  • Updated fax number +971-2-631 9490 (was +971-2-6413943). Mobile number supplied by AMPS as +971-2-5014777 but is incorrect, is landline number for school.

06 April 2011
  • Aldar Academies are opening a new primary school in Al Ain, which will have Heather Mann as the principal from September 2011. Unclear if she will still be taking on the principal's job at Al Muna from April 2011 as previously announced.
  • The Al Muna school principal's job for January 2012 or earlier is being advertised by the TES (closing date 08 April 2011), which says Due to the transfer of the current Head to Aldar Academies management group, we seek an experienced headteacher to take the school forward. NPQH qualification required. Transfer information is presumably referring to Mr Nourse Grewal.
28 October 2010
  • New principal for Al Muna Primary School will be Heather Mann from April 2011 according to information from the current head, Mr Nourse-Grewal: "I am very pleased to announce the new Principal for Al Muna from next April 2011 will be Mrs Heather Mann. She is delighted to move to Al Muna from Al Yasmina where she has been Head Teacher of the Primary School."

30 August 2009 review
  • Al Muna Primary School (AMPS) start date for 2009-2010 academic year is 06 September 2009. Telephone and fax numbers not confirmed.
  • UK National Curriculum offered, Foundation Stage in KG, Key Stages 1 and 2 up to Year 6. French taught from Year 3.
  • AMPS facilities include auditorium, computer room, football pitch, library, netball court, sports hall, swimming pool (25 meters). Separate play areas for FS, KS1, and KS2 students.
  • Head's name updated. Mr Christopher Nourse-Grewal was previously Headteacher at Loseley Fields Primary School in Godalming, UK, and Head Teacher at Sholing Junior School in Southampton before that.
  • Deputy head is Ms Shanahan (previously at Al Yasmina School, also an Aldar Academies School).
  • The new Al Muna school is in a renovated old government school building.
  • Still no website found, or telephone number. Try contacting Aldar Academies or Pearl Primary School for more information.
29 April 2009 review
  • Al Muna Primary School is a new Aldar Academies school, opening for September 2009. Assumed to be UK National Curriculum (NC) school.
  • Contact Pearl Primary School for further details at present.
  • No website found or provided yet but if following the pattern of other Aldar Academy schools, might be www.almuna.sch.ae. But not www.almunaschool.com since that is for the Al Muna International School, an Indian school in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, which is unrelated to the Al Muna School in Abu Dhabi.

General comments - might not apply to Al Muna Primary School
  • Many popular schools are full for 2018-2019. New schools in Abu Dhabi might have places.
