Geographical Accessibility

A pupil fulfils his/her compulsory school attendance in catchment primary school in the school district where he/she has permanent place of residence, unless his/her parents or guardian decide otherwise. If a municipality does not establish primary school, a common school district may be agreed with neighbouring municipalities. That means, a pupil may also complete his/her compulsory school attendance  in the primary school outside  the catchment school district, with an agreement by headteacher of the primary school for which he/she has applied.  

The headteacher of school to which the pupil was admitted, shall announce the fact to headteacher of the catchment primary school, as well as to the founder of this primary school. 

The geographical accessibility of primary school is reflected by their network, which is, following the Act on state administration in education and self-government in education, laid down by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic. Several aspects are taken into consideration in its creation, e.g., primary school should be as near as possible to the pupil’s residence in order that the distance from the school is maximally reduced and the pupil can use the means of public transport. This fact is especially emphasized for pupils attending first stage of primary school.

The educational legislation enables to organize education of primary school in a classroom attended by pupils of several grades.  The above mentioned way is used predominantly in regions where population density is far below the national average. Unless the municipality establishes a primary school, travel costs connected with commuting to school are covered to the pupils ‘guardians by the state. 

In case of excluding the primary school from the network and its successive dissolution the municipality will determine the school district of the primary school in which the pupils of the dissolved primary school will fulfil their compulsory schooling. 

The pupil who fulfils compulsory schooling in a special way in school outside the SR territory or who receives education in a school  established by another country at the territory of the SR, takes the Official Examining Board tests in the subjects which had not been instructed in that school  (as a rule, in Slovak language, history, geography and literature – the subject matter on the SR, national history, and the like).

Pupils who fulfil a special way  of school attendance by the individual learning, pass an exam from all compulsory teaching subjects following the teaching plan of respective grade  at the catchment area school. 


Admission Requirements and Choice of School

Children are admitted to primary schools if they fulfil the conditions for the start of compulsory school attendance. Children’s guardians need to apply for admission when registering children at the catchment school or at the school chosen by the guardians.

Under the (Education Act)  and on change and supplement to some acts on education and training compulsory school attendance usually starts at the beginning of the school year which follows upon attaining by the child the age of six and the school maturity  If the child does not attain the maturity for attending the school upon reaching the age of six and, and if requested by his/her guardian, the headteacher will decide on postponement of the compulsory school attendance for this child until the following school year, or he/she gets the possibility to start grade 0. 

The guardian has the right to decide if the child with postponed schooling will attend the kindergarten or zero grade.  

The zero grade of primary school is designed for the children who attained by 1 September the age of six years, but have not achieved the school maturity. In case it is additionally found out in the first half-a-year that the pupil of the first grade in primary school whose beginning of the compulsory school attendance has not been postponed and who has not passed the zero grade of primary school, that he has not achieved the school maturity, the headteacher may decide additionally on his school postponement or on ranking him into the zero grade. 

Unless the child achieves even after the postponement of the beginning of compulsory school attendance or the additional postponement of fulfilling the compulsory school attendance the school maturity it will be enrolled in the first grade or, upon the consent by his guardian, into the zero grade of primary school. 

If the guardian request that exceptionally be enrolled the child who has not the age of six years, he must add to his request affirmative statement by the respective establishment of educational counselling and prevention and a statement by general practitioner for child and adolescents. 

In classes of primary schools, special primary schools the headteacher may set up the profession of assistant teacher who participates in creation of conditions necessary for overcoming  especially the language barriers (in case of enrolment in  grade 1 or zero, of pupils who do not master the language of instruction), health and social barriers of the child while providing the educational process. In establishing the post of assistant teacher in the school the headteacher applies the appropriate founder of the school for a consent. The assistant teacher may be also introduced in such classes which are attended by pupils with special education needs. 

Before the child´s entry to primary school there is enrolment to the first grade held at every school. Every child who starts compulsory school attendance in the forthcoming school year is eligible to participate in the enrolment accompanied by his/her guardian. The place and time of enrolment are determined by headteacher of the particular school in the period between April 1 and April 30 preceding the beginning of the school year in which the child enters the school. At the enrolment a teacher keeps an interview with the child and his/her guardian whom he informs about organisational conditions of entry to primary school as well as about character and objectives of the school. At the enrolment it is recommended to include in the commission also psychologist and special pedagogue, primary school teacher and assistant of primary school teacher.

At enrolment to grade 1 of primary school the numbers of all applicants for Religion or Ethics are identified. During the school year no transfer from compulsory classes of Ethics to those of Religion and vice versa, are allowed. 

The same admission requirements and procedures also apply to pupils with special educational needs or integrated pupils. However, the headteacher decides whether children with special educational needs will be admitted. 


Admission of Pupils for Study in Basic Schools of Art 

The admission to study is subject of fulfilling the required preconditions in preparatory study or successful completion of entrance examination in the selected field of art in the basic study. The entrance examinations are usually held from 1 April to 15 June. The date and place of the entrance examination is announced by the headteacher at least one month in advance, notifying as well the field of art and concentrations to be chosen by the applicants. For assessment of study prerequisites of the applicant they create a three-member admission committee and appoint its members for each field of art field or study concentration. 


Choice of School 

Pupils fulfil the compulsory school attendance in the catchment primary. If the pupil is enrolled in a different school than that in the school catchment area, he announces the fact to the headteacher of that school, namely, by 31 March of the calendar year in which the child is to start the compulsory school attendance; the headteacher of the school in the school catchment area will send by 15 April the list of all children enrolled on fulfilling compulsory school attendance to the municipality according to the child’s permanent residence, as well as to the. 

Headteacher of the school in the school catchment area is obliged to preferentially admit to fulfilling the compulsory school attendance the pupils whose place of permanent residence is in the school catchment area, and the pupils placed in school facility or other establishment on the basis of the decision of the court seated. 

Parents have a right to choose any school (public, private, church), a possibility to choose the orientation, forms and school educational programme. The choice of school is conditioned on regional possibilities and geographical conditions. At the choice of school is take into account also the child’s opinion and several other factors – distance of the school, orientation of the school and  leisure-time activities available. 

The choice of primary or secondary school has been made easier to the parents as well as future pupils /students, by means of the portal of primary and secondary schools. 

The education and training are carried out in the official language of the Slovak Republic. The citizens of national minorities are provided the right to education in their language. In schools and classes where the teaching is carried out in a minority language, the Slovak Language and Literature, must be included among other subjects. 

Primary school are divided according to the founder into the public, private and church. 

Numbers of pupils in individual schools vary. The present demographic development in the Slovak Republic, which has a downward tendency, also brings about a reduction in number of pupils enrolled in grade 1 of primary school. 

In case that a child attends a school abroad, the parent has to register the child for compulsory school attendance in Slovakia, most commonly in the catchment school. 

Pupils are entitled to free education in the primary school; non-state schools can charge for the provision of education. School textbooks and texts for compulsory subjects are lent free of charge.


Age Levels and Grouping of Pupils

Primary school is organised in classes according to age from grade 1 up to grade 9, with the possibility of establishing a grade 0 (zero). The classes are coeducational. Each grade is attended by pupils of the same age, the only exemption being the pupils who repeat the grade or gifted pupils who are allowed to omit some grades. Also the pupils with postponed school attendance make an exception. 

At school, the education and training are carried out in classrooms and in special classrooms equipped according to needs of individual subjects, especially, in laboratories, school workshops, school premises, training kitchen, gyms, and at school playgrounds. 

The classroom may be also a special classroom. Classes of individual grades are continuously designated by the Roman and Arabic numbers. 
The number of groups and number of pupils per group are defined according to spatial, personnel and financial conditions of the school, according to nature of pupils‘ activity, according to demands of the subject with regard to health protection and labour safety requirements. 

For teaching the subject of Religion or Ethics the pupils of different classes of the same year may be cubed and create groups with the highest number of pupils up to 20. If the number of pupils per group drops under 12 pupils, the groups may also involve the pupils of varied years. Once a subject is chosen, the pupil attends it during the whole school year. 

For classes of the subject of foreign language the pupils of various classes of the same year may be cubed to create groups with the highest number of pupils 17. For teaching the subjects of Informatics and Computer Education a class may be divided into groups with the highest number of 17 pupils. 

The classes of physical education in grades 1 to 4 are common for boys and girls. At the second stage of primary school the classes are divided or cubed to form groups for girls and groups for boys of the same year. The highest number of pupils in group is 25. If the number of pupils in group decrease under 12, the groups may combine pupils of diverse years. For classes of subjects of World of Work and Technology the pupils of diverse classes of the same year may be cubed to create groups with the highest number of 17 pupils. 

A specialised class may be founded in the school with the founder’s approval. It is designed particularly for pupils in need of compensation or development programme (e.g. educationally challenged children and children with academic underachievement without mental disability; children from socially disadvantaged environment who were not diagnosed with health disability but who have a potential to successfully acquire the content of the first grade of the primary school, as found by means of a psychological examination. Conditions for founding of specialised classes and assigning children to these classes are governed by the Decree of the Ministry of Education of the Slovak Republic on primary schools.


The Basic School of Art

The study in basic school of art is divided into preparatory and basic study. The preparatory study is designed for intensive diagnostication of the child’s artistic skills and his subsequent incorporation into the respective field of art. For pupils who did not attend the first stage of the basic study in literary-dramatic field, the one-year preparatory study may be organised at the second stage. 

The basic study is divided into the first stage followed up by the preparatory study, and the second stage which is linked-up to the first stage of the basic study. It is designed for the pupils who showed the required level of artistic skills, abilities and habits enabling their further successful development in the respective field of art. The first stage of the basic study is divided into the first part which consists of at most four years, and the second part consisting of at most five years. Upon successful completing of the last year of the first pat of the first stage of basic study the pupil receives primary artistic education. Upon successful completing of the last year of the second part of the first stage of basic study the pupil receives the lower secondary artistic education. 

A proposal for transfer of pupil from the basic study to the extended one is submitted by the form teacher of major to headteacher of the school by  31 March of the school year. The extended study is supplied with the approved curricula which provide more time for the pupil’s study. 


First Stage of Primary School

The first stage of primary school (grades 1 – 4 - ISCED Level 1), is attended usually by pupils aged 6 - 9. One teacher is usually responsible for one class.  If the school has created conditions, some subjects in a class of zero grade may be instructed by several teachers. 

Some subjects of educational concentration or a foreign language may be instructed, in addition to form teacher, also other educational personnel, who fulfil qualification requirements for the respective subject. At the first stage, one teacher may guide a class for four years or he/she specialises in teaching in one grade of the first stage of primary school (usually in grade 1). 

The maximum number of pupils per class of the first stage of primary school is as follows 

  • 16 pupils per class of grade 0, 
  • 22 pupils per class of grade 1, 
  • 24 pupils per class which combine pupils of several grades of the first stage of primary school, 
  • 25 pupils per class of grades 2 to 4. 

In addition to the maximum number of pupils, the Amendment to the Education Act also defines the lowest number of pupils in primary school classes. As of the 1st September 2015, the lowest number of primary school pupils is 

  • 8 pupils in zero grade classes, 6 pupils in zero grade classes of not fully organised primary schools, 
  • -12 pupils in a class comprised of pupils from two grades of the first stage of primary school,
  • 11 pupils in a first grade class, 
  • -13 pupils in classes of the 2nd-4th grade.

There is a new option to increase the number of pupils in the class by the number of pupils studying abroad. In special cases, the primary school founder will be also allowed to determine lower number than the given number of pupils in the class.

According to nature of educational programme a class may be divided into groups. At Religion/Ethics classes the pupils may be combined to have a maximum number of 20 pupils. If the number of pupils in a group for religion classes or ethics classes drops under, the groups may also include pupils from two grades.  For classes of foreign language and informatics the maximum number of pupils is 17. 

The primary education is achieved by the pupil upon successful completing the last year of the first stage of primary school or, in case of pupils with metal deficiency, by completing the last grade of special primary school; a document on the achieved level of education is the certificate with supplement. 


The Second Stage of Primary School

The second stage of primary school (grades 5 - 9 - corresponding to ISCED level 2 is attended usually by pupils aged 10 – 14). The instruction of subjects is conducted by teachers-specialist with the required qualification. The teachers have, as a rule, the certification to teach two subjects. The class-teacher, who is appointed by the headteacher, coordinates teaching in the classroom. The class-teacher along with other teachers monitors pupils’ achievements, helps him solve problems, keeps the class documentation. He uses the gathered information about the pupil for preparation of his records applied at transition to secondary school. The class-teacher controls hygienic conditions of instruction and work load of pupils, especially the volume of homework, and pays adequate attention to the impaired and those with chronic diseases. He closely co-operates with the pupils’ parents, the paediatrician and psychologist. 

The Amendment of the Education Act increased the maximum number of pupils in primary school classes.  The 5th to 9th grade classes of the primary school can now have maximum of 29 pupils. The amendment also introduced the possibility to increase the number of pupils in a class above the maximum limit, if some pupils are fulfilling their compulsory school attendance abroad. That is because of the fact that the real number of pupils attending the class in the Slovak Republic is then lower than the defined maximum number of pupils. 

In addition to the maximum number of pupils, the amendment of the Education Act also defines the lowest number of pupils in primary school classes. In the 5th – 9th grade classes, it is 15 pupils.


Organisation of the School Year

The details about the organisation of the school year are laid down by the Education Act. Exact dates are annually publicized in pedagogical-organizational directions for the respective school year and in media. 

In the Slovak Republic the school year starts on 1 September and ends on 31 August of the next year. It is divided into the period of teaching and the period of holidays. The period of school instruction begins on 2 September and ends on 30 June of the following calendar year. It consists of the 1st term and the 2nd term. The first term begins on 2 September and ends on 31 January of the following calendar year. The second term begins on 1 February and ends on 30 June of the current calendar year. 

The period of school holidays is made up of autumn, Christmas, mid-year, spring, Easter and summer holidays. If during the teaching period some unpredicted event occurs, mainly a natural disaster, energetic crisis or some other serious events, the Minister of Education, Science, research and Sport of SR can exceptionally interrupt or change the periods of teaching in schools and school establishments for the time required. 

The exact dates of school holidays are publicized in the publication School and academic calendar.


Organisation of the School Day and Week

Organisation and provision of the educational process at school is regulated apart by other, by the Decree on primary schools.  It deals with schools’ organisational structure, class teachers’ activities, methodological associations and subject commissions, dividing classes into groups, organisation of trips, excursions, snowboarding and swimming trainings and pedagogical documentation. 

The headteacher establishes after the discussion with the pedagogical council, the timetable depending on the needs of the school with regards to the school educational programme. He takes into consideration the character of the daily and weekly physiological output of pupils as well as their demands on the psycho-hygiene. 

The individual subjects are evenly divided in the timetable and instructed through lessons. The subjects where the content and organisation of teaching process requires it, may be instructed through blocs. 

The subjects which require increased spiritual activity, are instructed before the main break. If allowed by the conditions, the subjects of Physical Education or Sports are not included as the first lesson, and after the subjects of Physical Education, Sports and Work Education do not feature such subjects as Slovak language, Writing or Visual Art. The timetable also includes a class lesson. 

The school classes start as a general rule, at 8:00 a.m. Under local requirements i.e. the needs of the pupils and their legal representatives, the headteacher of the school may establish the start of the school to a time between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. 

In classes with extended teaching of physical education and sports the headteacher may set the start of lessons at 7:00 a.m., twice a week. In special cases after an informed consent by guardians of the pupils it is possible to include the subjects integrating pupils of various classes and grades of the second stage as a zero lesson with the start at 7:00 a.m. 

In case that it is not possible due to lack of premises to provide classes for all pupils in the morning, there are, exceptionally, two shifts organised, except for classes in grade 1. The afternoon classes end at 5:00 p.m. at the latest. 

The process of education and training at school takes place according to timetable. Timetable is publicised in each classroom of the respective grade and where the conditions allow it, at the school website too. 

A class lasts 45 minutes; its prolongation or shortening without a substantial reason is not allowed. 

The order and length of breaks is set by the headteacher upon having discussed it in pedagogical board or school board. Short breaks take ten minutes as a rule, the main break from 15 to 30 minutes, usually after the second lesson. 

During the main break, if the conditions provide it, pupils stay out of the classroom in the premises of the school building designed for that purpose, or they may spend it outside in the yard, i.e. on the fresh air. 

The noon break for pupils of the first grade and second grade starts no later than after the fifth lesson and for pupils of grades 3-9 no later than after the sixth lesson in the extent of at least 30 minutes. 

At the shift classes each lesson taken in the afternoon may be shortened to 40 minutes, the last lessons taken in the morning may be shortened only in substantiated reasons according to local conditions. 

In grade 1, there are five lessons given in a sequence thrice a week, in grade 2 five lessons, in grades 3 and  4 at most six lessons twice a week, in grades 5 – 9 at most six lessons in a sequence. Pupils of grade 5 and grade 6 may have at most seven lessons in one day per week, pupils of grades 7 to 9 may have at most eight lessons in one day per week. 

In the classes of the 1st -4th grade the majority of school subjects is taught as a rule by the headteacher. By the Decree on primary schools also other pedagogical employees apart from the head teacher to engage in the teaching of different subjects. 

According to the school conditions several educational workers may teach in a class of zero grade. 

The timetable depends mainly on the teaching plan. Teaching plans are drafted for orientation, giving headteachers and teachers of primary schools, space for the internal and external differentiation of pupils. The structure and proportionality of teaching subjects in the teaching plan have to correspond with the function of the respective level and kind of school. For primary school exists several variants of teaching plans. 

In order to raise the pupils’ interest in technical fields of study in secondary schools, the pedagogical-organizational directions for current year recommend to put greater emphasize on teaching mathematics and natural sciences by amendment of education programmes for ISCED 1 and ISCED 2. The schools and their founders are therefore advised to pay greater attention  to material-technical and premise provision of technical classrooms for teaching biology, physics, chemistry and technology.
