Fourth Educational Innovation Day at Areteia School

On the 5th of March, Areteia School, part of the NACE Schools Group, will be celebrating the Fourth Educational Innovation Day: “Innovation in the approach to inclusion in schools”.
Areteia School is dedicating this fourth edition to innovation in the processes of identifying and responding to the different needs of pupils, to increase inclusion at school. Attention to diversity is the objective of the Areteia School Educational Project. For this reason, innovation when it comes to inclusion at school is one of the essential areas required for them to advance in their educational mission. Last year’s Educational Innovation Day was a complete success. With the title “From failure to success at school: maximising the pupils’ potential”, the 3rd Educational Innovation Day explored the issue of a lack of success at school and in particular, new guidance about how each pupil can achieve their own personal progress.

At this year’s event, Areteia School will welcome respected experts who will help us to understand the challenges involved in inclusive education. At the Fourth Educational Innovation Day, we will learn about how schools can ensure full inclusion with the help of researchers and professionals such as: D. Luis García Carretero, Headmaster of Colegio Areteia; D. Sergio González Andión, Managing Director of NACE Schools; D. Rafael Carbonell Peris, President of the Schools Board of the Autonomous Community of Madrid; and D. Gerardo Echeita, Committee for Inclusive Education at the Autonomous University of Madrid. In addition, a round table will be held with representatives from Full Inclusion Madrid, the Madrid Dyslexia Association, the Spanish Federation of ADHD Associations, the Madrid Asperger’s Association, and the Gifted World Foundation.

The pupils at Areteia School will also participate in this event. Over the course of the day they will present different projects about inclusion in schools in which they have collaborated with UNICEF, Más por ellos, the Isabel Gemio Foundation, Rainfer and the Protectora El Bosque.

Entry to the event is free of charge and attendees will also receive a certificate of attendance. However, as places are limited, you must reserve your place by sending an email to rosalia.gomez@areteia.edu.es. For more information, the full programme specifies the different conferences about what schools can do to favour the inclusion of each and every pupil.

The Fourth Educational Innovation Day is an event which defines the most important objective of Areteia School: educational innovation and the training of teachers. This is fundamental both for providing support for pupils with learning difficulties, and in our educational model.
Areteia School learns from and is committed to pupils’ education, accompanying and supporting them on their journey. That’s why there is a dedicated Educational Innovation Department which develops projects to enable the school to meet its objective: to create a context of success for every pupil, working on their weaknesses and encouraging their individual talents.
We hope to see you at the Fourth Educational Innovation Day, an opportunity to share advances in diversity and inclusion in schools which answers Areteia School’s educational objective: for pupils to make progress feeling good about themselves and others.
