly topic that is age appropriate and relevant. In order to help students access the Curriculum, digital resources, adapted keyboards, reading and writing support through the use of special programs such as Clicker 7 are extensively used.

We aim to help the students integrate with mainstream schools and work with parents towards it.
