School Policies

Language Policy

Spanish is the language of instruction and the medium for the delivery of the SSAD curriculum. Other languages may be used for various purposes in the classroom and during instructional activities. However it must be remembered that gaining proficiency in Spanish is a priority, one that allows students to perform to the best of their ability in accessing the SSAD curriculum.

Non-Spanish speaking students can enter directly into the Spanish immersion program for the needed linguistic support.

Safeguarding and child protection

The Spanish School of Abu Dhabi plays an essential role in protecting children from abuse. To ensure that every child, regardless of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation, the school:

  • created safe environments for children and young people through strong safeguarding practices
  • ensures that adults who work in the school don’t pose a risk to children
  • guarantees that staff are well-trained: knowledgeable on how to respond to concerns and keep-up-to-date with policy and practice
  • teaches children and young people about staying safe by conducting regular drills
  • maintains an environment where children feel confident to approach any member of staff if they have a worry or problem.
