More able / G&T

More Able pupils /  Gifted and talented (G&T)

Children are identified following termly assessments and a register of more able pupils is made.

Provision for G&T or more able pupils is through differentiated activities that are more open ended or problem solving based activities. Pupils who we deem to be gifted and talented or more able and highly motivated in a particular curriculum area may be given an opportunity to take part in a ‘SWIPE’.

Approximately 10% of a class could be identified as Gifted and Talented/More Able and this is subject to change dependent on the performance of the class. It is likely that children will move on and off the register at different points throughout their school life.
