organized and carried out in their school. In this way, the Hundertwasser School, as a special school of the district of Gütersloh, with a team consisting of teachers from the school and social pedagogues from the open all-day program, with the support of the Family and Social Affairs Department of the city of Gütersloh, currently supports about 63 students with special educational needs in the area of their emotional and social development. The open all-day program is run as a social pedagogical day care (STB) by the SPI Gütersloh e.V. as the measure executing agency.

School and youth welfare work hand in hand

Over the years, more and more overlapping areas of joint work have developed in the cooperation between the teachers at the school and the social pedagogues at the all-day school. Cooperation now takes place in all areas of the school. There is an overall responsibility of all participants for all students, their families and the Hundertwasser School system. Teachers and social pedagogues work together in the homework time of the open all-day school. They conduct all KESS talks together. Both professional groups travel with all students once a year to the social training weeks/class trips. The Bauwagen project as part of intensive educational measures for students whose special educational needs go beyond the usual level is carried out jointly. Regular joint exchanges at staff and management level as well as joint concept and team-building days are a natural part of this cooperation.

Solution and resource orientation as the basis for joint action

The concept of solution- and resource-oriented communication is the basis of the joint activities of the school and the social pedagogical day care (STB). All teachers of the school as well as all social pedagogues of the SPI have received a basic qualification in solution- and resource-oriented communication. All new employees from both areas receive a 2 x 1 day introduction to solution and resource oriented communication, which is supplemented by collegially reflected practical parts. This ensures that all staff members from the school and STB are always able to carry out individual development planning with the students and their families on a professionally sound basis.
