JPS Connect is the name of our Inclusion department. We believe that all children, regardless of need, are entitled to be included at school and have equal access to the broad and balanced social and academic learning opportunities that JPS offers.

We offer a service to connect children who require additional support for learning in a range of different areas. We offer wellbeing support from our highly trained school counsellors and inclusion support for learning from our support teachers and learning support assistants. Specialist teachers provide 1-1 Maths and Literacy support. English Language Learning support for those new to English is provided by our ELL coordinator and boosted with the Lexia Core 5 programme. We offer The Listening Program® to develop students’ attention and provide Enrichment opportunities for Gifted and Talented students through our membership of the Dubai Enrichment League. 

We also connect learners to outside specialist services in school, such as Speech and Language and Occupational Therapy and Assessment services provided by Educational Psychologists. By accessing the services that JPS Connect can offer, we serve as a support service for children and their parents.
