Friisilän koulu

Our school is a primary comprehensive school with grades 1-6. Pupils have 20-26 hours of classes per week depending on their grade. Classes are usually held in a specific classroom where the class teacher teaches most subjects. Our school has a language teacher for English and Swedish. Some of the methods to improve the social skills and participation Aggression Replacement Training (ART): is cognitive behavioral intervention focused on adolescents. It is a multimodal program that has three components; Social skills, Anger Control Training and Moral Reasoning. Pupil association:Pupils vote for a representative from each grade into the board of the school's student association. The board plans presentations and proposals, improves everyday life at school from the perspective of pupils, develops the pupils' possibilities to have an influence and improves the communal sprit of the school. General, intensified and special support for learning In addition to quality basic education, each pupil is entitled to sufficient guidance and support for learning and schooling. The forms of support include e.g. remedial teaching, part-time special needs education, simultaneous education, flexible grouping of teaching groups, differentiation of teaching and the contribution of a special needs assistant. Every pupil is entitled to general support during basic education. If this is not enough, the pupil receives comprehensive, long-term intensified support. The supportive measures of intensified support are more regular and can be combined. The pupil can also receive special support either in a special class, part-time special class or, if possible, in connection with other teaching. The organisation of education observes the pupil's best interests, learning potential and the special demands set for the learning environment. Pupils are also supported by interpretation and assistant services as well as special needs assistants in compliance with the Basic Education Act and the Services and Assistance for the Disabled Act. Pupil and student welfare is responsible for the physical, mental and social wellbeing of pupils and students aiming to identify the pupils' need for support as early as possible. The support is provided by a school social worker, a psychologist and School health care staff. The pupil welfare service are free of charge and confidential. It is organised in cooperation with parents and teachers. Guidance in studies and choices All teachers are responsible for guiding pupils in their studies. The guidance is particularly important when the pupil transfers to another school, is making choices concerning his/her studies and during joint applications. In our school the guidance is provided in connection with various subjects and other school activities. Learning new languages In our school compulsory foreign language for every pupil is English from the 3rd grade. Pupils are may also choose optional foreign language Swedish from the 4th grade. Education of linguistic and cultural groups The educational aim for different linguistic and cultural groups is to ensure that pupils obtain the skills and knowledge of comprehensive school and also a functional bilingualism including equal opportunities to pursue further studies. Pupils whose Finnish language skills are not at the mother tongue level study Finnish as a second language. After-school activities Pupils in 1st and 2nd grade as well as pupils in higher grades who are in need of special support can apply for supervised free-time activities after school. It is organised by a private entrepreneur in the school building and in the building beside the school. Afternoon activities are subject to a fee. Our school has various clubs at school after the school day (sports and exercise, music, handicrafts, theatre and performance and languages). The instructors are usually teachers or occasionally experts from outside the school.
