About the school

Klettaskóli is a special primary school serving the entire country. It was established in 2011. Klettaskóli replaces the previous specialized schools, Safamýrarskóli and Öskjuhlíðaskóli. Reykjavík City operates the school, and most of its students live in Reykjavík and surrounding municipalities.

The municipalities where students reside fund the schooling for students who live outside of Reykjavík. An inclusive class from Klettaskóli is offered in Árbæjarskóli. An inclusive class is a specialized learning resource provided by Klettaskóli and located within a public primary school.

One of the school's roles is advising teaching staff from other primary schools and providing pedagogical support for students with similar educational needs to those in Klettaskóli.

Child prosperity

The Act on the Integration of Services in the Interest of Children’s Prosperity has come into effect. The goal is to ensure children and guardians receive the right assistance, at the right time, from the right parties. Families and children in need of early support have guaranteed access to a prosperity contact in the child's immediate environment, such as in preschool or primary school. The prosperity contact offers information and guidance on services and ensures that children and guardians have unhindered access to these services. Children, youth, and guardians can reach the school prosperity contact to request integrated services.

The contact persons for Klettaskóli are: Guðrún Hjartardóttir and Lísa Njálsdóttir
