Scholarship is compulsory and free for everyone in Navarra between the ages of 6 to 16.
All the foreign minors and the natives as well, have the right and the duty to the education
in the same conditions; this right involves the access to basic, free and compulsory education, the obtaining of the corresponding academic graduates and the access to the public system of grants and assistance.
The requests for grants and scholar assistance for the canteen, transport, school materials, etc. can be processed through the school itself.
REGISTERING PRODECURES AND TEACHING MODELS
In the educational establishments there are pre-inscription and registering periods (from February to April), and an extraordinary period (at the beginning of September). Anyway, the families that arrive to the village once the course has started, they can register their over 3-years-old children going to the school. In the chosen establishment information will be given about the required documentation.
As a result of the coexistence of the two languages of Navarra, you must choose between the different teaching models offered by the educational system when registering your children:
- Language model D: all subjects are taught in Basque, except for Spanish language (4 classes a week from the 3rd year of Primary School onwards) and English (4 classes a week in Infant School and 5 classes a week in Primary School)
- Language model A PAI: all subjects are taught in Spanish, except for 11 classes of English a week from Infant School onwards and Basque as a subject (4 classes a week from Infant School onwards). The introduction of this model is progressive and, for the 2018-19 school year, this
model has now been implemented in the Infant School and up to the 3rd year of Primary School.
- Language model G PAI: all subjects are taught in Spanish, except for 11 classes of English a week from Infant School upwards. The introduction of this model is progressive and, for the 2018- 19 school year, this model has now been implemented in the Infant School and up to the 3rd year of Primary School.
