Able, Gifted and Talented
Ensuring high quality provision for our gifted and talented pupils is key to our ethos here at Sutton Benger Primary School. We strive to ensure that the needs of all pupils are met through an inclusive approach, which gives all children the opportunity to display their abilities, regardless of any other special needs or disabilities.
Gifted and talented children are identified by the class teachers through both test results, teacher assessment, other attributes that they show in their work and attitude to learning. We identify children across a broad spectrum of skills including; maths, reading, writing, PE, history, leadership and art to name but a few.
Additional challenges for children to extend their learning are provided both within the classroom environment and as extra opportunities, either with our partner school or through the Local Authority resources.
We believe that by supporting the needs of our gifted and talented pupils attainment will be raised for all. Whilst we encourage and support their academic successes, we also provide pastoral support and growth for the children and recognise that this is key to developing a fully rounded character and success in later life.
