Teaching, learning, assessment and the presentation of reports are interrelated aspects that make up the core of any educational system.

At Mater Salvatoris School, we help all of our students achieve academic success, by instilling in them certain attitudes and habits.



Primary School is a crucial time to teach children about work habits. There are guidelines that can help achieve this goal:

  • Provide a quiet place to work.
  • Establish a scheduled start time, which should not vary and not be too late.
  • Prepare all of the materials needed to work so as to avoid unnecessary interruptions after the student has sat down to study.



In the beginning, it is necessary that parents and teachers help the girls organise their work. At a young age they should grow accustomed to using an diary and having it alongside while doing their homework. Once study time is over, it is a good idea to check that all tasks have been completed.

The following guidelines may help to organise work:

  • Begin by studying, then move on to solving problems or completing exercises.
  • Begin with subjects of average difficulty, then tackle the most challenging or difficult and finally complete those that are the easiest.
  • Grow accustomed to studying what has been explained in class on a daily basis by developing a clear, concise and visually attractive schedule.
  • Monitor the time dedicated to each exercise in order to maximise efficacy.
  • It is important to review your work. The review helps to reinforce what has been studied and internalise learning.
  • Check that all the work has been done and prepare your backpack for the next day.

The girls are responsible for their own obligations: they are in charge of doing their homework and studying. Initially, they will need assistance, but later it is essential that they become autonomous and independent: “We should not do for them what they are capable of doing for themselves”.

Mater Salvatoris School has an outstanding Learning Support Department, the purpose of which is to help students overcome any learning difficulty. As we know that language is fundamental in our students’ development, a speech therapist is available at Primary School level to help alert to and overcome any obstacles to speech.

The School attaches special importance to the role of the tutor in tour students’ growth, both academically and as people. The climate that we strive to create is one of closeness and trust. We work especially hard to ensure that the students feel supported throughout their academic career.

The aim of the tutor is to promote the comprehensive education of the student as a person and to bring out the best in her through personalised education and careful consideration of her needs.

Collaboration with the tutor encourages communication between the parents and the School. The School informs parents about their daughters’ current academic level, explains the individual learning process for every girl and collects information from the family in an effort to obtain a deeper understanding of each student and their family background.

A number of difficulties may arise throughout a student’s school career, both academically (literacy, reading comprehension, conflict resolution, etc.) and personally (social skills, self-esteem, confidence, empathy, etc.). All of these potential obstacles are addressed according to the age of the student and the degree of severity of the issue.

Once detected, the School offers students in need individualised classes taught by a specialist who coordinates with their teachers and tutors. Once the established objectives are met, the department conducts an ongoing follow-up of each student.


Starting at Mater Salvatoris means beginning a journey in which students are supported until they pass their university entrance exams and reach university itself. The role of Mater Salvatoris is to ensure that all enrolled students make progress, by providing the assistance necessary to overcome any setbacks.
