Descriptions of strategic goals
Strengthening inclusive education. Inclusive education is a school culture that recognizes the uniqueness and value of one‘s personality and focuses on each child’s individual progress. It is based on pedagogical attitude that all students are different and achieve their best learning outcomes in a variety of ways. In inclusive education, teaching is planned and organized on the basis of acquiring knowledge about the student’s needs and experience: the participation of each child in all decisions of the educational process is consciously planned. In inclusive learning, all students become involved, show self-confidence and feel valued. Education moves beyond the traditional classroom: learning takes place in other internal and external areas of the school. The school community reflects on and discusses their learning activities as co-living events. The members of the community engages in self-assessment, are able to learn from their experiences, and reasonably plan for further learning.
Development of innovative education It is meaningful and purposeful learning, while taking advantage of the opportunities offered by modern technologies. Smart technologies at school are becoming equivalent to books and notebooks. Teachers are able to use the opportunities provided by smart technologies to individualize the educational process and strengthen students’ learning motivation. With the help of smart technologies, students’ personal progress is monitored and planned, and tasks are adapted to each student’s needs and pace of learning. Such education is attractive to kids. They willingly engage in learning, experience the joy of the process and are able to achieve the best results.
Creating enabling environments for everyone. The school creates environments that support and activate learning through communication and collaboration. The students are happy to learn in such environments, where they feel comfortable and engage in exploration and improvement. Advanced technologies as well as attractive methodologies and tools are used to getting to know ourselves and the world around us. Exploratory learning takes place in safe, inclusive and empowering areas inside and outside the school.
