Does your school have a waiting list?

We are now accepting names for the 2017-2018 Waiting List. You may submit your child’s name by completing the waiting list form (through the school website atwww.alsalamschool.ae under Admission Section).

Please note-

1) The school will only maintain the list of students applied through online waiting list form.

2) Student information for the waiting list will not be taken over the phone or email.

3) Preference in admission is given to siblings.

4) No student will be admitted ahead of other eligible students on the Waiting List.

5) There will be a separate waiting list for children who have been identified as having special needs.

6) Students who are on the Waiting List as non-siblings and become a sibling, due to the admission of their brother/sister in Al Salam, will be given sibling status. It is the parent’s responsibility to notify the school if this occurs.

7) Students on the Waiting List will be contacted by phone if a place becomes available. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to notify the school with any change of contact information.

8) The student’s name will remain on the waiting list until the next registration in 2018. If your child is not admitted for the 2017-2018 school year and you would like them to be considered for the 2018-2019 school year, you will need to submit a new online application in January 2018.
