The school has an enrollment of 678 students divided into 27 groups, 9 of infant education and 18 of primary education.

The first criterion that conditions our school is the bilingual project. Since the foundation of the centre, we have had English as the vehicular language.

The second fundamental pillar of the school is the attention to diversity. It is one of our main objectives, given the high number of students with problems we have. For this, we have an attention team that works collegially and that together with the tutors set in motion an ambitious attention plan that during the last years is giving great results.

The third pillar of the centre’s operation is the school library, which constitutes not only an educational resource for the pupils, but also an inexhaustible source of resources for the teaching staff and also a backbone of the centre’s common activities.

We offer the second foreign language, Portuguese.

The faculty participates in Eramus plus KA-101 and Erasmus plus kA-219 programs and some eTwinning projects with other European countries.

Special mention should be made of the continuity of the classroom with specific attention to diversity, the autism classroom, also known as the specialised classroom, which has meant great possibilities for the centre. This classroom attends to autistic students, it is the interest of this centre to carry out inclusive policies where the classroom becomes an active resource of the centre and the integration of all its students in the activities of the centre is unquestionable, since among our signs of identity we contribute to the normalisation and inclusion of students with special educational needs.

This course will continue to work with eScholarium, with it ends to implement the use of new technologies in the classroom in a decisive and definitive way, integrating daily digital textbooks in that system

Professor Ivan Batakliev Lower Secondary School is a school in the town of Pazardzhik, Bulgaria. It is situated in the center of the town. It was established in 1897 as a Girls High School and is one of the oldest schools both in the town and the country. In 1989 it was declared an architectural monument. The school has got rich history and traditions, outstanding reputation and undisputed authority. Over the years its high educational, artistic and sports achievements have been proven through the realization in real life of its students.
At present 657 students, aged 7 to 14, study at the school. They are divided in two shifts and 25 classes. 5% of the students are from different origins – Turks, Syrians,Jews, Israelis, Roma. A director, two assistant directors and 45 highly-qualified and experienced teachers work in the school – teachers who have proven their professionalism and who use a great deal of ambition and creativity in the process of teaching. In order to democratize the school management we have also established a Student Council. It includes students from all classes. These students help in the organization of the extracurricular activities, school celebrations, charity campaigns, in the creation and realization of different projects. Active partner in the school life is the Parents’ Committee which was set up in 2007 registered as legal non-profit entity. Its main priorities are to support all school activities, to take part in the selection of textbooks, to cooperate in providing additional financial and material resources as well as to control their expedient spending, to assist in the realization of projects and the organization of different extracurricular activities. Every year the Parents’ Board awards students and teachers who have achieved high educational results. In 2016 a Public Council was established in our school as a public body to assist the development of the school and to ensure citizens’ control over its management. Its members are parents and a representative of the Municipality as the financial authority. This council has the right to approve the school strategy for development and the school curriculum plans, to give opinion on the projects and programs the school is working on as well as to offer policies and measures for improving the quality of the educational process. And last but not least since 2017/2018 academic year the school has been declared Innovative School by the Ministry of Education and Science.
The main objective of the teachers’ work and all school activities is to make school a desired territory for students, where they can experiment, do things in practice and take part in the teaching itself. Through the implementation of innovative teaching approaches and the effective teaching of the key competences of 21st century, the interaction between teachers and students is stronger and more motivating for high achievements. Every year our students take part and win prizes in different municipal, regional and national science, language and sports competitions.
As a result of the long-standing and effective work of generations of teachers striving for self-improvement and led by their ambition to educate individuals capable of creative and innovative thinking, students from Prof. Ivan Batakliev Lower Secondary School stand on key positions in the management of the town in the sphere of medicine, education, music and art.

THE FUTURE IS AT SCHOOL

One objective of the Erasmus+ Programme is to promote equity and inclusion for all. Our project idea sprang from our need to improve the motivation of students with socio-economic backgrounds, difficulties in learning, agressive behaviours in partner schools; students facing the risk of economic, social and cultural marginalization and of school early leaving, marginalization being one of the main reasons why they drop out of school: they feel that ‘education is not for them’, they have a feeling of not belonging in the educational system, a feeling of being inadequate.
For both children and adults, it is hard to focus on a topic for a long time during their education process. Long lesson periods distract their attention and block perception and long-term learning. Because of that reason, students following their lessons carefully and interestedly without getting bored and participating in the lesson actively are closely related with spending their break times effectively. In this context, it can be said that effectively spent break time is precondition of effective and long-term learning. With this project, we will try to show that the education process should not be limited by only the in-classroom activities. Education process should be perceived as a whole activity area and chain. We also aim to realize other countries’ different applications of break time activities as cooperative and innovative practices. At the same time, the colorful break time activities within the scope of the project address to all of the students from the bottom to the top in the academic spectrum. Also it is thought that students can satisfy their needs about playing game by both their well-known games of their country and the other games and activities of the participating countries that attract their attention. As a result, with this project we aim to enhance the power of struggle against the status of disadvantageous and debauchery; prevent early leavings from schools as turning the school/break times into center of attraction; and improve prosocial behaviors of our students with the help of colored break times.
Our project also focuses on the sharing of pedagogical and innovative learning approaches in particular areas of our shared curriculum, with emphasis given to the motivation in education. In line with the European Council recommendation of 28th June 2011 the reducing of early school leaving for a “smart growth” by improving education and training level aims for “inclusive growth” by reducing one of major risk factors for social exclusion.
