The implementation of „Go beyond!” project in Kornik Primary School no.1 will start in June 2016 and will have finished by the end of June 2018. Its title reflects aims assumed and the character of actions to be taken: going beyond all the limitations and barriers that derive from the imperfections of teachers’ qualifications and abilities, avoiding any international cooperation and turning inwards the closed local community. The project is also about going beyond ingrained education system in terms of approaching the teaching process, as well as integrating its content.The project is aimed at 4-6 grade students, their parents, English teachers and teachers of other subjects. Six teachers will take part in general English courses and teacher’s trainings:those whose command of English is at B1 level have chosen general English course in London (St. Giles International); they are Adam Prokopczuk (PE), Michal Dzielinski (Polish) and Katarzyna Szczepaniak (maths and IT);English teachers will improve their qualifications during following trainings: Ewa Kaleta – Current Trends Theory and Practice in English Language Teaching (IH London); Maria Ogonowska – Practical Teacher and Language Development Skills (IH London); Lukasz Remszel – Current Trends Theory and Practice in English Language Teaching (IH London). The aims of the project:1. Improvement of six teachers’ language skills within 12 months.2. Improvement of modern methodology skills within 18 months (this involves at least 75% of teaching staff).3. Development of basic and horizontal skills awareness within 18 months (this involves at least 50% of teaching staff).4. Creation of openness to differences within 12 months (this involves 1/3 of students).5. Inclusion of students at risk of social exclusions (at least 1/3 of students).6. Establishment of at least two international partnerships and joining e-Twinning programme.7. Reinforcement of the European dimension of the school.During the project implementation (24 months) following main actions will be taken:Workshops on promotion of Erasmus+ programme among the local community will be held,Trainings on e-Twinning will be conducted and several international projects will be engaged in via the above mentioned platform,During general educational classes and parent teacher meetings Europass and e-Twinning will be explained and promoted,Six teachers will take the mobility opportunities to train abroad,After they return, they will organise methodology workshops for the teaching staff of our and remaining local schools to multiply the project results,EU related events will be arranged,Pedagogical innovations will be prepared, CLIL will be implemented and teaching process will become multidisciplinary-oriented,The project will be promoted on school’s website, through social media and local paper,Actions taken will undergo an evaluation, reports will be submitted.“Go beyond!” project is composed of a number of minor tasks, which provide for giving scheduled and optional classes based on CLIL, cross-curricular and horizontal approaches to teaching process, writing scripts and giving performances, writing screenplays, making and showing movies, engaging in international projects and carrying out evaluation among all members of the school community.Results expected will relate to assumed aims and should come down to:Development of professional skills and tools, as well as improvement of attitudes of teachers involved in the project (those who are to take part in mobility and others),Making international contacts that will end with cooperation and joint actions,Increasing number of school and local community members interested in taking advantage of EU programmes,Giving the European dimension to the school, by its recognition among similar educational institutions across EU,Introducing CLIL and pedagogical innovations based on horizontal teaching process,Improvement of teaching quality and enrichment of educational offer,Promotion of lifelong learning among teachers and parents,Promotion of European tools for education (e.g. E-Twinning) and unity of vocational qualification (e.g. Europass) among school and local communities,Opening the school community up to cultural and linguistic diversity and difference,Introduction of modern approaches to both, project and school management.We assume these results will not be over when the project ends, but they will become firmly anchored in further actions.
