Gifted and Talented education has recently become a major priority in schools. Simply, the idea is to make sure that children who have exceptional ability, potential or talent in an area, are catered for.
At BCJS, we:
- Identify Gifted and Talented children using a variety of methods including teacher observations, formal and informal assessment and conversations with pupils and parents.
- Once identified, children are included on the Gifted and Talented register to make all staff aware of who these children are.
- In their planning, staff will include extension activities that will challenge able pupils.
- Children may also take part in special one off activities such as the More Able Maths Competition, Rotary Quiz Challenge and Quiz Club.
As Gifted and Talented co-ordinator, it is my role to help identify these children; make sure that they are being catered for and are achieving to their full potential.
