Describe your school's approach to education and teaching?

Our Vision
To provide a holistic and inclusive learning environment, where academic and personal excellence is inspired in all, empowering them to become globally responsible life-long learners.

Physical education and sport is an important aspect of a healthy lifestyle. How does your school ensure children engage in physical activity?

At Al Salam, we seek to provide extensive opportunities for the holistic intellectual and physical development of our students. The school day structure does impose restrictions on the diversity of options and activities we are able to provide our students. As a result, Al Salam School invests a high degree of importance on after-school extra-curricular activities and encourages students and parents to take full advantage of the different available opportunities.

How does your school promote healthy lifestyles?

We provide and encourage a well-balanced curriculum which incorporates all aspects of a healthy mind and body in a caring and compassionate environment with the involvement of students, teachers, families and the community.

Is there a school uniform?

Students at Al Salam are expected to arrive at school in proper school uniform every day. Our uniform is functional and distinctive and helps students to dress neatly and to identify with the school.

Which languages are taught at your school - please detail any as a first as well as second language?

French is a compulsory subject from Year 3.

Do you offer EAL or TEFL support for those students where English is not their first language?

Yes, we have EAL support across the school.

Do you have a learning support team in your school?


Do you offer specific activities, events or information sessions for those parents new to the school and/or area?

We conduct regular Coffee Mornings where we share important information linked to the curriculum with parents, as well as informing parents what happens in class.
