Pastoral Care

Our Heads of Year work closely with students to ensure great pastoral care

Jumeirah College seeks to provide a quality British Education in a caring and individualised learning environment that is enhanced through a friendly and constructive partnership with parents.

We carefully monitor the children's progress through the College and ensure that students are set appropriately challenging targets for learning. There is a strong emphasis on achievement and the celebration of success.

Our happy and supportive environment enriches the learning process and provides the students with a well-rounded education that builds confidence and self-discipline. Our child-centred approach nurtures the individual abilities of each child. Students are taught to think independently, to utilise their own initiative and innovation and to actively participate in the learning process.

The children are equipped with all the skills required in a challenging and changing world. The focus of the National Curriculum together with the wider College curriculum is to ensure that the children develop the essential Literacy and Numeracy skills, alongside a breadth of subjects that will extend their knowledge and understanding as well as their creativity.

We seek to inspire in our students, a joy and commitment to learning that will last a life time.

The Pastoral System is organised in year groups, under the leadership of a Head of Year. On entry to Jumeirah College each student is placed in a form group under the care of a personal Form Tutor, who will, as far as possible, progress through the College with the same group. A Head of Year leads each team of tutors and oversees each student's progress throughout their education journey.

The Form Tutor is the first point of contact for parents and teachers on any issue concerning the child and will be responsible for monitoring all aspects of welfare and academic progress. The College actively promotes strong links with parents to ensure that at all times necessary key people are kept fully informed of any concerns the College or parents may have.
