A BLEND OF THE TRADITIONAL AND THE MODERN
The Combined – bilingual programme is a concept that combines the best aspects of the National Programme with the most advanced modern education provided by the Cambridge International programme. This synthesis allows the children to be taught in their first language and thereby gain all the necessary traditional knowledge, as well as get an entirely new perspective by learning English through lessons mediated in the English language.
The early years of elementary education are crucial for the formation of the child’s personality and the child’s attitude towards school, which is why Savremena’s programme is thoroughly adjusted to this delicate time. At Savremena’s Combined Programme, the children attend lessons in both Serbian and English.
The innovative, contemporary approach implemented at Savremena’s Combined Programme helps them adopt the required knowledge in an easy and interesting way, as well as develop the right principles and values.
YOU ARE OUR MAIN PARTNER IN THE EDUCATION PROCESS
A SCHOOL CREATED WITH PARENTS
Parents and teachers have to be a team that leads the child to victory. We create the programme together, and the family is thoroughly involved in the education process. United, we strive for the fulfilment of shared principles.
WHAT YOUNGER SCHOOLCHILDREN GET FROM THE COMBINED PROGRAMME
THE BEST FROM NATIONAL AND CAMBRIDGE PROGRAMMES
The accreditation issued by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development and the accreditation received from the Cambridge University allow Savremena to offer two different forms of education in one:
- education that follows the curriculum defined by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development;
- teaching in accordance with the globally recognised Cambridge curriculum.
The Combined – bilingual programme concept blends the best aspects of the National Programme and the most advanced modern education provided by the Cambridge International programme.
A special advantage of Savremena’s Combined Programme is bilingual teaching, where the students, in addition to their first language, also develop their foreign (English) language skills.
At Primary School Savremena’s Combined Programme, lessons are mediated in Serbian and, partially, in English.
The benefits that the children get through bilingual teaching are numerous. In addition to the opportunity to develop English as good as their first language, the Combined Programme continually improves the students’ concentration, heightens their interest in the subject matter, teaches them to accept diversity and multiculturalism and fosters the early development of critical thinking and creativity.
To make sure that the kids are ready for the future, school must keep in step with the times, From interactive teaching that uses the latest technology for educational purposes to the design of the classrooms and the entire building – Primary School Savremena is a Future Ready school, in the fullest sense of the word.
Teaching at the 21st century school looks different than the memories of earlier generations: teachers and students use modern devices such as:
- computers and iPads
- 3D printers, scanners and pens
- and other modern devices that raise the learning experience to a higher level.
A healthy, proper and varied diet plays an important role in our students’ successful growth and development. Bad habits developed in childhood are very hard to break later in life, and inadaquate diet can have considerable consequences.
We carefully avoid industrial food, additives, flavour enhancers, white flour and white sugar and refined vegetable oils in the children’s diet. All food is 100% fresh and organic, prepared immediately before serving. In addition to serving balanced meals, Savremena gives a great deal of attention to nutrition-related education.
The students get used to the taste of healthy and fresh food, learn to combine foodstuffs and start seeking out healthy alternatives outside school, developing good habits for the future. 100% healthy
- Freshly prepared
- Properly combined
- Without artificial additives, white flour, sugar, refined vegetable oils
DEVELOPING SKILLS FOR 21st CENTURY KIDS
Elementary school Savremena develops many other aspects of knowledge and skills that help the
children establish a much stronger foundation for further education and life in general. The early years of elementary school are considered crucial when it comes to the adoption of many aspects of knowledge and skills. This goes beyond the required ones such as literacy, learning about the basics of mathematics concepts and tools and learning about nature and society.
Savremena’s students acquire knowledge that helps them analyse each piece of information and apply it in the right way. The Combined Programme ensures that they master the fundamentals of informatics literacy.
Through interactive teaching and games that provide food for thought, the students will have fun creating ideas that will boost their intellectual development.
One does not adopt knowledge only in order to get good grades; this knowledge needs to be put to work, applied in solving specific tasks, situations or problems.
IMAGINATION AND CREATIVITY
If we want to empower our children to be successful, we must nurture and encourage their creativity, their different ways of thinking and outlooks, coming up with fresh approaches to problems and tasks.

RESPONSIBLE USE OF TECHNOLOGY
FROM CONSUMER TO CREATOR
Education at Savremena is supported by state-of-the-art technology, carefully chosen to facilitate interesting and efficient ways of learning.
The frequent use of technology in childhood is one of the major challenges of the modern times. Smart devices have permeated all spheres of life and they need to be used cautiously. However, if we entirely cut out technology from the child’s life, we are set to create a digitally illiterate person, unprepared for the real life that awaits in the 21st century.
Savremena is focused on changing the children’s perception of technology. This primarily means developing a critical approach. Rather than passive consumers, the kids become imaginative creators. They no longer merely play games – they make them, create their protagonists, come up with strategies.
