The school is always open to new methodologies and new projects to improve the learning process. For example, during these last 3 years the school is applying the main findings of the European founded project “INCLUD-ED Strategies for inclusion and social cohesion in Europe from education”, project co-funded by the European Commission within the Sixth Framework Programme (2002-2006) which include Dialogical Discussion Groups and interactive groups. Since one year ago the school is also applying the program DAME10, created by the Spanish Ministry of Health, to incorporate physical activity into the classroom. Other current school project is focused on playground-based intervention to improve coexistence and the level of physical activity in our pupils.
Our group of teachers attending the Erasmus project is mainly formed by 3 teachers with different skills and experience very valuable within the topic of the project.
