Getting to know our school
Basisschool Schreuder is a regular primary school located in the cultural center of Amsterdam, next to Museumplein. We are proud of our small scale, the dedicated teachers and parents, our educational offer and our successful achievements (above the country´s average). The student population of Basisschool Schreuder reflects the diversity of the Amsterdam population. Basisschool Schreuder is part of “Stichting AMOS”, a chain of 29 ecumenical schools in Amsterdam. We welcome all children and their parents, regardless background, religion, philosophy of life.
English lessons are given in all groups and Spanish lessons are for children from group 6 who already have a good command of the English language.
For children from groups 5 to 8 who need an extra challenge, there is a weekly meeting with a Socrates group. For gifted children we have full-time gifted education in the AMOS unIQ classes, from group 4.
Centralised enrolment system Amsterdam
There are over 200 primary schools in Amsterdam. Pupils are assigned to a school by means of a centralised enrolment system. Around your child’s third birthday, you will receive an official enrolment form from the City of Amsterdam. If you are new to Amsterdam, you can download the form yourself. Basisschool Schreuder participates in this enrolment system.
Priority enrolment at nearby schools
You can indicate a preference for a particular school on your enrolment form. Submit the form to the school you have listed as your first choice. If that school receives more applications than there are places available, pupils will be assigned to the school based on a lottery system. Your child will have priority at the eight primary schools that are closest to your home address.
If your child does not receive a place at the school you listed as your first choice, the system will check if there is a place available at your second choice, then your third choice, etc. The primary school enrolment process in five steps
At this moment we expect to have a place for all registered children at our school.
We organize a number of information meetings for orientation at our school. During an information meeting you will receive specific information, you can ask questions and you will be guided through the school.
The next information meetings (from 9 am to 10 am) are on:
- Tuesday, May 24, 2022
- Friday, September 16, 2022
- Thursday, October 27, 2022
You can register for these meetings by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please state which date you would like to come, with how many persons and the name/date of birth of your child.
We hope to welcome you soon at one of our meetings!
