Using School’s yard for ALL child’s wellbeing and development
Descrição

The first years in life are of critical importance to develop cognitive and non-cognitive skills, but also to develop civic attitudes towards others, so to invest in this stage of development is crucial to ensure an inclusive society. For a real social inclusion of children with SEN we need to promote more social contact between pupils with SEN and pupils without impairments. This project is focused on bringing together children with SEN and children without impairment, in a context of formal and non-formal education, offering innovative methodologies to enable the success for all learners as well as a sense of belonging. The main goal of the project is to invest on the qualification of teaching & learning, setting up a network of inclusive schools and inclusive community organisations. This will be set up and tested by a consortium of 3 schools, 2 universities, 3 NGOs, 1 foundation and 1 enterprise.

 

The project foresees the below objectives:

1) to improve the learning quality of children, using non-formal learning and teaching environments to: promote more social contact between pupils with SEN and pupils without impairments; develop innovative learning processes guided by flexible curricula

2) to strengthen professionals’ attitudes, skills and abilities, providing them training opportunities aligned with national- and local-level policy goals for and understandings of inclusive education

3) to use an alternative learning environment - school yards - to create an innovative methodology to develop ALL CHILDREN mathematics, science and other competences (e.g. entrepreneurship and creativity)

4) to build on the existing resources following the principles of permaculture in the economy of hydric resources, soil conservation, activation of the microbiological fauna and plague protection.

5) to increase the parents’ and community’s participation by organizing local fairs of agro products in order to raise financial resources for the sustainability of the project (sell seeds and products, implementing principles of the Fair Trade).

The objective is to use the yard of the school as a tool to increase teachers skills and bring all children together. This is an opportunity for formal (STEM) and non-formal education as well as quality and inclusive education.
