Please note that learning at EMS continues as normal during Ramadan. We look forward to seeing all our students during the Holy month of Ramadan.
Our mission is to provide a challenging, internationally based education that nurtures lifelong learners in a multi-cultural setting.
Our vision is for all our students to reach their full potential and positively impact their world.
At English Modern School Doha we embrace internationalism through acceptance of differences, values, and beliefs in our community. This is emulated through our expected school wide learning results (ESLRs).
New Academic Year: 2018/19
Students 1st day at school will be Wednesday 29th August 2018
No hat, no play.
As temperatures rise we encourage students to bring a hat for morning break times.
As per our heat policy we are spending 2nd breaks inside when the temperature rises above the Ministry of Health's recommended temperatures.
Each Google Classroom & Google Site class page is written by individual teachers for their students. All of our teachers are different and present their projects to their classes in different ways and students progress at different rates.
If you have any questions regarding your child's class Google Site or Google Classroom please communicate with your class teacher.
Social Media and mental health
Cambridge International Education have published an article detailing the consequences of long term internet exposure which can include;
"Social media is here to stay. Its multiple platforms can bring social, educational and psychological benefits to young people, provided that the risks of psychological distress are minimised. Developing young people’s digital resilience is a step in the right direction..."
There has been a rise in students accessing and repeating language and behaviours that are inappropriate for their age groups.
Do you monitor your child online?
Are you aware of the content they are accessing on YouTube?
Do you know what time your child is online until at night?
Summer hours start Sunday 13th May until Thursday 14th June.
EMS Primary Curriculum Guides - The following curriculum frameworks provide a set of progressive learning objectives for Mathematics, English and Science, taken directly from the Cambridge Curriculum Frameworks. The objectives detail what the learner should know or what they should be able to do by the end of that year in Primary.

Welcome, we are the Primary Administrative team at EMS.
Our Primary School consists of KG 1 & 2 class and Year 1 - 6 classes.
Ms Joneen and Ms Julia welcome you to Lower Primary in Block D and Block E with KG1, KG2, Year 1 and Year 2.
Ms Angela and Mr Lewis welcome you to Upper Primary in Block D and Block F with Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Ms Liz supports our teachers and parents with teaching and learning while Mrs Tucker will be supporting student welfare this year.
Our teachers are highly qualified and very experienced both internationally and in the Middle East region. We are impressed by their knowledge, commitment to student learning, dedication and enthusiasm.
In the Primary school one of our main objectives is to develop within each student a genuine love of learning. We want each student to feel that ‘buzz” of excitement when they learn something new, whether it be in academics, sports or the arts. Successful adults are those who love to learn and who know how to push themselves forward into unknown areas. We want our students to develop this lifelong skill.
Secondly, we work very hard to ensure that every student develops the core curricular skills of reading, writing, math and science. These are foundational areas for future learning and we will support every child to reach their own potential.
Another objective for us is to ensure that our school functions as an effective, inclusive, internationally minded community; one where everyone feels safe, secure and where each individual knows how to be a successful member.
Working alongside parents is very important to everyone at EMS. We encourage you to join in with the school events, visit us often and talk and share with us about your child. Your feedback is always welcome and helps us to improve our school. If we don't know there is a problem we cannot try to fix it.
The year promises, once again, to be a great one at EMS!
We look forward to seeing you soon at one of our events.
