We are delighted to announce our STEM initiative, that we will be launching as a pilot programme in September, with full roll-out from January 2018.
We are now able to share our DSIB inspection report for the academic year 2016-17. We are delighted to announce that VHPS has been upgraded in 10 of the DSIB’s key performance indicators. Amongst these improvements are the children’s progress and attainment in Science, our provision for promoting Inclusion and the children’s attainment in Islamic Studies.
Early results from external assessments carried out this term are demonstrating that 100% of our children are working at or above the UK curriculum standards, with the vast majority of these working significantly above UK standards.
It is testament to our children, staff and wider community that VHPS continues to advance and develop so rapidly. Indeed, the inspectors remarked upon the notable improvements the school had made in the short period since the last inspection, and also the supportive and enthusiastic nature of our parent community. We thank all of you for this.
We are extremely proud of our school, and will continuously strive to improve in order to benefit our amazing children.
For the upcoming academic year the model that we will be supplying, through BRAMS, our preferred partner is the ACER R11.
This is an 11.6inch Chromebook with touch-screen, and a 360degree hinge to allow it to be used in normal, tablet and tent modes.
The price of this device will be 1500aed, and this will include enrollment onto the school management system as well as Securly internet-filtering software, alongside a suite of apps used in school. Furthermore, these devices have 3 years warranty.
If you do wish to purchase from an alternative vendor, please be aware that you will have to pay a 1 time fee of 150aed to enroll in the Google Management Console and for the Securly web-filtering.
Please can you inform us of your intentions by completing the short form below.
