Al Mushrif Primary School heads
  • [Start date when?] Emma Shanahan (Head Teacher), previously at Al Muna School (Deputy Head).
  • 01 Apr 2013 - Mr Alistair Bond (Principal). Previously Deputy Principal at the The Pearl Primary School Abu Dhabi. Went back there as Principal after Al Mushrif position.
  • 01 Aug 2011 - Ms Michelle Forbes (Principal). Transferred to position of Education Development Partner for Aldar Academies from 01 Apr 2013.
Al Mushrif School new location
  • Al Mushrif Primary School started operations in September 2011 with shared facilities at the Al Bateen Secondary School campus in Al Rowdah district, a temporary arrangement while new buildings were constructed somewhere else (location not provided).
  • AMPS said "Beyond 2013, plans are in place for Al Mushrif School to re-locate to a new school site. From 2011-2013, Al Mushrif School will benefit from shared access to the state of the art facilities within the Al Bateen Secondary School Campus."
  • 13 Jun 2013 newsletter from the principal said "I appreciate that you are as keen as I am to discover if our bid for a new school site has been successful. I would like to assure you that I will be in immediate contact with you all once we have been informed of the outcome."
  • As of September 2013, Al Mushrif School is still operating at the Al Bateen School campus, details and timeline of construction and relocation to new campus not provided.
27 October 2014
  • Al Mushrif School (AMPS) name changed (again) to Abu Dhabi Primary School according to AMPS. Which sounds odd. The school is now referred to as Al Mushrif School, Al Mushrif Primary School, and Abu Dhabi Primary School, all at the same time, according to school information.
  • AMPS is listed in the ADEC school directory as Al Bateen Secondary-Al Mushrif Private School, email address albateensec.pvt@adec.ac.ae (but emails sent there are not replied to).
  • School location is still at Aldar's Al Bateen Private School campus. No updated information provided about relocation plans and new campus.
  • Postal address updated to PO Box 129071 Abu Dhabi (same as for Al Bateen Secondary School). Previously was PO Box 128484 Abu Dhabi for Aldar Academies head office, not PO Box 12848 (given in some directory listings, presumably a typo).
20 July 2013 review
  • School name appears to have changed to Al Mushrif School (AMS) (Al Mushriff). Aldar Academies website still has the name Al Mushrif Primary School but school website has the new name Al Mushrif School, so presumably Aldar Academies hasn't caught up yet (date of change not provided). Might also be referred to as Al Mushrif International Primary School or similar. AMPS can't seem to make up their minds about the name.
  • No information given to say if the name change means AMS will expand into a classes beyond Year 6, or remain as a primary school.
  • AMS was rated as Band A: High Performing School in the May 2012 Abu Dhabi Education Council inspections (according to Aldar Academies information).
  • AMS location is at the Al Bateen Primary School or Al Bateen Secondary School campus from 2011-2013. Aldar Academies say "Al Mushrif School opened two years earlier than originally planned, temporarily located within the Al Bateen School Campus. From 2011-2013, Al Mushrif School pupils benefit from shared access to the state of the art facilities within the Al Bateen Secondary School Campus."
  • Unclear where AMS is, whether the campus is relocating, or where to if it is. Aldar Academies say "beyond 2013, exciting plans are in place for Al Mushrif School to re-locate to a new school site" but did not give further details.
06 April 2011 review
  • Al Mushrif Primary School (Al Mushriff, Al Moshref) is a new Aldar Academies school in Abu Dhabi with opening date of September 2011 according to teaching job positions advertised. Some previous information about establishing an Al Bateen Primary School said that AMPS would be opening in September 2013. Unknown if the date has changed, or if there are two Al Mushrif schools now planned.
  • Oddly, they are advertising in the Times Educational Supplement (UK) for "Secondary Specialist Teachers - Geography" for the primary school: Aldar Academies - Join Our Successful Team In Abu Dhabi, UAE - Two new Primary Schools to open September 2011! - Al Mushrif Primary School Abu Dhabu [sic] - Aldar Academies Primary School Al Ain.
  • Job applications close 08 April 2011. Send application and CV to Mr Jim Harvey, MA at careers@aldaracademies.com.
  • Details of salary package not supplied. Although the advertisement does say salaries are "attractive." Benefits include accommodation, worldwide medical cover, annual return flights, shipping allowance, and end-of-contract gratuity.
  • Fee structure not supplied but probably similar to the other Aldar primary schools in Abu Dhabi - about AED 40,000 in 2010-2011.
  • Contact details etc not supplied, no information found on Aldar Academies website, contact Aldar Academies directly for more details.
