Punctuality: It is very important for our students to be punctual to school. This is in line with our core values of the school and to inculcate responsible attitude and behavior amongst them. We would appreciate if parents make an effort to bring and pick up their children to and from school ON TIME. The names of students who are late will be recorded and a letter will be sent to the parents of students who are late more than 3 times and disciplinary action will be taken against such students. We also would like to remind parents not to take their children earlier than the set dispersal time as students will lose learning time.


Mobile Phones and Other Gadgets: The school does not allow students to bring their mobile phones or any other gadgets to school. Please make sure your children abide by this school policy. Any gadgets found with the student will be confiscated and will only be released once parents come to school to claim them.

School Uniform (Student dress code): All students must come in neat uniform including their student I.D.’s and children must wear full school uniform each day to school. The school policy requires ALL students to use their I.D.’s at all times while they are in the school premises.

Celebration Of Student Birthdays In School: Kindly note that school does not allow celebration of Birthdays in school. Students are allowed to come in a decent colored dress on the day of their birthday for Kindergarten to Grade 6 only. The school does not permit the students to bring and distribute any kind of foodstuff not just during birthdays but on any day including chocolates and toffees, fizzy drinks and any kind of chips. Please be assured that at Al Ain Juniors, student’s health, safety and security are given the highest priority. It is our constant endeavor to ensure that our teachers and other members of staff deliver the best services for the benefit of our students in important matters of child protection, health, discipline and behavior as per our Policy which is in line with ADEK and Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA) regulations.
