Surprise checks find almost all Dubai private schools are following safety protocols. The findings are part of the updated data released by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) on Wednesday.
KHDA latest report ‘All Seasons Education — Spring Edition 2021’ includes data on the surprise visits conducted by the KHDA team to help schools, universities and early learning centres comply with Dubai government rules for health and safety.
Since May 2020, the team has made more than 20 visits to schools each day. During these visits, 93 per cent of all Dubai private schools, 92 per cent of universities, and 100 per cent of early learning centres were found to be compliant with health and safety protocols.
Key indicators of student well-being in Dubai continue to be positive. A sneak peek of the results of the ‘Dubai Students Wellbeing Census’, to be released next month, shows a five to six per cent increase in the proportion of students getting a good night’s sleep.
KHDA director-general Dr Abdulla Al Karam said: “Dubai’s private education sector has remained resilient despite the current global circumstances. Families continue to move to Dubai knowing they can choose between distance and face-to-face learning for their children, and that they will have access to high-quality education for both modes”.
