Welcome!

The Swedish School is situated in Carcavelos, at the coastline between Lisbon and Cascais. Five minute walk to the beach and two minutes to the train station. Here we enjoy a calm neighborhood among beautiful gardens, we have a pool, playground and an outside ball court. The school is open for children between 3 and 12 years old

Preschool

The preschool is part of the Swedish School's operations and follows the Swedish curriculum for preschool (Lpfö98, revised 2011)

We accept children between 3-5 years and the activity runs Monday to Friday between 09.00 and 15.00, between 15.00 and 17.00 Free time is available together with the school children. The preschool is located on the ground floor of the school building, directly adjacent to the garden and playground.

During the preschool age, the child devotes his energy to learning to control his body, learning a language, social interaction, arranging and sorting experiences, and developing a symbolic language. Children are curious and full of discovery and eager to learn new things. The children's exploration promotes new knowledge and experiences and in play the children develop their social and emotional competence. The educators have an important role as role models and inspirers, and in order to meet the children's needs, we have a well-planned activity with varied educational activities and time for free play.

At preschool, the children are outside every day. Outdoor activities are an important part of our business as it enables the children to develop their motor skills and promotes health. Aesthetic forms of expression such as images, song and music are also important elements.

For us, it is important that the teaching follows the child and that we support the child in being able to do it themselves. It also means that we work with a mix of ages and see advantages in that, and that the preschool environment is seen as the third educator.

The day is scheduled with fixed times for gathering, activities, play and meals. Sometimes the whole group is together, but often the children are divided into smaller groups. This is so that the teaching can more easily meet the children's individual interests and needs.

In the Preschool class, the children who turn 6 attend the same academic year.

The students have acquired basic knowledge and attitudes from the preschool and here the F class now steps in to continue developing the children by taking advantage of their joy and curiosity to learn more.

The class is led by a class teacher who also has an extra teacher available. The style of learning remains very hands-on and play-based and the child's interest guides the themes we work in. Both outdoor and indoor environments are used to help create the broad foundation required to prepare for school. Here, the children learn both subject concepts, school rules, and the basics of reading and writing. We work to strengthen the self-esteem and the children's belief that they will be able to navigate their way in a challenging future.

The classes are divided into grades 2-3 and 4-6. The classes have about 20 children

Pedagogy and academic routines

The Swedish School in Lisbon operates a pedagogy that is based on a holistic approach to subjects and teaching. Teaching is based on LGR 11 with a focus on the best interests of the child and a holistic approach to subjects and teaching. As we have age-integrated classes, the child is met at the level where he is developmentally

The person who has the closest pedagogical responsibility for the student is the class teacher, and it is to him that the guardian turns with questions about the schooling. Every term, the student has development talks where goals are set for the children's learning. The conversation is held between the student, teacher and guardian. In the Year 1 development interviews, the targets are based on the Year 3 knowledge requirements and in Year 4 the targets are based on the Year 6 grading criteria.

We have specialist subject teachers in music, art, crafts, home economics, technology and sports.

We capitalize on each student's strengths and build our school on strong friendships, community and inclusion. The mix of the different ages provides a dynamic resource where everyone finds friends in and after school.

Our primary school aims to create a pleasant, safe and stimulating learning environment for everyone in the school. We are all committed to creating a course of study that promotes open-mindedness and the pursuit of lifelong learning.

Between 15:00 and 17:00, recreational staff are available to students at the school.

Leisure and school work towards the same goal and complement each other. During free time, we strive to develop the children's social and emotional competence. The staff work actively to ensure that the children work in groups and accept each other's differences. Both free, spontaneous and organized games develop children's ability to work together. Leisure time also gives the children the opportunity to use their creativity. There we can bake, paint, draw, sculpt, sew, build and make collages. Sometimes we use the craft room for carpentry or building. There is always the opportunity to play, play ball or just be. Fritids also has some projects, e.g. taking care of cultivation in the school yard. If the weather is nice, we like to swim in the pool.

Our chef Christian prepares the school meals with an open mind to different cultural elements and strives for the children to dare to try a variety of food. During lunch, a calm environment and food is kept. Already in pre-school, with support, pupils begin to put out their food themselves. We help the children pay attention to portion sizes to prevent food waste. All the children move away after each other. In grades 4-6 there are altering meal hosts who wipe the tables and set up for lunch.

At every lunch there is a vegetarian option and adapted dishes in case of allergies.

Once a week, a vegetarian dish is served to all students. Fish is served twice a week and meat twice. Vegetables are always available for lunch.

The aim is to buy locally produced food and always organic when possible. The snack is varied every day with, among other things, homemade bread, homemade smoothies, yogurt and cereal. Fruit is served several times a day to the children and staff.
