ZSP Siemianice

Our public school consists of Kindergarten, Primary (students aged 3-13) and Junior High ( aged 13-16). There are about 50 teachers, 460 students in school located in suburbs of town Słupsk, 17 kilometers from the Baltic Sea. The school offers a wide range of extracurricular activities which are carefully prepared by highly qualified staff using newest multimedia equipment.Our aim is constant development, having qualified teachers who are able to face changes in modern world, inspire their students, search for their talents,interests. School takes part in projects (Comenius, Erasmus+, Youngster, eTwinning) as the European Development Plan of institution points to continual experience in the international field. 

We were awarded: Comenius Good Practice school in 2015, School with Class, Safe School, Friendly Atmosphere School. Many teachers started innovations instead of regular lessons, combine theory with unusual methods to enrich own workshop and to involve students potential.

School motivation to join and lead project is to teach the students to be confident lifelong learners, to respect and find tolerance towards one another in order to integrate successfully in today’s  international society. Important reason is a deep need to follow the changing requirements of community that tends to reduce stress and speed of gaining knowledge, to limit homework and give best quality education that discovers students’ talents and helps in understanding the world or teaches healthy lifestyle. 

Developing students individuality and supporting their good feeling of learning is very crucial aspect for us. Giving positive “ I can do this”- feeling effects students’attitude to learn and make it easier.We believe that every child, from every country is capable of reaching its potential, and that many exceed personal goals when there is learning climate which is orderly, secure and focused. 

Local society is involved in all decisions we make and guarantee full support. We have realized that nowadays students are able to use ICT very easily, but unluckily they spend too much time using digital devices. Next visible conclusion that all adults have is fact that the social needs, communication among people and involvement disappear very rapidly in the modern youth’s world. Changing digitally involved students into more open to others, more curious of the world and managing the every day situations without stress or tension.

We have to face many social, educational problems and we understand that the basic communication is always relevant. People who will be in charge of this project are experienced teachers of English (coordinator Joanna Charczun) having passion and interests that will make the project more various, they are innovators, coordinators, workshop leaders.Other involved educators of Primary /education, ICT understand how important is to share good practice, motivate and being motivated for work on European priority areas to broaden horizons in education.
