Anti-bullying and Hurtful Behaviour Policy

At Nadeen School, we believe that all pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment without the fear of being bullied. Therefore, Nadeen School is committed to providing a caring, friendly, safe and secure environment for all our children so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere, without anxiety. It is made clear that bullying is a form of anti-social behaviour and bullying in any form is unacceptable at Nadeen School.

Attendance and Tardiness Policy

Regular attendance at school is essential to ensure uninterrupted progress and to enable children to extend their potential. The attendance pattern for all children is monitored monthly by the leadership team and class teacher, and the school seeks to work actively with parents to ensure a regular pattern is maintained.

Behaviour Policy

We believe that an appropriately structured curriculum and effective learning contribute to good behaviour. Thorough planning for the needs of individual pupils, the active involvement of pupils in their own learning, and structured feed- back all help to avoid the alienation and disaffection which can lie at the root of poor behaviour.

Chromebook Policy

The Chromebook’s function will provide each student access to required educational materials needed for each student to be successful. The Chromebook allows student access to Google Apps for Education, educational web-based tools, as well as many other useful sites. The device is an educational tool not intended for gaming, social networking or high-end computing.

Code of Conduct Policy

At Nadeen School we expect that our learners, parents, staff, and visitors show respect at all times towards the children, staff, parents, and visitors to the school, and to be respectful of our school’s diverse and international culture.

Complaints Procedure

Nadeen School maintains an open-door Policy, whereby parents and children are able to voice concerns to the teaching staff, school administration, and senior management at any time. In addition, the same applies to the staff, who are able to voice concern to the senior management at any time, in the knowledge that their concern will be dealt with in the strictest of confidence and with the assurance that the problem or concern will be dealt with as soon as possible.

Computing and ICT Policy

The use of information and communication technology is an integral part of the English National Curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Computers, tablets, programmable robots, digital and video cameras are a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. Children throughout the school will have the opportunity to develop their skills in computing well planned structures and progressive learning opportunities. These opportunities will equip children to participate in a rapidly changing world, where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating, safe and effective way.

Data Protection Policy

Everyone has rights with regard to the way in which their personal data is handled. During the course of our activities as a school we will collect, store and process personal data about our pupils, workforce, parents and others. This makes us a data controller in relation to that personal data. This policy exists in conjunction with Bahrain Law No. 30 of 2018.

Home Learning Policy

In line with our commitment to latest initiatives in Bahrain, we believe that home learning should be fun, provide opportunities for deeper learning and develop a well-rounded child. Our Home Learning Policy promotes collaboration with parents. Worldwide research into the value of prescriptive homework in a primary setting shows that it has very little to no impact on attainment and can even have negative effects on mental health and family life.

Online Safety Policy

Computing and the use of digital devices is seen as an essential resource to support learning and teaching, as well as playing an important role in the everyday lives of children, young people and adults. Consequently, schools need to build in the use of these technologies in order to arm our young people with the skills to access life-long learning and employment.

Safeguarding Policy

Nadeen School has various health, safety, and security policies in place to ensure that the children are safe. All these policies and procedures work in conjunction with our Safeguarding Policy. Nadeen School is committed to ensuring the safety of the children in our care through careful review and maintenance of policies. We believe that no child should ever experience abuse of any kind and we are committed to protecting the children in our care. We also believe that a positive, pro-active, and open home/school relationship is essential in promoting children’s welfare.
