‘Gifted’ is defined as children who are able in one or more of the ‘academic’ subjects (e.g. mathematics, English, science, geography, history, psychology, sociology etc) and ‘talented’ is defined as children who are very able in art, music, drama, P.E. or dance. Children identified as gifted or talented are working at significantly higher levels than their peers in that subject.
At New End we seek to support the children who lie within this category but also acknowledge that all children will have unique gifts and talents, many of which may not yet be discovered. We seek to be inclusive in our provision of enrichment activities within the classroom and in the information we offer to parents regarding opportunities beyond it.
