Educación Primaria Colegio El Porvenir

Primary Education

At this stage, we initiate comprehensive education in several key areas:

  • Curricular Knowledge
  • Social and Emotional Learning (which also includes the Botín Foundation’s Responsible Education Program and the "Together We Learn and Have Fun" project)
  • Cooperative Learning
  • Bilingual Education
  • Music Teaching
  • Curricular knowledge

We acquire skills and knowledge in oral expression and comprehension, reading, writing and arithmetic, as well as in social skills, study habits and efforts, critical and artistic awareness, creativity and emotions.

Social Skills and Values

The part of education which links academic knowledge with a set of social and personal skills, crucial for succeeding at school, personally and professionally, is called Social and Emotional Learning. It is the process by which students improve their ability to integrate thinking, feelings and behaviour to achieve their goals.

Our emotional development program increases academic success and has a preventive effect against adolescent problems.  It also encourages a responsible participation in a democratic society based on respect, tolerance and solidarity.

Cooperative learning

Cooperative Learning is a methodology that involves a greater motivation for learning because students are the primary agents of their own achievements and progress, thereby improving their own self-awareness and self-esteem.

Bilingual Education

Our path and development as a bilingual school is supported by more than 10 years of experience in teaching English, with excellent results certified by the University of Cambridge and a large staff of teachers trained and qualified for Bilingual Education.

We offer 50% of the school day in English and have the support of three native teachers in the role of language assistants.

Beginning academic year 2016-2017, the study of German as a foreign language starts from 6th grade of Primary.

We also offer the opportunity for our students in 6th grade to participate in a week-long course in Bournemouth, England.

Teaching Music

For a valuable contribution to the physical, emotional and intellectual development of the individual, an ambitious musical education is essential.

Our students follow a daily schedule of auditions and stories, designed specifically for the school and they also receive two weekly classes with the specialist teacher.
