We are committed to providing an environment which encourages all pupils to maximise their potential, including those who display special gifts or talents.
More able pupils are defined as achieving above age expected levels in all subject areas. Gifted pupils are defined as excelling (performing significantly above age expected levels) in an academic area of writing, maths, science, ICT, languages or humanities.
Talented pupils have a specific ability in a non-academic area such as art, music, drama, dance or another area of sport which is way beyond that expected at their age.
We would expect approximately 25% of our pupils to fall into the more able, gifted and talented category. Of these, approximately 10% may fall solely into the gifted or talented category. These categories are fluid and a child may move in and out of them over their school career.
