The Evangelical Basic School is part of the Evangelical Unified School. The school is attended by 280 students. The students are from different social and cultural backgrounds. 33 students are chidren with special needs. Whilst having a predominantly Christian focus, not all children are Christians. The main focus of the educational process is on developing the key competencies and education in accordance with Christian values. The key competences that are at the centre of curriculum are: the communication competencies, cognitive competencies, social competencies and ICT competencies. Two years ago the school moved to a new building with two ICT classrooms, a school auditorium, a multimedia classroom,a language classroom and a library. Many classrooms are equipped with whiteboards. From its beginning the school placed emphasis on a high quality of English education. Many of our students continue their studies at bilingual grammar schools. We try to follow current trends in teaching English as a foreign language. We consider CLIL as very suitable for our purposes and therefore we made it a part of our new school curriculum. As a school, we believe that teaching about faith and belief is crucial as it can play a part in promoting respect and sensitivity to the beliefs and values of others and it can also help children to recognise bias, prejudice and stereotypes. The staff is comprised of 23 teachers , a teaching assistant , a school psychologist and a school pastor.
