SIA School Principal - James Batts

Dear SIA Community

What a wonderful first week back at school. I really enjoyed welcoming the learners back to school and meeting so many lovely families on the front gate and at pick up time. What really stood out for me was the number of happy faces, which as the Principal of SIA makes me feel really proud. I know we are planning some meet and greets next week in FS starting on the 6th. This an opportunity to come into school and learn more about our provision and some of our processes this year. For example we are very excited about introducing Read Write Ink and Century Tech. I know Ms Kush is keen to share her thoughts on planning for your childs ‘flight path’ through school and what that could look like with options and assessments. Keep an eye out for that dates and times of these sessions.

For those of you who haven’t been able to meet Mr. Danny and Ms. Kush this week at the gates. Please watch their videos linked below.



We had a very special ceremony this week for our SIA High Performers which was attended by the director of SPEA Dr Ali Al Hosani and his esteemed colleagues. Dr Ali Al Hosani supported me with handing out certificates to our superstar High Performers and we enjoyed discussing our HPL journey as we continue to strive to become the first school in Sharjah to be HPL certified. This was a proud moment for all and our amazing learners certainly should give themselves a pat on the back.


Next week is the International Day of Charity and I know Mr. Andy, our assistant head for pastoral and enrichment, is very keen to raise money for a good cause and will be sharing all the details with you soon.

I wish you a very happy weekend
