Key players

Together we are responsible for the quality of education at 'De Maten'. We are a professional learning community and work from learning teams on the quality of our Dalton education.

Specific for this school

Our promise to the students is: Every child is unique, including unique Dalton education.

We provide contemporary education that suits the student and challenges them in cooperation with other students. Students become co-owners of their own development by working from learning lines and goals. They follow their own development with the help of a digital portfolio. The students acquire knowledge and learn skills in line with their development on the way to independent and responsible citizens in society. Good communication with parents and students is important to us. By having triangular conversations (pupil, parent(s), teacher(s), we work together with confidence to develop cognitively, socially, creatively and motorly.
