Zespół Szkoły Podstawowej i Przedszkola w Czechach is a rural institution subordinate to theMunicipality of Zduńska Wola, but located on theborder of the city. Having a rich educational base,Orlik pitches, well-equipped rooms, we do notdiffer in any way in standards from city schoolsand kindergartens. The strengths of ourestablishment have led to a great deal of interestfrom children from outside the perimeter of ourschool and even the municipality.

Currently, 134 children attend the 6-department
kindergarten and 247 pupils attend the 14
departments of the school. There are 74 staff
members, including 50 teachers, most of whom
have attained the rank of certified teacher.
Teachers are constantly improving their skills and
obtaining new qualifications.

So far, we have participated in several national projects, e.g. with
WFOŚiGW in Łódź and cooperated with the Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw, but our eTwinning activities deserve special emphasis.
In 2019, a kindergarten teacher (currently an eTwinning ambassador)
won second place in the Our eTwinning Project competition in the
project category for students aged 3-6.

Our advantage is undoubtedly our experience in design work, as well as the use of elements of the Dalton Plan in the daily work of the facility. We constantly strive to ensure that the pillars of the Dalton Plan, i.e. independence, responsibility, cooperation and reflection, also become the basis for implementing tasks related to the Sustainable Development

Goals – SDG. We also place emphasis on shaping 4C Competencies –
creativity, coordination, communication and critical thinking, as
necessary in the world of tomorrow.

C.E.I.P Rodolfo Tomás Semper is located in the
town of Altet, created in 1978, specifically on the
outskirts of the urban center, close to the beach.
In the area close to the school are the municipal
library, a social centre, the sports centre and the
airport, which causes daily noise pollution due to
airplane traffic. Turning to the centre extends a
large arid and dry lot typical of the Mediterranean
climates.

Regarding the students’ families, they have a
medium socioeconomic level and a varied
sociocultural background. Their level of education
ranges from fathers and mothers with degrees to
others with basic studies, so the performance of
jobs is very different, both housewives, civil
servants, services (electricians, plumbers,
carpenters…) and some unemployed, due to the
current crisis situation.

At our educational centre there has also been a number of immigrant students, highlighting the South American and Moroccan ones. The majority of the students are born in Elche and we find mostly Spanish-
speaking families. For this reason, the centre works with a linguistic program. The school is organized and operates taking into account a
series of documents, such as center educational project and the
elements of the curriculum, the NOyF, the Coexistence Plan and the
Tutorial Action Plan, among others. There are two units per level in most courses and in other 3 units, due to the increase in students in recent years. We have 36 teachers, including specialists, supports and
educational psychologist. Regarding the physical situation of the center, it must be said that it consists of a pavilion with its respective
classrooms for each course, a large patio with different courts, a dining room and no specific classroom, since they have become tutorials. By listing and defining the identity notes, we express our position on issues of educational importance, on which there cannot be different interpretations. At our school, respect, freedom of thought, diversity of cultures and opportunities, solidarity, non-violent behavior and, above all, creativity and a critical spirit are encouraged. To achieve this we rely on active, participatory, comprehensive, individualized and democratic teaching.
