Health & Safety

The safety and wellbeing of our students is of paramount importance. The school provides systems and structures that are developmentally appropriate which help to guide and support each student – academically, socially and emotionally. Each student is assigned to a homeroom with a teacher who meets with them daily to monitor their progress and offer opportunities which can foster student personal, social and emotional development.

Inclusion Team

Our Inclusion Team is made up of various specialists including Learning Support teachers, assistants, school counselors and school nurses. The aim of this team of specialists is to monitor students identified as benefiting from additional support to ensure that all students who study at SZPAB are given the opportunity to learn to the best of their abilities and to reach their full potential. In addition to monitoring students, the team advises the teaching staff to identify strategies that may further support individuals who require additional assistance. Learning support is provided based on assessed student needs to enable the school to provide additional and specialized instruction from a member of our team.

Tolerance & Respect

All students will be treated respectfully regardless of ethnicity, abilities or other category lending itself to discrimination. Likewise, students are expected to treat all adults and fellow colleagues in the building with respect.


‘Zayed Tolerance Pledge'


All SZPAB students must abide by Zayed’s Tolerance Pledge which states:


“Uphold the duty of tolerance, to take a firm stance against hate and injustice, to respect and accept people whose abilities, beliefs and culture are different from their own, to wish for others what they wish for themselves, to live in harmony with their community, to always be open to dialogue and forgiveness, to do their part to create peace for all, to exercise benevolence and choose kindness in all their dealings with their communities, and to always stand up for Zayed’s values for tolerance and human fraternity”.

Safety and Security

The SZPAB guidelines for safety and security are posted throughout the school to ensure uniform, orderly and timely responses to emergencies. Homeroom teachers explain emergency procedures for building evacuation and relocation to a safer area of the school. Safety drills are conducted on a regular basis so that students know the appropriate responses in an emergency situation or scenarios.

Child Protection 

At SZPAB, we believe that all children have a right to be safe, protected from abuse and able to reach their full potential. The primary concern of all staff must be the interests and safety of children. All staff members have a pastoral duty towards children. Due to our day-to-day contact with individual children, we are well placed to observe outward signs of abuse, changes in behavior or failure to develop.
