Ctyrlistek Primary School is a school from the 1st to the 9th grade and it provides alternative methods of teaching. It has already existed for more than 20 years and it individual approaches to its student. The aim of our work is to create a pleasant climate in the classrooms and give the students training at an excellent level. We cooperate with Palacky University in Olomouc. We are able to create students´ personal development, pay attention to prevent harmful phenomena and solve it - no bullying at school! We have focused projects in education, in cooperative and constructivist teaching, group work, etc. For many years. We want pupils to self-evaluate their work. Our methods are designed to build pupil´s self-confidence. We have our special education teacher for students with special needs. We follow the program Respect and to be respected.
Cloverleaf, the symbol of luck, covers all of this:
Safe place for learning - it’s impossible for your child to be stressful. Stress is minimised to minimum level. Date of exam is on our website at least 3 days before. Children write one exam per day. Homework and projects are found on our website as well.
Classes are not overcrowded - maximum is 15 pupils (Class 1 - 5), 18 (Class 6 - 9)
We provide verbal evaluation feedback (instead of stickers – school marks) at the lower primary school. It provides an inidication of direction for further learning, it doesn´t abash and it isn´t a punishment. We have the option to correct the given tests. Pupils have time to prepare for writing their tests and they have an advantage of consultation with the teacher. Each mark has a weight from 1 to 10, according to the importance of the work.
The key of our teaching quality is especially the meaninfulness and suitability of methods of our work, free choice of work progress, children´s activity and cooperation.
If parents and pupils use computers, smart phones, they can check the following during the day:
date of exam
lunchonline (6 kinds of meals, one dietmeal)
We start with English lessons in Class 1 (native speaker cooperates with our English teacher), German lessons in Class 8. We teach according To The Ramcovy vzdelavaci program MŠMT a Skolni vzdelavaci program - Skola aktivniho uceni a otevrenych moznosti. Children work with computers from Class 1, from Class 6 they can have their own computer for learning, writting notes. Each class has WIFI.
School evaluation is very important for our school. We assess students only verbally and we convert marks to percentages. Verbal evaluation removes the risk of stress amongst students and amongst parents. We are able to compare the achievements of individual student work, not only to compare the achievements between pupils. We use marks in the upper primary school, because we must prepare for our pupils a different system at the grammar and high schools. We use electronic student book. Each mark has a weight 1-10, according to the importance of the work. Pupils can automatically see their average mark. Consultations teacher – parents are organized with the student as well. The evaluation should reflect what the pupil knows.

Characteristics of teaching staff
Teachers and school management are encouraged to self-educate to improve language skills and to involve in projects managed by the school.
Since 1997 the teaching staff is assembled according to learning principles of the Society for brain-compatible learning - A teacher at the school in the 21st century. This training program has been created with financial support from the Open Society Fund and the Ministry of Education under the leadership of PhDr. Jane Nováčková. The priority in this program is "Respect and be respected." In recent years we have cooperated with the Faculty of Palacky University in Olomouc and the Faculty of Education of Charles University in Prague.

Daily care is very important. Our teachers cooperate, talk about their experience, they have shadowing lessons.
