We have embedded the use of technology in our education by implementing a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) programme. BYOD revolutionises teaching and learning methods, establishing greater interactivity, connectivity, collaboration, discovery and processing of information, as well as access to information, and creative thinking and innovation. We specialise in using Teams & OneNote to personalise & accelerate learning, teaching students how to take greater ownership of their education.
The secure Wi-Fi coverage at our school allows students to bring in their own devices (laptops, tablets etc.), and connect to the school network, internet, Virtual Learning Environment, e-library, e-resources, software and hardware, and use the devices within classrooms and the greater school for enhanced and interactive learning. The Fortes VLE app is a communication portal between Parents, Child and Teachers. If you are facing any technical issue while accessing your account, please send an email to email@example.com with your email address, description of your problem, any error messages and steps to reproduce a specific issue.
Regent International School continues in the tradition of a Fortes school with a strong Parent Engagement Programme. Parent’s are as much a part of our community as the children and are involved in all aspects of school life. Parents participate with their child’s education by attending assemblies, Parent’s Evenings, helping out with reading clubs and joining our popular monthly Mindful Monday sessions which provide them with useful parenting and lifestyle advice from our Senior Leadership Team, School Counsellors or external speakers.
Parent Relationship Manager
At Regent International School we have a Parent Relationship Manager at the school’s main reception who is on hand to answer many of your general day to day concerns or queries on 04 360 8830 ext. 100 or on email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All RIS parents automatically become members of ‘Friends of Regent International School’ (FRIS) when their child joins the school. FRIS is a group of parent volunteers who actively participate to support and enhance the work of the school. FRIS is primarily a fund-raising, support and events organisation that binds our school community. FRIS plan events and activities throughout the year to fundraise in order to provide additional resources and activities that enhance the learning experience of our children. Some events hosted by FRIS are to raise funds towards various charitable initiatives.
The Friends of Regent International School (FRIS) play a central role in our school, organising various community events throughout the course of the year. Some calendar favourites are Movie Night, International Day, Cup Cake Sales, Mother’s Day, the Dance-A-Thon and the Spring Egg Hunt to name a few. They also provide vital support to parents and families joining the School or who have just moved to Dubai. The FRIS coffee mornings and the FRIS ‘Healthy Hub’ are a great way to make new friends and socialise. If you would like to know more about the activities and events organised by FRIS or how to actively join this parent body, please contact our FRIS Coordinator in the Administration department.
The Governing Body at Regent International School has been recognised by the KHDA inspection team as being generously staffed, in an outstanding building to enable students to receive a high-quality education. Our Governance Committee comprises the Board of Directors (BOD) and an Advisory Council. The Board includes the owners and the Board of Directors who are proactively involved in the day to day life and strategic direction of the school. The Advisory Council called “RISAC” comprises all stakeholders including parents, teachers and Senior Leaders.
This body meets three to four times a year and provides regular inputs to the Board. The Advisory Council’s role is to support continuous improvement planning, guide development and hold the school’s leadership accountable for the quality of education delivered. Sub-committees have also been created to enable parents and leaders to evaluate key aspects of provision in more detail. Sub-committees focus on the key areas of: Inclusion, Child Protection, Safeguarding, Health & Safety, Learning and Teaching, Attainment and Progress, Leadership and Professional Development.
