In recent years, the Emirate of Dubai has been placing a stronger emphasis on people's well being with the aim of making Dubai "an inclusive and cohesive society (...) that is the preferred place to live, work and visit and a pivotal hub in the global economy". Within the education sector, KHDA and private schools have introduced a number of initiatives to help raise awareness, measure and support students' and staffs well being. This report analyses the well being policies and practices that KHDA and schools have implemented in Dubai's private school sector. In order to fulfil this objective, the OECD has taken a holistic picture view of well being in education, which is discussed in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 looks at Dubai's private schools as a whole, focusing on the school leadership and other key school staff. Chapter 4 focuses on teachers and their well being, an issue that has been relatively overlooked until recently. Finally, Chapter 5 discusses student well being and empowerment.
