Erasmus +

Erasmus + is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. Due to the effort of our International Schools Coordinator, Sue Chibber, our school has been awarded funding to carry out a two year research project with our partner school in Spain. The aim of our project has been to identify a key area of teaching that each school does best. This is then shared, developed and implemented across the other school. By the end of the two year project, STJOJ and CEIPSO will both have implemented new teaching strategies in their schools using innovative methods developed as a result of our collaboration on this research project.
The funding we have been awarded will allow teachers and pupils from both schools to visit one another and see first hand the effectiveness of each schools innovative teaching strategies. This will give those teachers who visit the knowledge, skills and confidence to share what they have learnt with their colleagues and develop ways together to effectively implement these new strategies into their own school.
