Our Learner Profile

The KC Dubai Learner Profile is a set of attributes and values that we encourage our whole school community – students, staff and parents – to adopt. Our Learner Profile has been developed in collaboration with pupils and staff and equally reflects the KHDA’s vision for schools to develop 10 Key Character Traits.

These qualities are firmly embedded in learning and behaviour across our school. Pupils regularly consider the attributes of the Learner Profile and have a genuine understanding of each of the qualities, starting in the Foundation Stage and developing as the children move through the school.


We help others both in and outside the school community. We care about other people and are always respectful of them in everything we do.

We keep trying, even when we find something challenging. We learn from our mistakes and adapt positively to changing situations.

We are respectful to all viewpoints and recognise the differences and beliefs of the world. We demonstrate flexibility when solving problems.

Students engaged in discussion


We learn from past experiences and use them to understand ourselves better. We try to think before acting or speaking too soon.

2 students in reflection


We communicate clearly and effectively; we learn to express ourselves well in different languages, through speaking, writing and technology. We share our ideas. We listen to other people and reflect on their thoughts and ideas.

Students in classes


We are honest with a strong sense of fairness and justice. We show respect and take responsibility for our actions and their consequences. We know the difference between right and wrong, and practise it.

Students learning outdoors


We use our imagination and follow our own instincts of learning and questioning. We think outside the box, and develop the confidence to be original and daring.

We have real goals and a passion for our learning and wider achievements. We are driven and motivated to achieve in all areas of our learning. We show a can-do approach by looking for solutions, not obstacles.

Students playing outdoors


We take risks and are ready for challenges. We try new things and understand it is alright to get things wrong provided we learn from it. We confront issues instead of avoiding them.

We develop the skills to think for ourselves and be independent in our learning. We have the confidence to take the lead and offer support and encouragement to others. We adopt a positive approach to everything.
