Inclusion at DISD

Everybody is welcome with us. We adapt to the requirements of our students. Please see our Inclusion Policy here.

More information about our DISD Inclusion Team will be published on this page soon.

You will find more information about Dubai’s commitment to inclusive education here:

Dubai Inclusive Education Policy Framework

Law No.2 (2014).

Children and young people with their individual abilities are the focus of the German International School Dubai (DISD). Students with their various cultural and social backgrounds study here together successfully. Heterogeneity is recognized as being enriching. We believe, that the journey to becoming an Inclusive School will ultimately strengthen our school’s community and benefit ALL children. “Inclusion” does not simply mean the placement of students with disabilities in general education classes.

This process must incorporate fundamental change in the way a school community supports and addresses the individual needs of each child. As such, effective models of inclusive education not only benefit students with disabilities, but also create an environment in which every student, including those who do not have disabilities, has the opportunity to flourish. Inclusion means giving all our children and students every opportunity to achieve their highest potential.

The objective of the Inclusion Champion’s role is to initiate strategies that incorporate the ethos and vision and oversee the conception, implementation and constant development of our school wide inclusion concept

The German International School is an inclusive school and our commitment to inclusion is an essential part of how we understand ourselves as a school community. The values of our visionary statement of fairness, justice and responsibility as well as humanness are the base from where we source our commitment.
