Sumár projektu:Basic school in Kurima is the Eastern Slovakian village with 250 pupils. In Slovakia, number of pupils with special educational needs has been increasing recently, which is also the case for our school. There are 50 pupils with special educational needs at Basic school in Kurima; more than half of them come from Roma minority. Achieving successful teaching and learning of such pupils is more difficult, especially when teaching staff do not have background information and support by specialist staff. Therefore, since January 2018 our school has participated in the national project 'More successful at basic schools' with the aim of creating an inclusive learning environment. There are new specialist staff members fully employed at our school (a school psychoogist, a special educational needs teacher and 2 teaching assistants). They help our integrated pupils with their learning dificulties, but their work is still at the beginnings; moreover, there has not yet been the established system of supporting such pupils at our school. In our opinion, it is important to acquire experience and skills from a well-functioning system abroad. That is the main objective of our project - to learn more about special educational needs with the focus on the organizational aspect of creating an inclusive learning and innovative methods which will help our pupils be more active and successful in their learning. In order to reach objectives of this project, 2 staff members have been selected for international teacher development courses in Britain: the headmaster of school, Mr Urda, who will observe how inclusion works at other schools and an English language teacher, Mrs Kurtyova, who will be interested in specific teaching methods that could be used with our pupils and in how to use them effectively in classrooms. Acquiring new knowledge and skills from abroad, the participants are expected to help create an inclusive learning environment which is operated in the best possible way for the specific needs of our pupils. We believe that creating a good inclusive learning environment at our school is a very important step towards the future. It is our obligation to assure the same opportunity to be successful to all our pupils.
