‘El Jarama’ Infant and Primary School is located in San Fernando de Henares (Community of Madrid, Spain). We have been a school with preferential access for hearing impaired students for six years now. We also offer educational access to students with a wide variety of disabilities and learning difficulties. These students are included in our regular student groups and receive support from our special education teachers and our language therapists.
We believe in inclusion and we work every day to offer greater opportunities to all kinds of people, including people with diverse cultural, social and economic backgrounds.
We also believe in the power and the need of European democratic values and citizen participation in democratic life.
We have been receiving training in how to better support our students and we have visited some Spanish schools with more experience on this type of students. We have also participated in an Erasmus+ consortium called ‘Languages, language and challenges: the value of communication in inclusion and educational achievement’. Eight of our staff members were given the opportunity to visit nine schools in three European countries. Jobshadowing was an excellent opportunity to improve our daily practice.
These are the schools we visited:
PRAGA (March 29th - 31st, 2022):
FINLAND (April 26th - 29th, 2022):
MUNICH (May 17th - 19th, 2022):
During academic year 2021-2022 we also acted as an Erasmus+ host school. One staff member from Spojená škola internátna in Slovakia visited our school on February 21st - 24th, 2022.
