The school has also introduced a digital citizenship curriculum in all classes Grades 3 to 12. Children are growing up with the power of digital media and technology to explore, connect, create, and learn in new ways. With this power, young people have great opportunities, but they also face challenges and dilemmas. As we are dealing with the ramifications, including issues such as online safety, cyberbullying, privacy, hate speech, misinformation, and digital distraction. To address these issues, DPS Sharjah has endeavored to create a positive culture around media and technology by incorporating digital citizenship education as part of our curricula.

GIFTED & TALENTED
DPS Sharjah recognizes and tries to identify students with special gifts and talents. Teachers routinely try to stretch and challenge the most able in every lesson rather than have dedicated lessons for the most able. Opportunities are given to students of such ability and these students are encouraged to participate in competitions beyond the school.
SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES (SOD)
Students regardless of any barrier to learning are admitted, provided they are capable of fulfilling our high academic expectations and meet the criteria outlined in the Admissions Policy. Students who need additional support to reach their potential receive intervention on a needs-led basis in line with the DPS Sharjah SEND / SOD policy.
The school is strongly committed to inclusive education across all year groups; this provision includes one in which the teaching, learning, achievements, attitudes and well-being of all the students who gain admission to DPS Sharjah matter – including those identified as having additional needs.
Each class is likely to include students who have profound and multiple learning difficulties, students who may have challenging behaviour and students whose pattern of learning is represented by steady attainment in many areas of the curriculum. The class sessions are delivered incorporating individual learning objectives which are created following very individualised assessments. Class teachers and Special educators are responsible for the planning and delivery of the curriculum for the students within their class, and typically small group and individual teaching form the main teaching styles employed within the classroom.
The school offers the curriculum equally to all pupils regardless of gender, cultural background, race or religion. Within its’ current resources, the school attempts to discriminate positively on behalf of all pupils to compensate for any educational problems that are due to specific language difficulties, medical or physical disabilities or social attitudes caused by being in segregated specialist provision.
The DPS Sharjah counselling department provide all the requisite advise to students to choose and to apply into good colleges and universities. (Please check CCC Policy)
