Our school was established in 1962 year. For almost 40 year it was Primary School.
Following changes to school system in 2000/2001 our school created branch of Integrated
Middle School nr 52 in Deotymy Street . Next year our school created own integrated Middle
School. Since 2004/2005 the Middle School together with Primary School changed name to
Complex School no 65 with Integrated Classes.
In 2009 the Middle School was given name after Irena Sendler.
Because of changes in education system in Poland and gradual phasing out of Gymnasium (middle school)
our school changed its name to Primary School Nr 236 with Integrated Classes.
Now we are a primary school in which learning is extended from 6 to 8 years for children from the age 6 to 15.
Integration traditionally refers to the education of children with special needs in mainstream
settings. If the child has special educational needs, it means that they have learning difficulties
and they find it much harder to learn than most pupils of the same age or they have disabilities
that make it much more difficult for them in school. There are few types of need: Specific
learning difficulty, Moderate learning difficulty, Severe learning difficulty, Profound and
multiple learning difficulty, Behavior, emotional and social difficulty, Speech, language and
communication needs, Hearing impairment, Visual impairment, Multi-sensory impairment,
Physical difficulty, Autistic spectrum disorder, Other difficulty/disability.
Many children will have SEN of some kind at some time during their education. Help will
usually be provided in their ordinary, mainstream school, sometimes with the help of outside
The beginning of Integration in our school is dated on 1990/1991. Special adaptation was
made in 2 classrooms (recent classroom no 16 and 17) together with entrance for disabled
next to the gym and bathroom adapted for disabled. The first integrated class had huge
influence on students in our school. They became more aware of people with disability and
they were always willing to help.
First students with difficulties left our school in school year 1993-1994. All of them
continued education in different middle schools. Half of them passed Baccalaureate and some
reached higher education .
Recently the aim of our school has been to provide education and integration to social life by
comprehensive development according to individual abilities. There is at least one integrated
class on each level, with few children with disabilities, special educational and social needs
and intellectual impairment in each class. Every integrated class has special educator, who
provides help and support in education for those children. Integrated classes are based on
national curriculum for public schools which is individually modified for each child with
special educational or social needs according to its speed of development and progress.
Children are under help of educators, psychologist, speech therapist, sociologist, sensory
therapist and rehabilitation.
