CBS students use Google Classroom for all subjects. Google Classroom is one of Google's most innovative and useful products. It is an online learning platform that aims to simplify, create, distribute and assess projects virtually. It integrates the G. Suite of student accounts, including Google Docs, Gmail and Google Calendar. Teachers can see who has completed their homework and provide direct, real-time feedback. Parents receive weekly or daily updates with the information they need to track their child's progress.
All resources for each subject are available in Google Classroom. In the event that telematic classes are required, pupils will receive all their materials and homework via Google Classroom.

Learning support offered

At CBS, the adaptation of the curriculum and teaching methodologies is a constant that is carried out thanks to the flexibility that our educational system gives us. In this way we offer and guarantee individualised treatment for each student, detecting their specific needs and adapting the classes, tasks and assessments to each of them. This also allows us to set specific objectives determined by individual abilities and needs. This differentiation of the teaching-learning process does not only apply to difficulties but also to high abilities. In this respect, we work in collaboration with the Avanza Foundation, an organisation specialising in high abilities and which maintains a close relationship with our centre, proposing different methodologies, teacher training and annual projects. There are reinforcement classes for those pupils who need them and we also organise specific classes to help in the preparation of official exams.

We also offer free activities for both pupils and their families, such as: storytelling evenings, nutrition workshops, communication workshops, training workshops for families on how to continue the work of proper nutrition at home, how to help children to continue their learning at home, how to encourage reading at home, etc.
For several years we have offered free Educational Conferences both for our families and for all those who have wanted to attend them, until full capacity is reached. Due to the current health crisis, we have replaced these Conferences with videos where we deal with topics of educational interest and we receive the occasional visit from people of interest, but right now we reserve the capacity for our students.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

We believe that all children can learn and that their personal effort, their own motivation and that received from their educators and the unconditional support of their families and the whole teaching staff are fundamental to this.

Our school does not only seek academic achievement or recognition, but to instil in our pupils the desire to learn for the mere fact of knowing and to be able to think critically and creatively. Students who are able to express their ideas confidently and confidently and who understand other points of view. We want them to graduate with a learning that will be valid for all stages of their lives, which is to learn to enjoy the journey towards our goals and, in the meantime, to approach what we do with enthusiasm at all times. That is why the motto of our school is "we want our children to be happy while they are learning so they will be happy in the future".

CBS, The British School of Seville - Colegio Británico de Sevilla, was conceived from the beginning as a project for the future, different from what has been established until now in the educational line, and therefore, unique in the province of Seville. At CBS we establish the development of the child's personality, emotional maturity, good physical health, contact with nature and affective relationships as basic elements for the integral formation of the child.

But, in addition, at CBS we promote those human values that are most important in the integral development of the individual and which constitute our five fundamental pillars: tolerance, respect, responsibility, solidarity and determination.

Thus, at CBS we believe that an education based on the development of personality and emotional intelligence is the most important thing, and that the methodology applied must be an integral process that encompasses three major interrelated areas: Committed Parents, Motivated Students and an Excellent Teaching Team.

Teaching approach of the school

Our methodology is based on a flexible curriculum system. We have qualified, motivated and experienced teachers, and we use the same content to develop skills in two-year cycles.

We differentiate between the concept of 'skills' and 'knowledge'. Learning at CBS is based on the development of children's skills in order for them to acquire the highest level of each skill. A skill is a skill that once acquired is not lost and its main characteristic is that when it is practised the level is surpassed. With this we ensure that a child, at the end of his or her school life, has the great advantage of having each and every one of the skills acquired to face different situations in life.
On the other hand, we use knowledge as a tool to develop their skills.

The excellence of our educational project is based on five fundamental points to be developed:

- Development of Emotional Intelligence. E.C.
- Development of Creative Intelligence (Multiple Intelligences).
- Physical Health
- Development of Maturity
- Development of Cognitive Intelligence. C.I.

Evaluation

In each skill there are levels of achievement. These levels are never lost, on the contrary, they increase. The difference between assessing a skill and assessing knowledge is that the amount of knowledge that a child can express in a given test is variable depending on when the test is taken, however, when assessing acquired skills it is much easier and more objective to know at what level the child is at any given moment. When assessing skills, it is much more important to demonstrate that the child exceeds the level every day throughout the course than a one-off demonstration in a test at a given moment. If the test is a test of knowledge, the result obtained may be different over time, however, if the result is the demonstration of obtaining a specific level of a skill, over time we will see that, if in the previous assessment he/she had exceeded a level, in this assessment he/she will be above it with total certainty.
