Gifted and Talented


In order to meet the needs of every child’s ability, we identify pupils who show a higher level of interest and development in a particular area. We record any outstanding achievements by pupils and work hard to offer additional extension and enrichment opportunities to further develop their skills. For example;

  • Choir – any pupil showing a talent in Music would be encouraged to attend our weekly choir.

  • Musical Instruments – any pupil showing a talent during class instrumental lessons in Year 4 would be encouraged to continue with individual lessons.

  • Whole-School Production – any pupil showing a talent in Drama, Dance or singing would be auditioned for a main part in the production.

  • Olympic Sports Day – especially aimed at pupils talented in any aspect of sport.

  • School Public Speaking Competition ‘Off by Heart’ – each Spring Term.

  • Liaison with High School Staff – to extend the work of our higher-achieving pupils in Literacy and Maths.

  • School Council / Eco-Committee and Sports Ambassadors – offer opportunities for extending leadership skills of chosen pupils.

  • Play Leaders - Children showing the skills necessary to lead games and activities during break and lunch times.
