Gifted and talented

Employ a whole-school approach to meet the needs of gifted and talented children

The education of gifted and talented children needs to be addressed effectively. To achieve this, schools must:

  • have a specific policy in place
  • appoint a senior teacher with responsibility for their learning
  • ensure that both governors and teachers are asking questions about the children’s provision, and that this is reflected in the school improvement plan with appropriate budgetary allocation.
