A 10-point code of conduct for all those employed in the UAE schools has been adopted by the country's ministry of education.

With special focus on Emirati culture and traditions, it will be a road map for all those working in the education sector to develop and groom future generations, highlighted UAE's minister of education Dr. Ahmad Belhoul Al Falasi.

Staff must always encourage positive values among students and motivate them to participate in the “national activities”.

They must protect children from any sort of abuse, and refrain from causing any harm to the children, verbally or physically.

All employees must respect and be aware of Emirati culture and traditions, maintain a dress code, and refrain from doing or promoting any illegal activities.

They must also treat the parent community kindly and respect cultural diversity.
