Escola Valeri Serra is a state school for children aged 3-12 years. It is located in Bellpuig, a small town in a rural area 120 km west from Barcelona.
The school has approximately 260 pupils and 19 teachers, with an increasing 34.5% of migrant pupils and a 15% of pupils with other specific or social needs.
The school develops projects aimed to improve reading skills, increase physical activity through sports and protect the environment.
It is also very important for us to:
. integrate pupils of diferent origins.
. achieve the best academic results in all our pupils.
. help our pupils to build on the idea of our European citizenship.
. improve their competence in another European language, English in this case.
. be aware of other European languages.
. improve their ICT skills.
In order to achieve these aims our school has been participating in different language projects for a long time: Orator (2003-2005), PELE (2005-2008) (2008-2011). We participated in a Comenius Multilateral Partnership (2007-2009) as a partner school and we coordinated a Comenius Multilateral Partnership (2011-2013). Both of them were related to cultural and social aspects.
Participation in an Erasmus + project would enable our children to promote their knowledge and experiences whilst interacting and learning from children of other European Countries.
