Kevätkumpu Primary School
The multicultural Kevätkumpu Primary School has a total of 300 students and 35 staff members. We are a local school open to all children from the area. School has a special emphasis on guiding the development of the students’ emotional and social interaction skills. The school is profiled in climate change mitigation, and children learn to do small everyday climate actions from first grade.
Kevätkumpu as well as Vårberga school has a special focus on the learning of Finnish language and literature as well as mathematics.
The underlying principles of teaching activities in Kevätkumpu include student participation and co-teaching as well as integration and inclusion of all learners.
