Abstract:

The Sultanate of Oman’s education sector had improved dramatically over the past three decades. More school are available, the number of teachers in increasing, and special attention is given to the quality of services provided within these education institutions. In 2010 the Sultanate of Oman embarked on the implementation of the principles and concepts of Child-Friendly Schools within its Education system, through a Ministerial Decree, with the establishment of a National Working Group (NWG). The Child Friendly School initiative is one of the most effective tools in supporting drive toward the educational system. It aims to promoting child rights principles and creating a friendly space for the learning environment.

The MOE and UNICEF/Oman identified six CFS dimensions for the Omani model, working with a MWAI consultants: (1) Child Rights Promotion; (2) Health, Safety and Protection; (3) Inclusiveness; (4) Learning Effectiveness; (5) Gender Responsiveness; and (6) Stakeholders’ Participation. Furthermore, in recent years, early childhood education has moved to the forefront of Oman’s educational priorities. Accordingly, policies, regulations, decrees, initiatives, research studies are in place and are guiding the advancements being made in this area.

This session will describe the visioning and scaling up a Right – Based Approach to Education from early Childhood through Secondary School, through the CFS initiative, with the focus on the findings from the data collected in the pilot schools.
