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 eight 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): Sofia School, Skola Holeckova, Veda School

FINLAND (April 26th - 29th, 2022): Kanniston Koulu, Lauttasaaren Koulu, Saunakallion koulu

MUNICH (May 17th - 19th, 2022): Jan Amos Comenius Grundschule, Montessori im Olympiapark, Anni Pickert Schule

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.

We proudly announce that we have been granted a new Erasmus+ project for the academic year 2023-2024 (finishing in December 2024). Six of our staff members will visit some European schools in the coming months. This new project is called "Inclusion, sustainability and digitization: innovating to make classrooms of the future a reality". Its goals are:

1. Improving general teaching practice regarding students with language disorders, and especially students with hearing impairment.

2. Exploiting the possibilities offered by digital technologies and the spaces available at the school, making them flexible and adapting them to our needs.

3. Promoting the approach of students to nature in a sustainable way.
