WELCOME TO ICS CITY CENTRE DIGITAL LEARNING

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Though these current circumstances were not foreseen and not ideal, for the safety of all of our families, it is important that we modify our learning approach right now to stop the spread of this virus.
Mrs Sharon Davis
Principal


We can all name a list of negatives associated with Distance Learning (Home Learning), but we should be thankful for the positives it brings too:

  • The opportunity to go to school and acquire and share and learn new knowledge with friends is a blessing. It is not guaranteed to all of the children in the world or even the UAE,  and we often take it for granted. This will remind us how privileged we are. 
  • Teachers as well as parents and students have taken responsibility for their own learning; particularly in developing their technology skills. 
  • Children are becoming far more independent, resourceful, creative, and active in their learning.
  • The world changes quickly and the move to virtual learning and working spaces brings opportunities; our students must have the skills and resilience to be able to adapt, so they will not be left behind as the world changes throughout their lifetime.
  • Parents being given the chance to be so involved in their children's learning is such a rare treat that many never would have experienced. These are memories we will remember for decades to come. 

Positives aside, we also know some families are experiencing untold difficulties; please do not hesitate to ask any of us for anything you need and we will be happy to help where we can. We miss your children tremendously and we hope that we are back in our new classrooms for the start of next academic year.

MESSAGE FROM PRIMARY LEADER

Ms Joanna Camph 
Primary Leader
"I am so pleased that our school community has come together to support each other through this crisis. Our pupils, parents and teachers are doing an amazing job and we are working together to continuously develop our home learning resources to make home learning more effective, fun and exciting for you at home. We understand that distance learning looks a little different in each home and so will do our best to support your needs. During this time, communication with your child’s teachers is imperative as we are all navigating these uncharted waters together. We thank you for your patience as you take on the new role of distance learning support for your child."
MESSAGE FROM SECONDARY LEADER

Ms Amal Diab 
KS3 Leader

“Being a secondary school leader is a privilege; I’m very proud to be one here in the ICS community. Working with dedicated staff, supportive parents and enthusiastic students makes us the success we are. ICS City Centre gives the skills and motivation for all to develop themselves and achieve their best. We believe in project-based learning, problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration where the students are the centre of the learning environment”. Distance Learning has given us the opportunity to develop these skills in new and exciting ways.

MESSAGE FROM INCLUSION

Mr Ben Crosby
Inclusion Leader

We recognise that parents of People of Determination are in a challenging position aiming to balance the academic and emotional needs of their children during distance learning. Every child with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) is different and will have different support needs in the current situation. At ICS, the Inclusion team’s priority is to support the continued academic progress of our highest-needs students while ensuring student wellbeing, and this is achieved by:

  • Taking the pressure off getting home learning completed where this is causing anxiety and stress for children and families.

  • Supporting teachers to ensure learning is inclusive and accessible to all the children in their class.

  • Providing videos and live support to the children with their Numeracy, English and Arabic Literacy learning.

  • Providing families with additional learning materials or directing families to useful resources to support individual student needs.
