This document outlines our policy on provision for gifted and talented pupils. It emphasises the responsibility of the LEA and schools to make provision for these pupils. It also emphasises a partnership between these two agencies and parents, carers and others responsible for helping pupils to learn outside school time.
Our aim is to encourage all pupils to fulfil their potential; their potential therefore needs to be identified and nurtured. It is important that there is clarity about how these needs are identified and that policies are in place to meet them. Schools and parents are becoming increasingly aware that the most able pupils have an entitlement to an appropriate curriculum, which will enable them to achieve in relation to their abilities. The development of the ‘Gifted and Talented Strand’ of the ‘Excellence in Cities’ initiative has enabled schools and LEAs to focus more closely on provision for our more able and talented pupils.
