Each unit requires 45 minutes of the lesson across half of a term or across two half-terms.
The curriculum framework for Moral Education is divided into four main pillars:

  • Civic Studies
  • Cultural Studies
  • Individual and Community
  • Character and Morality

A “moral of the month” is set during each half term such as Honesty. The moral is then run as a theme throughout the school. Students are asked to design a logo for the pillar and winning entries are displayed in the school. Moral Education afternoons are set where a community-based project is planned on valuing diversity.

Under the Moral Education programme, students visit various locations in Dubai during cultural and civic studies to enhance their learning experience. External speakers are also invited to explain to students about their career and cultural heritage.

DISTANCE LEARNING AT THE SHEFFIELD PRIVATE SCHOOL

As per the instructions of The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA), all schools across the UAE will discontinue distance learning from January 2022.

KHDA Rating

The KHDA provides comprehensive information regarding private schools in Dubai. It also suggests the improvement needed by the school. Every year, KHDA inspects all the schools in Dubai and judges their performance based on a 6-point scale. The rating ranges from outstanding to very weak.

khda SCHOOL RATINGS
KHDA School Ratings

The KHDA inspected the school from 18th to 21st November in 2019 and rated it as “Good.”

As per Sheffield Private School KHDA rating and report, children at Sheffield School make consistent good progress in the Foundation Stage. However, their attainment and progress in other phases are inconsistent. Students make good attainment and progress in English and Mathematics in primary phase. Students show the strongest learning skills in the secondary and post-16 phases.

There is a strong work ethic as older students give valuable support to younger students and act as role models. Students in post-16 level have a deep understanding of different cultures in Dubai and the world. Students have developed a strong sense of environmental awareness and understand local and global issues. They also participate in a wide range of community activities.

Teachers in the post-16 phase skilfully develop students’ problem solving and critical thinking skills. In other phases, teachers are required to use questions well enough to encourage students and enable them to think deeply about their learning. The reliability of assessment has improved in the FS and successfully sustained in the secondary phase. Assessment in the primary phase is not consistently accurate.

School curriculum is well-designed and is implemented in the post-16 phase. Students have opportunities to follow their interest and prepare for the higher education phase and professional life. The enhanced and enriched curriculum during this phase also provides opportunities for students to be innovative and creative. Curriculum is not consistently adapted in other phases and it does not meet the needs of all groups of students.

The school provides an exceptionally safe environment for learning. Students of determination and Gifted and Talented students get effective support. Students’ well-being is carefully fostered. Students also get very good guidance for their future beyond the school.

School leaders have a good understanding of the best practices in teaching. They use their expertise to continuously support and train staff. Leaders use self-evaluation procedures to identify improvement areas. However, this is not rigorous enough to provide an accurate evaluation of the schools’ effectiveness.

Sheffield School has established a very good partnership with parents. The governing board increasingly provides an appropriate challenge and support. The school also has effective day-to-day management.

Best features of the school are:

  • The quality of teaching in the post-16 level that results in strong academic and personal development outcomes.
  • The harmonious learning environment which is a result of the care and support provided to students
  • The outstanding attention given to students’ and staffs’ health and safety
  • The very good partnership between parents and school that enables parents to support their children’s learning effectively.

Key recommendations made by the KHDA include:

  • The need to improve reading, writing and mathematical problem solving skills in the primary phase
  • The school must improve progress in Arabic as a second language in the secondary phase
  • Teachers must make good and consistent use of questioning
  • Teachers’ assessment procedures need to be better in the primary phase
  • Data from external assessments that moderates internal assessment information must be used to ensure the accuracy of self-evaluation
