A guide for parents about the Gifted and Talented programme Schools must now identify 5% to 10% of their most able pupils as Gifted and/or Talented. How are they identified? What provision is made for them? How best can parents support these pupils? Where can they find out what’s on offer? If you are the parent of a gifted and talented pupil, this programme will give you a close-up look at how it all works, including some excellent G+T provision in a range of schools, as well as ideas for ways that you can support your child.
Increasingly, schools provide stretching and fulfilling education to more able pupils both in and out of the classroom. Taking an inclusive approach to identification, including pupils from all backgrounds, languages and learning styles, different schools provide a range of learning opportunities as well as monitoring methods. But the message is clear – good provision for the most able has a positive impact on the whole school.
