SUPPORT FOR TEACHERS - INCLUSION OF DISADVANTAGED PUPILS
The HeartDay project focuses on strengthening the practical skills of primary school teachers to work with pupils with special educational needs (especially pupils from different cultural backgrounds). The purpose of the project is to provide teachers with long-term support for the inclusion of these children in education.
Support for teachers consists of several activities to strengthen their practical skills and theoretical knowledge for inclusion in the classroom environment.
A one-day morning programme of physical and educational activities aimed at deepening relationships and cooperation between disadvantaged groups of pupils and their classmates.
Support from experts
Long-term monitoring of the involved schools and related support of experts (psychologist, special educator) in dealing with situations related to the inclusion of disadvantaged pupils.
Seminars and workshops
