Memorandum for parents

The Memorandum is a handbook for the parents of our students. In it can be found information, details, and explanations about a child’s schooling and about daily routines and procedures.

Students in the Nursery-Primary and Secondary School cycles will be expected to follow the internal school rules, or Rules of Procedure. These are a series of rights and obligations that are discussed within the Educational Council. They are designed to ensure mutual respect among all members of the school community and allow for the smooth functioning of daily school operations.

SMS -MySchool : What is that?

This computer program dedicated to school management has been in use since the 2013- 2014 school year. This web portal is a complete school management system (SMS = School Management System) to which everyone in the school community (parents, students, teachers, administrative staff) has personal access.

This modern tool common to all schools enables effective email communication and provides access to system announcements on the home page. Parents can view their children’s schedules online. Student absences are also entered by the teachers at the start of lessons (except for school trips, sports classes, and so on...) and parents may view absences on the portal for the last 14 days.

Information regarding school life (parent-teacher evenings, events, trips, outings, and so on...) is posted on the portal and communicated by e-mail. It is therefore vital that parents consult the portal regularly. Parents should inform the school administration as soon as possible in case of a change of address, employer, email address, home phone number or service/office address by sending an email to the following addresses:

For the Nursery and Primary School: yolande.michaud@eursc.eu  / melanie.kistiaens@eursc.eu

For the Secondary School: blandine.thisserant@eursc.eu  / valentine.gillot@eursc.eu  / carine.sommen@eursc.eu

      Absences

      Read more

      Absence for health reasons

      When a child is unable to attend school for several days because of illness, parents or the legal representative of the child is requested to:

      For primary school and Nursery:

      inform the pedagogical secretariat before 9:00 (+352 273 224 -3002)

      For secondary school:

      inform the central switchboard of the school before 10:00 (+352 273224)

      Pupils who have been absent for more than two days must submit an excuse note accompanied by a medical certificate indicating the reason for their absence before they can return to their class. For an absence which does not require a medical certificate (i.e. an absence of less than three days) or which has not been previously authorized by the school, parents or the legal representative are requested to provide a written excuse indicating the reason of the absence, to be handed in by the pupil before returning to the class.

      Nursery and primary pupils should give this excuse to their class-teacher.

      Secondary pupils should either send the excuse by e-mail to the educational adviser of the year concerned or hand it in at the office of the educational advisers (A-201). If secondary pupils are not able for whatever reason to hand in a written excuse, they should inform the educational adviser of the year concerned before returning to the class (see the Rules for the Secondary School).

      Inability to attend the Physical Education lesson

      A pupil can be excused from gym classes or swimming courses only on the presentation of a medical certificate accompanied by a written request of the parents addressed to the Director. This dispensation allowed by the Management is limited to one term but is renewable upon production of a further certificate. The school may call for an opinion from the school doctor.

      Requests for permission to be absent from school

      Except in cases of duly certified illness, only the Head may give a child permission to be absent from school. Such permission should be asked by the parents or the legal representative in writing at least 8 days in advance by using the specific form, which is also available on the school website under Useful documents: http://www.eel2.eu/en/page/useful-documents

      It should clearly indicate the reasons for the request. In exceptional cases, the Head may authorize an absence but for a period of 2 days maximum.

      Parents' attention is particularly drawn to the fact that permission cannot be granted for additional free days in the weeks preceding or following a holiday period except for exceptional reasons as laid down in the general rules (A problem of transport/flight tickets is not considered as an exceptional case).

      In case of an absence during the week preceding or following a holiday period, a medical certificate will always be required, even for less than 3 days.

      A separate circular will be transmitted to parents of secondary pupils at the beginning of term concerning rules for absences during the school day.

      If a pupil in years 4-6 is absent from an examination, it is imperative that the parents contact the school on the day of the examination and a medical certificate issued by a doctor working in Luxembourg or its immediate surroundings must be submitted or sent to the school before the end of the examination period. The same rule applies for long tests and “prebacs” in years S4-S7.

      A) School Party: May 2019 (unknown date for the moment)

      In co-operation with the school, every year the Parents’ Association organizes a party, during which the school is open to everyone and various cultural, social and sports activities are organized. A barbecue and stands serving national specialties provide food and refreshments for everyone.

      B) Coffee Morning Networking

      Following this successful initiative of parents who wish to meet a few times a year in the new buildings of the European School Luxembourg II, to socialize, create a feeling of belonging and help each other out, we are happy to continue this activity in 2019/2020.

      School staff, members of the Parents’ Association APEEEL2, members of school Associations as “Mots de Zaza” or “Actions without Borders” and external speakers come to present their activities or offer themes of reflection in common (for instance Education, Respect, Bullying).

      If you have an independent activity (for example coach, interior architect, psychologist) or you wish to launch a project (for example book club, walking club, cooking club) you can come with your name cards and your brochures.

      The new committee members of the APEEEL2, Valentina Feci Favara and Vincent Masson Deblaize, joined the organization of the Coffee Morning Networking, by accepting to replace Danielle Ribs Fleishmann, which undertook a new personal project.

      We take advantage to thank her for her time, for her commitment and for her enthusiasm in the promotion and the organization of all the past CoMoNe, and we wish all the best for her new adventure.

      The timetable 2019-2020 will be communicated by SMS in September.

      The place is the STUDIO OF THE EUROPEAN SCHOOL LUXEMBOURG II

      The entry will be made by the ADMINISTRATION by simple presentation of an invitation.

      According to the wishes of some parents, the CoMoNe will be organized in the morning (08.30am to 10.30am) AND in the evening (schedule to be still decided).

      The new organizers of the CoMoNe wish to give a new impetus by proposing every time a different theme touching the sphere of our children.

      For any question, you can contact directly the APEEEL2 (office@apeeel2.lu): your message will be immediately transmitted to the organizers of the CoMoNe.

      Nursery and Primary Classes

      A) Parents’ Evenings

      At the start of the school year, an informational evening is organized for each class. Parents will be able to have necessary information about the working of their child’s class and about school more generally and meet some of the other families.

      In November and during the 2nd trimester, individual conferences are planned with the Nursery teachers as a chance to discuss the work and progress of each child.

      Please see the above chart labelled « Parent-Teacher Meetings».

      B) Class Representatives and Parents Association APEEEL2

      Early in the year, each class will elect two parent representatives who will act as liaisons between the class and the administration. They will be able to communicate any needs or problems the class may have to the teachers and to the school.

      The Parents’ Association represents the needs of the greater parent community. It is actively involved in school life and is able to communicate any needs or concerns that affect the general school body, the school buildings, and the daily life of the school. More information can be found on their website: http://www.apeeel2.lu/

      L’APEEE also organizes extracurricular activities. More information about these activities can be found on the website: https://periscolaire.apeeel2.lu

      1. Parents’ Cooperation and Participation

      In addition to attending the scheduled meetings, parents are often invited to help the classes during specific events. This participation might include helping to chaperone field trips, helping with class parties or other events, accompanying the children to the library, or, starting in M2, accompanying the children to swim class. Teachers also rely on the goodwill of the parents to help foster a smoothly running classroom and a positive class atmosphere.

      1. Parents’ Financial Contributions

      School Trips: The cost of specific school trips will be announced well in advance. More information can be found under the heading «School Trips».

      Class Funds: The school allocates funds each year for the purchase of small school supplies and educational materials.

      Periodically throughout the year, the Nursery and Primary Classes may organize school activities that would require additional financial participation from the families. Instead of collecting money for each occasion, the families may decide to organize a class fund. This fund would be managed by a class treasurer to be chosen at the first school meeting. During that meeting, parents could also decide the amount each family would be asked to contribute based on suggestions from the teachers. Teachers would not have direct access to the class fund but would rely on the class parents and treasurer to decide on how the money should be spent.

      1. Library

      The Nursery Library contains books and materials for all the Nursery language sections while the Primary Library contains books and materials for all the Primary language sections. Classroom teachers work with the librarians to keep families informed about how to use and take advantage of these resources.

      Running the libraries would not be possible without the assistance of parent volunteers and their association «Les Mots de Zaza». The school sends out an urgent call to all parents who have some free time and would like to help by joining the volunteer association. The school librarians (who work only half-time) would be happy to help put any interested parents in touch with the «Les Mots de Zaza» association.

      Homework and school report

      Read more

      Homework

      A) Primary school

      Homework can take several forms. It is necessary to consider the capability of the children and their level of learning. The teachers will have to determine the homework suited to their pupils.

      4th and 5th grades represent a significant stage in progress through the secondary cycle in experience and knowledge and consequently homework will become more regular and targeted.

      It is important to underline that each linguistic section has specific characteristics and particularities being part of the educational tradition of each country. Therefore, it is impossible to determine a valid rule for all the classes and all linguistic sections.

      Teachers do not systematically mark homework because it is not necessarily personal research and educational background can vary from one family to another.

      Nevertheless, homework assignments are always corrected.

      Under the School website, more detailed information per linguistic section are available.

      B) Secondary school

      As guideline, the following figures represent the maximum time per week for an average pupil:

      16

       

      If it appears that these figures are not realistic for a certain class or group of pupils, these cases must be examined individually.

      Homework should be assigned as early as possible and the deadline should be fixed together with the pupils. Homework given for the following day should not exceed 15 minutes.

      For the 2019-2020 academic year, the teachers of each subject agreed on the application of a common policy of homework. This policy will be evaluated at the end of the school year and, where appropriate, adapted.

      The calendar for long tests from S1 à S5 is published at the beginning of the academic year on the school website. A maximum of 3 long tests per week is permitted.

      Second Report

      July 2020

      During the parent/teacher evenings at the beginning of the school year, the teachers responsible for the class and the LII teachers explain the system of the school report in terms of skills and strategies used for the evaluations and review the cross-curricular skills.

      School report evaluation is therefore not a way of classifying the children (based on the skill to reproduce the acquired knowledge), but it concerns the way they use their knowledge and how they apply it to their individual work (application of the skills).

      In November, the parents will meet individually with the class teacher to discuss the child’s progress in their work, cross-curricular and social skills. The list of the skills serves as a guide for this meeting. If serious problems are raised, it is recommended that they should be discussed with the class teachers and with the Deputy- Director.

      A first written report is sent to the parents in February through our ICT data exchange platform (Student Management System SMS, My School). This report has already been discussed with the pupil. It contains a complete list of the cross-curricular skills and the specific skills for every subject. The teachers also record on the school report their individual remarks.

      In April or May, the primary school will inform the parents by registered letter if there is a risk that the child will repeat the school year. At this point, it is still possible to try to remedy the situation. This letter does not establish a definitive decision but aims at informing the parents of the concrete risk of repeating.

      At the end of the year, the same skills are revised during the class council to evaluate the progress of the pupil. A final page summarizes all the information, with an explanation on the decision of the class council for the following school year. The final report is made available to parents through our platform SMS.

      It is important that each family maintains a correct and current email address for their account on our platform «My School».

      Support

      There are three types of support at the European Schools:

      • General Support,
      • Moderate Support,
      • Intensive Support (A and B).

      General and Moderate support:

      • General Support is for any pupil who, at some point in their schooling, needs support or may experience difficulty in a particular aspect of a subject, may need to ‘catch up’ due to late arrival in school or illness or may be working in their non-mother tongue. Pupils may need additional help with acquiring effective learning strategies or study skills.
      • Moderate Support is an extension of General Support and is provided to pupils with a mild learning difficulty or in need of more targeted support. This could be appropriate for pupils who may be experiencing considerable difficulty in accessing the curriculum due to, for example, language issues, concentration problems or other reasons. It is provided for a longer period than General Support.

      Procedures:

      • Teachers request General or Moderate Support for their pupils. Parents or legal representatives can discuss with the subject teacher if they think support is needed.
      • Support classes may be requested at any time during the school year.
      • Applications must be submitted using a special form that is distributed to all teachers by mail and is available in the teacher’s room or in Office 365 (shared documents). This form must be submitted to the Support Coordinator (SupCo).
      • The Administration of the school will decide when support is necessary. The teacher will inform parents that support has been decided for their child. Parents can accept or reject this support, but in all cases the form must be returned to the school with the parents’ signature.
      • The Support Coordinator will create support groups. Under exceptional circumstances, general and moderate support can be offered to a pupil on a one-to one basis.
      • Groups are organized vertically, horizontally, within or across sections, by focusing on the needs of the pupils concerned.
      • Once a pupil has been admitted to a support course, the pupil is required to follow the course regularly. If a pupil refuses this course or if s/he disrupts the course by his/her behaviour, the SupCo must be notified and the pupil may be excluded from the support course.
      • The General Support Teacher prepares the Group Learning Plan (GLP) with the subject / classroom teacher who details the group's work and incorporates objectives and success criteria for the group. This Plan is available from the SupCo and is sent to parents.
      • The moderate support teacher and the subject teacher make the Individual Learning Plan (ILP) (which is available from the SupCo and sent to the parents for each pupil) in consultation with the teacher of the subject / class. The ILP should be reviewed regularly. It includes specific learning objectives and criteria for evaluating a pupil’s progress and the success of the support.
      • Parents are informed about the evaluation in the end of the support period or in the end of Semesters.

      Intensive support A and B

      Definitions:

      • Intensive Support A (ISA) is provided following an expert’s assessment of the pupil’s special individual needs and the signing of an agreement between the Director and the parents. Intensive Support A is provided for pupils with specific educational needs: learning, emotional, behavioural or physical needs.
      • Intensive Support B (ISB): In exceptional circumstances, and on a short-term basis only, a Director may decide to provide Intensive Support for a pupil without special educational needs, for example in the form of intensive language support for a pupil who is unable to access the curriculum.

      For the secondary, a pupil’s absence from other lessons while receiving educational support should be restricted as far as feasibly possible to exceptional cases.

      Procedures

      For pupils whose needs are best described using description A:

      • The needs of Intensive support can be detected already at the enrolment or during the year, either by a teacher or by the legal representatives.
      • A written request is sent to the SupCo by a teacher or the legal representatives including a report from a specialist.
      • The SupCo contacts the parents to arrange an Advisory Group Meeting. The Advisory Group meets to discuss how to help the pupil in the best possible way and advises the director on the arrangements to be made.
      • People present at the Advisory Group Meeting: Head or his/her delegate, Support Coordinator, L1 teacher, form teacher and the pupil’s parents. Other teachers and the psychologist or other specialists can be invited as well.
      • The support coordinator is in charge of preparing the Intensive Support agreement, which should be signed by the Head of the school and the legal representatives.
      • The ILP must be established by the support teacher(s) in consultation with the subject teacher and/or the support coordinator.
      • The legal representatives of the pupil are informed of their child’s progress at the end of each semester.
      • The Intensive Support agreement is only applicable for one school year and an Advisory Group Meeting will be organized to arrange a follow up and evaluate the intensive support.
      • An Advisory Group Meeting can be held any time during the school year if needed. The Intensive Support agreement can also be adapted during the school year if needed.
      • When the school is not able to provide adequate education to a pupil, the whole pedagogical team, parents and the school management seek and propose alternatives more adapted to the needs of the pupils.

      For pupils whose needs are best described using description B :

      • Teachers or pupil’s legal representatives request short-term Intensive Support B for the pupil in writing to the support coordinator.
      • The pupil’s legal representatives are informed that this support has been recommended for their child.
      • The Director and pupil’s legal representatives sign an agreement stating the reasons, nature and length of the Intensive Support to be given.
      • The support coordinator creates small groups or organizes individual support, in or outside the classroom, depending on the pupil’s needs and the availability of teachers.
      • Groups are organized vertically, horizontally, within or across sections, by focusing on the needs of the pupils concerned.
      • The support teachers write an ILP for each pupil in cooperation with the subject teacher. This should be evaluated in the end of each semester or trimester.
      • The ILP includes specific learning objectives and criteria for evaluating the pupils’ progress and the success of the support.
      • Pupils’ legal representatives are informed of their child’s progress in Intensive Support B at the end of each semester.

      SWALS Students (Students without a Language Section) enrolled in the other sections (EN, FR, DE) can receive additional help if necessary in case of weaknesses in language 2.

      Support coordinators « SupCo » :

      Mrs Paola Cuzziol for the Primary school: paola.cuzziol@teacher.eursc.eu

      Mrs Charlotte HENRIKSEN for the Secondary school: charlotte.henriksen@eursc.eu

      Therapists – tripartite agreement

      There might be pupils whose development and learning needs require support given by paramedical auxiliary staff (essentially speech therapists and psycho-motor therapists). The provision is based on a tripartite agreement.

      The school’s role is to make a suitable room available to the pupil and the professional whose services are used, to agree on a timetable and to take account of class activities.

      Paramedical auxiliary staff is self-employed and paid directly by the parents.

      Transitions

      A) Transition from Nursery to Primary

      Each language section organizes two "Transition" days for all MA2 pupils: a P1 visit from the M2 children and a visit to the Mat by the P1 children before the end of the year. Special visits can be organized for pupils with special needs.

      For the children of M2 receiving intensive support A, the support coordinator of the primary / nursery cycle organises, at the end of the school year, an Advisory Group specifically dedicated to the planning of the transition to the primary cycle.

      B) Transition from Primary to Secondary

      The school organizes a transition day for all P5 pupils. Special visits/arrangements can be arranged for pupils with special needs.

      Transition meetings for P5 and S1 teachers take place before and at the beginning of the school year.

      There is a close collaboration between the support coordinator of Nursery/Primary and the support coordinator of Secondary. The support coordinator of Primary organizes at the end of the school year the Advisory Group Meeting for pupils in P5 receiving Intensive Support A. At these meetings the transition is discussed among the colleagues, parents and support coordinators from both cycles. For ISA pupils, another follow-up Advisory Group meeting is organized in October/November when the pupil enters S1.

      The support coordinator from Secondary attends the Class Councils for P5 at the end of the school year.

      Assessment and promotion

      Principles for assessment and promotion

      For the assessment and promotion of pupils receiving educational support but following a complete curriculum according to full requirements, the provisions in Chapter IX of the General Rules of the European Schools will apply.

       If the curriculum and/or syllabus are modified to meet the needs of the pupil (Who did not follow the curriculum provided in the Syllabus of the European Schools), he or she may not be promoted in the usual way. The pupil may accompany his or her class, as long as this is beneficial to the pupil’s social and academic development.

      It is possible for pupils to return to the full curriculum if all requirements for promotion are fulfilled. Before re-enrolment in the standard curriculum, the pupil must perform at the same level as any other pupil.

      S5 Pupils must follow the full curriculum and fulfil the same criteria as all pupils in order to be promoted to S6.

      If a pupil’s curriculum is adapted in S6, it is not possible to resume the standard curriculum either during S6 or between S6 and S7. Any pupil entering for the European Baccalaureate must have completed the full curriculum (General Rules, Chapter IV).

      The European Schools will issue a School Report, which describes the subjects followed, and the level of the pupil’s attainment.

      Read more

      European Baccalaureate

      The European Schools believe that all pupils should be allowed to demonstrate their ability under assessment conditions that are as fair as possible. Where standard assessment conditions could place a candidate particularly those with special educational needs at a disadvantage, preventing them from demonstrating their level of attainment, special arrangements for written and/or oral examinations may be requested and authorized (see document 2012-05-D-15-en-8). This authorization must be requested by October 15th when the pupil is in S5. These arrangements are not intended to compensate for any lack of knowledge or ability.

      Peer mediation

      This is a process where volunteer pupils facilitate resolving interpersonal problems of other pupils within the school community in a climate of neutrality and confidence.

      The aim of the process is:

      • To lead discussions towards a win-win resolution for both sides to avoid further trouble;
      • To help pupils modify and improve their handling of situations of conflict in a nonviolent manner. In this way, their own self-esteem will grow, as will their listening skills and ability to handle difficult situations.
      • To improve the overall climate in school and to reduce disciplinary actions and disputes within school.
      • The positive outcome for teachers is to have more time available for teaching.

      Peer mediation is led by about 35 pupils of years S4-S6 who followed a comprehensive training program and received a mediator’s diploma.

      The pupils are supported by a team of enthusiastic teachers and coaches having followed part of the training of M.E.N.J.E. - S.C.R.I.P.T of Luxembourg for mediation projects by peers in Luxembourgish schools. The reference persons are Mr Nestoras, Mrs Le Goaller and Mrs Pomar.

      KiVa program

      KiVa is an innovative school-based anti-bullying program which has been developed at the University of Turku in Finland. It is a tool our school uses to raise the awareness of our students to be respectful, to show empathy towards peers, to know more about themselves … In this way school tries to create a safe environment through their whole school career.

      The main components of KiVa

      KiVa includes both universal and indicated actions, intended to prevent the phenomenon and to treat the cases of bullying in our school.

      The universal actions, such as the KiVa curriculum (student lessons), are directed at all students and focus mainly on preventing bullying. The students of year 1 continue with the lessons which started already in Primary (unit 2) and the students of year 3 start with the lessons dedicated to secondary (unit 3). They consist of a number of initiatives which influence the norms of groups, teach children how to behave constructively/responsibly, refrain from encouraging bullying and help possible victims.

      The indicated actions take place when bullying has come to the attention of school personnel. Each particular case is handled in a series of individual and group discussions between the school’s KiVa team and the students involved. Several peers of the victim are challenged to provide support for the victimized classmate. The aim is to put an end to bullying.

      The KiVa team doesn’t accuse or punish anyone but helps to develop empathy and positive solutions. KiVa is not meant to be a one-year project, but a permanent part of the school’s anti-bullying work.

      You can contact the KiVa team:

      Primary: MAM-KIVATEAM-PRI@eursc.eu

      Choice of subjects Primary

      Choice of the second language

      At the European School, a child must take courses in a second language as from the year 1 in Primary in the form of one lesson a day. This second language will accompany the pupil through the schooling until the Baccalaureate. This language will be the teaching language for the courses of human sciences, history, geography and economy in the years 3, 4 and 5 of the Secondary School. A change in the choice of the second language is normally not allowed except on entry to year 6 of the Secondary School.

      For further information, please refer to the General Rules of the European Schools.

      The second languages (vehicular languages) taught are: ENGLISH - FRENCH - GERMAN

      If the child is in the:

      • German section: the available choices are English or French (except for SWALS)
      • English section: the available choices are French or German (except for SWALS)
      • French section: the available choices are English or German (except for SWALS)
      • Danish section: the available choices are English, French or German
      • Greek section: the available choices are English, French or German
      • Italian section: the available choices are English, French or German
      • Czech section: the available choices are English, French or German
      • Hungarian section: the available choices are English, French or German

      The children with Croatian, Slovak, Slovene and Romanian nationality are considered as students without language section (SWALS) and they are enrolled in the French, English or German section. The language of the section chosen is the pupil’s second language.

      The school organizes mother tongue courses for all SWALS pupils provided that a duly qualified teacher is available, or that the school can recruit one. These courses take place during the L2 time and are compulsory.

      Before taking a decision, please read carefully the following points:

      The General Rules do not foresee a change of the second language, whatever the reason.

      Normally, no changes are envisaged in language choices. Should a change of a language at any age or level be requested, the decision lies with the Director and is subject to the following conditions:

      • The existence of a duly justified written request from the parents/guardians, or from the pupil himself/herself if over the age of 18.
      • An unanimous deliberation and judgement by the class council on the request.
      • A clear proof established by the School of the pupil’s ability to follow the requested course.
      • The absence of administrative obstacles related to the change requested.
      • The applicant will be notified of the decision and the reasons for it.

      We recommend avoiding choosing a second language that would actually be the child’s 3rd language (additional work, interference between the 3 languages, possible psychological effects).

      The choice of the second language has a main impact on the child’s education throughout the schooling and becomes the vehicular language of certain subjects in the secondary cycle.

      Choice of religion or non-denominational moral classes

      All the children of the European School are obliged to follow religion or nondenominational Moral classes organized by the school. In our school the possible options for religious instruction are:

      • Catholic
      • Protestant
      • Orthodox

      (Other options could be available if pupil numbers suffice and according to the rules of groups as described by the General regulations of the European Schools.)

      These choices are not always available in all language sections. These options could be also be taught in the vehicular language of the pupils from the level P3.

      A request to change from one religion or ethics class to another must be highly motivated and addressed to the Direction of the school by April 30thfor the following school year.

      No change will be accepted after this date.

      For the P3-4-5 classes in the Czech and Hungarian sections, religion and moral courses are taught in the pupils’ second language.

      Subject choices 1st, 2nd, 3rd year in secondary cycle

      This is a very brief guide and should not be regarded as definitive. In case of any doubt, the school will always apply the General rules of the European Schools.

      All choices must be made by the end of February of the preceding school year. Please note the deadline on the choice form for your child’s class. It can be different from year to year.

      Year 1

      There is one new choice: L3 (DE, EN, FR, ES, IT) 2 periods. L3 in S1 is a beginners’ course. The third language must be continued to the end of year 5 and can be taken to the Baccalaureate level in case there is a sufficient number (5) of pupils who choose it. (NB!. This is often the last possibility to choose a course in English).

      The following choices may be modified: religion/ethics, ONL, Irish (Irish nationals in the English Section only), ONL Maltese (Maltese nationals in the English section only). Students whose L1 is Greek may request to take the Ancient Greek course which is guaranteed until the end of year 5.

      ONL = Other National Language for categories I and II

      Year 2

      Upon entry into S2, pupils will be able to choose a Latin option of 2 periods a week. If this option is chosen it shall be kept up to the end of the cycle that is until the end of S3. This option is not compulsory. For creating a course, a minimum of 7 pupils is required.

      Greek pupils in the Greek section can choose an extra course in Ancient Greek, which is guaranteed until the end of year 5.

      The only courses that can be modified are religion/ethics and the complementary courses of Irish and Maltese.

      Year 3

      • Latin as a 2-period option course chosen in S2 will continue in S3 and will be kept until the end of S3 It is possible to choose ICT as a 2-period option in S3 only in case your child has not chosen Latin in S2.

      The continuity of the course in the older years above is guaranteed provided that enough pupils have chosen the course. This option is not compulsory.

      • Drop Latin and choose ICT in S3 is not possible. It is not possible to choose Latin and ICT at the same time.

      NB! All pupils will be able to choose ICT as an option in S4, irrespective of their choice of Latin.

      • Music and Art are compulsory courses until the end of S3.

      They may be chosen as options in year 4, or even year 6, without having been studied in year 3 provided the pupil can demonstrate enough knowledge of the topic.

      The only courses that can be modified are religion/ethics and the complementary courses of Irish and Maltese.

      The Religion and Ethics courses are taught in L2.

      Subject choices 4th, 5th year in secondary cycle

      An information evening is organized for parents and a detailed information booklet is distributed. Mathematics can be chosen at the 4 or 6 period level. This choice may well affect later choices (math and sciences in the 6th year, university courses….).

      With the agreement of the Director and the class council it is possible to drop from 6 to 4 period Mathematics before the end of the first semester of year 4 or at the end of the 4th year only. A passage from Math 4 to Math 6 is only possible in exceptional cases, subject to passing a level test.

      The following optional courses can be chosen: Latin, Greek (beginners), Economics (in language 2), Language 4 (beginners, any official language of the European Union depending on the availability of a teacher), Art, Music, and ICT. (These last three subjects if possible in LII). The courses of religion and moral are taught in L2.

      For pupils of Irish or Maltese nationality, an ONL course in Irish or Maltese can replace the option of L 4.

      The optional subject courses, except ONL, are opened only if a sufficient number of pupils opt for them (normally 7) however they might not be guaranteed beyond year 5 in case the number of pupils is not sufficient to open the courses (5 pupils) in year 6.

      The total number of periods studied must lie between 31 and 35 (if Math 4 chosen) or 33 and 35 (if Math 6 chosen). In exceptional cases, more than 35 periods might be allowed by the Management.

      Apart from the change in Mathematics mentioned above or possibly a change of religion/ethics, a change of subjects is not allowed either during the 4th and 5th year, or between the two years.

      Read more

      Subject choices 6th, 7th year in secondary cycle

      At this stage, the choice becomes complicated and meetings are organized separately for pupils and parents. Moreover, S5 pupils receive a booklet through SMS with detailed information at the end of December. It is not possible to give a comprehensive description of the curriculum, but there are a few hints.

      Subjects are grouped into categories: compulsory, optional, advanced and complementary.

      The optional and complementary courses are created only when the sufficient number of pupils opt for them. Organisational constraints have to be taken into consideration as well.

      Some subjects must have been started in S3 or S4 if they are to be taken at this stage. These are Latin, Greek, Economics and Language 4. Art, Music and ICT also require strong bases, acquired in school or outside.

      It is clearly important to consider future University courses and careers in making the 6th year choice. Many member states send professional career advisors to the school in due time.

      General points

      In order to succeed in the higher years of the secondary school, a high level in Language 2 (the “working language”) must be reached. As from year 1, it is used for every possible opportunity in Art, Music, ICT and Physical education. It is used as a language of tuition as from year 3 in Human Science and in Religion (year 3), from year 4 in Economics, History and Geography. If we cannot create an option which is normally taught in the mother tongue because of the lack of pupils (in years 6 and 7) or because of timetable constraints, we shall try to offer pupils the possibility of having the subject in their working language.

      Changes in subjects studied

      All requests for changes of subjects must be made to the Mr Belpaume (Curriculum Coordinator) by end of May of the preceding year.

      A change in religion/ethics must always be requested by the end of the previous school year (before April 30).

      School trips secondary

      School trips are an inherent part of the school program and are therefore compulsory. A child can be excused from a school trip only on medical grounds. The request must be made to the Director of the School and justified by the delivery of a medical certificate.

      Parents bear the responsibility for subscribing cancellation insurance.

      In case a child becomes ill during a school trip, the legal guardian of the child has to pay the medical costs incurred during the school trip.

      In case of financial difficulties, families can contact the school administration and the Parents’ Association to ask for a contribution to the travel costs (check social fund below).

      2) Major applications: Applications for registration which require a minimum of 4 working periods, resulting in an additional cost of 260 €.

      Policy for Language 2 teaching

      Official referral documents:

      Curriculum - Langue Deux - Second Language - Zweite Sprache

      Revision of the Decisions of the Board of Governors concerning the organisation of studies and courses in the European Schools

      The purpose of this page is to briefly explain the objectives and organisation of Language 2 teaching (German, English, French) within the Primary cycle of the European School of Luxembourg 2.

      The specific programs of each Language 2 are available on the official website of the European Schools.

      Read more

      Classes organisation

      Students from P1 to P5 benefit from a daily Language 2 period, equivalent to 5 periods over the week.

      The periods are 30 minutes/day for P1 and P2, and 45 minutes/day for P3, P4 and P5.

      P2 to P5 begin Language 2 classes during the second week of the new school year while P1 begin during the first week of October.

      Read more

      Pedagogical choice: Controlled heterogeneity

      P1 and P2 are heterogeneous groups. The goal is to optimize the teaching of Language 2 for all students, regardless of their school and preschool background and family context.

      P3, P4 and P5 are also organized in a heterogeneous way with the following nuance: the majority of the pupils follow the "Mainstream" groups, however support groups can be organised, with reduced numbers if possible, for pupils presenting higher levels of difficulty. These groups are formed according to observation and assessment conducted by the teachers of Language 2. The parents of the students concerned are always informed.

      At the end of the first semester and upon the recommendation of the teachers of Language 2, a change of group may be required for a student (for example: moving from the support group to the Mainstream or vice versa).

      Beginner students joining our school in P3, P4 or P5 will benefit from a system of remedial classes organized during school time.

      This organization applies to all 3 languages 2.

      Numbers

      The regulations of the European Schools require the formation of groups of maximum 25 pupils.

      Didactic principles

      The principles followed by the teachers are based on the recommendations of the programs specific to each language 2 as well as on the document 2012-08-D-13-en-2:

      « Language learning is part of a holistic process involving all the senses. Pupils should be enabled to use language in context through project-based enquiry.

      Planning for teaching and learning in Language II must take into account the prior skills, knowledge and requirements of the learners. Teachers must also be cognisant of research and development in terms of language acquisition, as outlined in the "Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: learning, teaching and assessment". The Joint Language II Curriculum is based on a dynamic concept of continuous competence building.

      The L II curriculum is based on a dynamic model of teaching and learning. The teacher should create a motivational, stimulating learning background through an activity-based and thought-provoking learning environment, including the modelling and scaffolding of new learning and careful monitoring of the progress each pupil is making. The learner must be an active participant, aware of his/her learning processes and adopt an active role in this process. »

      Lockers

      Every student is required to have a locker in the secondary school. This is the only place where personal belongings can be locked up. Please note that the school cannot be held responsible for loss or damage to students´ property. A non-reimbursable service charge of 7.50 € is payable for each student. Students are not allowed to share the same locker.

      At the beginning of the school year, a locker number will be allocated to each student. Students must bring their own padlock with key and place it by the end of the 2nd week. If the key is lost, the caretaker will not be able to cut oversized padlocks.

      The school management may check the contents of the lockers (in the presence of the owner), in the interests of hygiene and of security. The access hours to the lockers will be communicated by means of posters.

      Badges

      Every year, all students in the secondary cycle receive an identification badge on which the timetable and the various exit authorisations are indicated by a distinctive colour or letter. This badge must be shown at the request of any management or teaching staff member, including school security staff (guards).

       All students must demonstrate their badges while entering and leaving school in order to assert their rights of passage. The school management has instructed the security guards to monitor the indicated authorizations. If inconsistencies occur, the student will be referred to the counsellor's office for further data clarification and validation.

      As a reminder, the holding of a badge does not in itself constitute a right to use the site's accesses and exits or a right of circulation beyond the areas assigned to the secondary cycle.

      The cost of this badge (2 €) will be charged to parents.

      Any application for renewal of the card (for removal reasons, loss or theft) will incur a charge of 5 € per card. This amount is payable in cash upon submission of the application at the reception of the administrative building.

      School’s medical service

      The school has a medical service.

      The main activity of this service consists of a monitoring:

      • of the medical check-ups and 
      • of the pupils' medical records. 

      The opening hours of the school's medical service correspond to the class hours of the school cycle concerned. 

      The school's medical service does not conduct medical consultations. If the pupil's state of health so requires, these consultations must be carried out by the pupil's attending physician. Parents are asked not to send sick pupils to school. Any pupils who show up ill at school should be picked up by their parents/guardian as soon as possible.

      No medication will be administered without a medical prescription issued by the pupil's attending physician and made available to the medical service or as part of an individualised support plan (P.A.I.) provided to the school through the Ministry of Health.

      The school's equipment and medical supplies (wheelchairs, crutches, bandages, cold packs, etc.) are intended for internal use only. For example, if your child needs a wheelchair for school use, even for a limited period, please consult your child's attending physician.

      The School, the CPE and all other childcare facilities are different entities that do not share medical information and/or medicines.

      1.  Medical check-up and record 

      The frequency of medical check-ups for each cycle is as follows:

      • Pupils in the nursery and primary cycles attend a medical check-up every two years.
      • Secondary students go to the medical examination in S2, S4 and S6. 

      As far as medical records are concerned:

      • The medical service does not accept the original of the vaccination card and declines all responsibility in case of loss.
      • No copy of the vaccination card will be issued by the medical service.
      • When a pupil/student leaves school, parents are asked to collect the medical school record from the medical service. 
      1.  Care and support 

      The school's medical service will handle:

      • accidents at school;
      • illnesses that have occurred in school;
      • medical processing as part of an individualised support plan (P.A.I.);
      • occasional medical treatments under the condition that a medical prescription is available.

      The school's medical service will not handle: 

      • the acceptance and administration of any medical treatments without the provision of a medical prescription;
      • medical processing of medical issues that have occurred or appeared outside the school environment (e.g. at home, during the weekend, etc.);
      • any administrative or medical follow-up such as checking the student's state of health (especially for symptoms that have occurred at home), writing excuses for sports or extracurricular activities, etc.

      It should be noted that the school's medical service ensures emergency "care", but no medical follow-up. When a pupil's state of health indicates that it is not in the pupil's interest to remain in school, the pupil must be taken over from school as soon as possible by the parent/guardian. 

      Finally, it should be made clear that nursery and primary pupils cannot have medication in their schoolbags.

      Accidents

      If an accident occurs, the school reserves the right to request assistance from the emergency and response services. In this case, the care and transport of the pupils to the on-call hospital unit is entrusted and provided through ambulance attendants.

      Parents/guardians are notified by phone:

      • of the accident;
      • of the handling (care provided);
      • any possible follow-up on their behalf (concerning health status or accident declarations);
      • the location to which their child has been transferred (as a result of an ambulance intervention).

      An accident declaration is drawn up for accidents occurring within the school. Accidents occurring during the transport or at school must be reported to the school's medical service within 3 days in order to ensure administrative follow-up. The school will not declare any accident reported after these deadlines.

      Notifiable (contagious) diseases

      The medical service is not conducting any medical diagnosis. This must be done externally to the school.

      If a child contracts a reportable or contagious disease, parents must immediately notify the school and respect the rules of school eviction as indicated in the medical certificate.

      No information about the infected pupil or the circumstances of the infection will be communicated outside the school's medical service and the administrative staff directly concerned. 

      The school will only communicate internally upon request or recommendation from the Ministry of Health in the interest of the school population.

      Children with special health needs

      Pupils for whom special care or protection is to be foreseen for their health, an individualised support plan (P.A.I.), must be provided at the beginning of the school year or when a statement requiring such protection is issued.

      This is mandatory, and no exceptions can be made. In the absence of an individualised support plan (P.A.I.), the school considers that the pupils do not require any treatment. For more information about the different procedures and modalities, please contact your child's attending physician or refer to the information: 

      https://guichet.public.lu/fr/citoyens/famille/parents/assistance-enfance/projet-accueil-individualise.html

      It should be mentioned that the school, as part of the implementation of each individualised support plan (P.A.I), will organize a consultation meeting with the people concerned and directly interacting with the pupil. 

      As part of an individualised support plan (I.A.P.), individual and prescribed medications for the pupil in question will only be administered if a complete medical kit is provided to the medical service along with the emergency protocol.

      1.  Canteen 

      Any pupil with a food allergy and/or intolerance can benefit from a hypoallergenic meal or be a "spreader".

      In case of food allergy and/or intolerance, parents are responsible:

      • of the registration and
      • of the request for hypoallergenic meals or spreadable meals from the canteen company. Meals with exclusion of restrictive foods are not an option. 

      For pupils who for health reasons need special supervision at mealtimes: 

      • the school does not offer one-to-one or specific supervision
      • pupils who cannot take meals in the canteen must be escorted and supervised during the meal by their parents/guardians. 
      Read more

      Social and Psychological Service

      The school has a psychological service. 

      The intervention of this service consists mainly of:

      • to provide support for pupils' educational, emotional and behavioural difficulties;
      • to participate in procedures for specific school needs;
      • to support the pedagogical staff by informing them of the specific needs of pupils. 

      School psychologists do not carry out psychopedagogical and/or diagnostic assessments. These assessments must be carried out externally to the school. 

      The appointment is mandatory and must be booked by email or phone. A delay of 2-3 days for a reply to the email and a delay of 10 days for an appointment are possible due to the large workload faced by the service. 

      The school has links with various social and psychological services. Parents whose children have learning or behavioural problems are asked to approach the educational advisors or head teacher for the secondary cycle and the classroom teachers or deputy headmaster for the primary cycle in the first instance.

      Medical-psychological unit

      In order to increase the efficiency of the exchange between the medical and psychological services, a medical-psychological unit has been created. 

      This unit promotes communication and cooperation between services. To this end, regular meetings between the members of the unit are organised throughout the school year.

      Well-being of pupils

      The ethos of the European School Luxembourg II is founded on a basis of mutual respect between all members of the school community to encourage the self-respect of the pupils and preserve their right to emotional and physical privacy. The school is a place of learning and socialization, where the notion of ‘living together’, the wellbeing, as well as the success of everyone should be emphasised. Therefore, it is a priority to establish a school culture of acceptance, tolerance and respect, where all members of the school community (pupils, parents, teachers, management, nurses, duty teams) must be involved. In all cycles of the European School (nursery, primary and secondary) teachers play a crucial role in creating an atmosphere of support and empathy both inside and beyond the classroom with the setting-up of various projects, workshops, common projects (KiVa-project) and class-independent actions. For the students of the secondary school, those actions / workshops focus on drug prevention and sexual education. They are realized together with local experts (police, Planning Familial, etc.).

      Establishing a positive climate at school is implemented by organizing staff meetings, class and parent meetings and providing newsletters to families. Reinforcing positive social interactions and inclusiveness is part of this culture. School staff keeps parents regularly informed, make them feel welcome, and treat them as partners. Thus, we need parents’ active collaboration with all stakeholders in the education of their children. Parents need to contribute to encourage a peaceful and serenity atmosphere within the class and the entire school. It is necessary that they fully engage with the school and respect class rules and that they, too, set good examples to their children. They are required to be respectful, supportive, positive and collaborative. Further parents can contribute to a positive school climate through the parent association (APEEEL2), volunteering, and school improvement events. On this basis alone we will be able to achieve common goals like creating a safe and secure learning environment and developing an atmosphere of cooperation, self-confidence and the well-being of the school community.

      Any information that raises concerns about the welfare and protection of any pupil is transmitted to the appropriate school staff and any allegation is treated as a matter of utmost seriousness. Personal freedom and the right to human dignity are fundamental human rights. In any conflict the rights and protection of the child are paramount. It is understood and respected that sensitivity and understanding in dealing with a child protection case is of extraordinary importance. According to the Child Protection document of the European Schools the role of the school is to provide an appropriate education for all pupils.

      It is our aim that a culture of openness exists throughout the school, where all members of the community feel allow to express their concerns and anxieties without fear of retaliation or humiliation and have confidence that they will receive a serious, sensitive and professional response from the members of the social and psychological service.

      ACTIONS WITHOUT BORDERS

      Actions sans Frorntières

      ACTIONS SANS FRONTIÈRES AKTION OHNE GRENZEN 

      www.euroschool.lu/asf

       

      Actions Without Borders of European Schools “ASF” (ex-Third World Committee) is a multicultural organization including students, parents, teachers, and staff from the European Schools of Luxembourg who wish to support concrete projects in favor of developing countries.

      The main objectives are the following:

      • raising awareness of the students to the problems faced by the developing countries, stimulate their sense of sharing or solidarity and give them the opportunity to get involved in development aid. For example, during the school year 2012-2013, the students invented the new name of the Committee, designed a new logo and created stickers and bracelets intended for sale.
      • raising funds to support various projects in developing countries. All of the funds raised go to the project. The organization has never subsidized any travel of the committee members. The projects are practical and clearly identifiable in time and space.

      In 2017-2018, the group supported projects proposed by the pupils, parents or school staff.

      A total amount of 44 040 € was distributed over various projects in Burkina Faso, Senegal, Togo, Gambia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Morocco, Palestine, Nepal, Algeria, Colombia, India, Swaziland, Madagascar and Argentina. We also supported the project “Olympiades d’Etudes Solidaire” in Congo.

      In order to finance the projects and raise awareness of the school community, the Committee organized the Christmas Market, the Sports Day in primary school, two dance parties in secondary school, many cake sales during theatre performances and school concerts, a parade of Ethiopian ethnic costumes, animated information stands and cultural discovery stands during the “Fête de l’Ecole” in May.

      We look forward to equally productive years ahead in 2019-2020 school year in terms of organized events as well as collective awareness and positive contribution to make our world a better place.

      All the members of our school community are welcome to participate in our organization; enrolment is free.

      Fairtrade

      EEL2_Faitrade Starting on February 13, 2015, thanks to the support of our Direction, our teachers and parents, but especially thanks to the enthusiasm and involvement of our pupils, we became a certified Fairtrade School.

      ​​​​​​​Our History

      During the 2012-2013 academic year, we began working with the S3 Italian class on the Fairtrade project and to the fair trade. We started to collect information and for the first Christmas market in the new school of Mamer we have drawn and printed on our t-shirts a phrase "Not for us but for them": today it became our logo!

      Today

      The Fairtrade Committee aims to inform and educate the students of the School on the different aspects of Fair Trade. Our team is currently trained by 18 people and many volunteers who are active during the various events. STEP BY STEP we started beautiful traditions in our school:

      ACTIONS WITHOUT BORDERS

      Actions sans Frorntières

      ACTIONS SANS FRONTIÈRES AKTION OHNE GRENZEN 

      www.euroschool.lu/asf

       

      Actions Without Borders of European Schools “ASF” (ex-Third World Committee) is a multicultural organization including students, parents, teachers, and staff from the European Schools of Luxembourg who wish to support concrete projects in favor of developing countries.

      The main objectives are the following:

      • raising awareness of the students to the problems faced by the developing countries, stimulate their sense of sharing or solidarity and give them the opportunity to get involved in development aid. For example, during the school year 2012-2013, the students invented the new name of the Committee, designed a new logo and created stickers and bracelets intended for sale.
      • raising funds to support various projects in developing countries. All of the funds raised go to the project. The organization has never subsidized any travel of the committee members. The projects are practical and clearly identifiable in time and space.

      In 2017-2018, the group supported projects proposed by the pupils, parents or school staff.

      A total amount of 44 040 € was distributed over various projects in Burkina Faso, Senegal, Togo, Gambia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Morocco, Palestine, Nepal, Algeria, Colombia, India, Swaziland, Madagascar and Argentina. We also supported the project “Olympiades d’Etudes Solidaire” in Congo.

      In order to finance the projects and raise awareness of the school community, the Committee organized the Christmas Market, the Sports Day in primary school, two dance parties in secondary school, many cake sales during theatre performances and school concerts, a parade of Ethiopian ethnic costumes, animated information stands and cultural discovery stands during the “Fête de l’Ecole” in May.

      We look forward to equally productive years ahead in 2019-2020 school year in terms of organized events as well as collective awareness and positive contribution to make our world a better place.

      All the members of our school community are welcome to participate in our organization; enrolment is free.

      Fairtrade

      EEL2_Faitrade Starting on February 13, 2015, thanks to the support of our Direction, our teachers and parents, but especially thanks to the enthusiasm and involvement of our pupils, we became a certified Fairtrade School.

      ​​​​​​​Our History

      During the 2012-2013 academic year, we began working with the S3 Italian class on the Fairtrade project and to the fair trade. We started to collect information and for the first Christmas market in the new school of Mamer we have drawn and printed on our t-shirts a phrase "Not for us but for them": today it became our logo!

      Today

      The Fairtrade Committee aims to inform and educate the students of the School on the different aspects of Fair Trade. Our team is currently trained by 18 people and many volunteers who are active during the various events. STEP BY STEP we started beautiful traditions in our school:

      • Christmas Market: Awareness of CACAO production with Fairtrade chocolate and fruit fountain.
      • Valentine’s Day: Awareness of Kenya's Roses-producing cooperatives and Roses sale, only at the secondary level.
      • Mothers' Day: Awareness of Kenya's Roses Producing Co-operatives and Roses Sale, for the maternal and primary cycles.
      • School Celebration: awareness of the manufacture of footballs; Quizzes, balloons and Fairtrade cotton. Pancakes and Fairtrade Fruit Salads.
      • Preparation of a panel to raise students' awareness of the concept of "Fairtrade school", prepared entirely by secondary school students.
      • Fairtrade graduation to all students who actively participated in the various activities throughout the year.

      Thanks to all the actions carried out throughout the school year 2018-2019, The Fairtrade Committee could support the construction of a new classroom which will be able to welcome 35 additional pupils to the Nursery of Mitantana (Madagascar)

      The committee is strongly supported by students, parents and primary and secondary teachers.

      Thanks to the collaboration, availability and generosity of the school as a whole, our journey and our steps are moving forward ...
