Szkola Podstawowa nr1 im.kpt. Leonida Teligi
Primary School no 1 is situated in a new western part of a small town Ustka. Our town is located on the Slowinski Coast, at the mouth of the Slupia River to the Baltic Sea. It is a port town, tourist resort with beautiful sea beaches. Inhabitants of Ustka have been intensively engaged in fishing for many centuries. There are 50 teachers and 502 students at the age from 6 to 14. Our school is characterized by a very good relationship between community groups, friendly atmosphere for all, mutual respect, maintaining traditions and respect for national symbols. The school helps students to
believe in themselves, motivates to work, fairly assesses and delivers a high quality of teaching. The school takes into account the needs of all students, including those gifted and less able. Moreover, it helps students to discover and develop their talents, promotes their achievements and offers a wide variety of compulsory and optional tasks. Our school is safe and caring space where no child is anonymous. Every employee takes careful consideration of our students. We have a psychologist, a
school therapist and a speech therapist. They co-operate with all teachers and parents. They also help to overcome students’ problems and work efficiently with children with special needs like ADHD, autism, dyslexia, reading defect, sight or hearing problems. We would like to involve these children in the project in as many innovative ways as possible. The key person in charge of running the project will be the English teacher. However, all school staff- especially other English, ICT, Science, Geography, Maths, History, Art and D.T. teachers are experienced in European projects (5 Comenius and Erasmus+ projects). Teachers, who will be the key people in charge of running the project, besides the coordinator, are other English teachers and ICT teacher. We want to involve in the project as many children, parents and local authorities as possible. We won the title “The school is open to multiculturalism” and we are involved in the competition called “We are digitally secure school” in which children use English and ICT skills. We would like to implement research, innovation and ICT for presentation of a topic in a new project. We would also like to share knowledge with students from different countries and exchange information on different topics and we are open to almost every subject. We have very well- equipped Language and ICT labs at school that allows our students to communicate with partners involved in the project. What’s important that all our children learn English language from the age of 6. Most of them also learn German. Our school has a new, very well-equipped Science lab, a big gym, a modern playground with a sports field. All of these make our school possible to work on wide variety of topics and subjects. We are able to create a movie, a website, a blog, an e- book, an album or an app through which we would present our given subject to the others.
