KHDA age group UK National curriculum school

The KHDA (Knowledge and Human Development Authority - governing body for Education in Dubai) set entry age for early years’ students within their legislation as follows:

The KHDA curriculum guidelines run from 1st of January to 31st of December.

  • Age 3 (Jan 1st to 31st December) FS1
  • Age 4 (Jan 1st to 31st December) FS2/KG1
  • Age 5 (Jan 1st to 31st December) Year 1/KG2

The UK curriculum guidelines run from 1st September to 31st August:

  • Age 3 (on or by 31st August) FS1
  • Age 4 (on or by 31st August) FS2/KG1
  • Age 5 (on or by 31st August) Year 1/KG2

From Year 2 entry onward we follow Transfer certificate information from the previous school and results from assessment.

For students born between 1st September and 31st December there is an overlap in the year of entry between the UK and KHDA guidelines. For children affected we take into account the UK age appropriate year group of your child and also the KHDA year group at assessment. From the results of assessment your child will be offered a seat in the most appropriate year group according to your child's development, readiness for school and ability - physically, socially and emotionally for that year group.

For more information or if you would like to discuss this further, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Transfer Certificate Policy


TAS is governed by the rules and regulations of Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), the regulatory authority in Dubai. Placement in a Year Group from Year 2 onwards is based on the Transfer Certificate provided at the time of Application.


Applicants for Foundation 1 to Year 1 are placed according to the age norms stipulated by UK National Curriculum.


Students transferring from:


  • A country in Africa, South Africa, the Middle East (except for UAE), South and Central America, Eastern Europe, Asia, Russia and the CIS, need to provide an original transfer certificate attested by the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and UAE Embassy in that country.
  • A country in North America, UK, Western Europe, Australia or New Zealand need to provide an original transfer certificate on the last school’s letterhead, signed and stamped.
  • An Emirate in the UAE, need to provide an original transfer certificate in Arabic on the last school’s letterhead, signed and stamped, and attested by the Ministry of Education in that Emirate.
  • A school within Dubai, need to provide a Transfer Certificate (not attested) from the previous school. The previous school needs to be informed that the student is transferring to our school, so the previous school can electronically transfer the child via the KHDA’s online portal.

Note, all Transfer Certificates must be in the correct format, signed and stamped (attested), as necessary, in order for your child to be registered at UAE Ministry of Education and the KHDA.


Registration of students is subject to the approval of the Ministry of Education and KHDA. Please note that without the Transfer Certificate it will not be possible to legally register your child in school or with the Ministry of Education or KHDA.

Can my child celebrate his/her birthday at school

Whilst we recognise that occassions such as your child's birthday, relegious celebrations or cultural events are special we do not hand out any type of sweets, biscuits or cakes on theses occassions.


To mark theses occassions we will accept a small toy/sticker/pencil that can be given out at the end of the day to the students by the class teacher if you choose to do so.


If you wish to give any other kind of treat to your child's classmates then these need to be individually wrapped and personally handed out at the end of the school day and once lined up in the playground.


Please be aware that some children may have food allergies and intolerances.


We thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter and in being mindful of the schools healthy eating policies.
