Extension and Challenge for All
As we believe that each individual is special, we also believe that each individual has a talent and it is for us to help them discover and nurture this talent.
For our more able, gifted and talented pupils, the combination of our cross-curricular approach to learning, good teaching, stimulating environment, individual planners and effective Able, Gifted and Talented Child Policy ensures pupils reach their full potential and excel. We have an ethos of achievement within school that allows individual talents to be valued and praised.
The curriculum is enriched with specialist days, including educational visits, speakers and theme days. Lessons provide the opportunity for independent learning and open-ended investigations, encouraging higher order thinking skills.
