Our inclusive provision incorporates opportunities for pupils whose developmental needs lie right across the spectrum of needs.
We recognise the importance of identifying a wide range of abilities and talents and of providing opportunities to nurture them. This includes identifying and providing appropriate challenge and opportunities for pupils who have been identified as more able or talented in specific areas of the curriculum.
For example, in the autumn and spring terms, ten Year 5 pupils who have particular strengths in the area of mathematics, took part in the Scholars' Programme. This is an initiative run by an award-winning charity that exists to widen access to highly selective universities and encourage pupils to aspire to higher level qualifications.
The project started with a visit to Cambridge University's Homerton College, which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
The visit was followed by a series of university-style tutorials led by a PhD tutor and ended with a graduation ceremony at King's College University in London.
We invite parents and carers to tell us about talents and abilities that they see their children demonstrate outside of school.
This helps to inform the provision that we develop and has led to a number of pupils across the school being nominated to take part in various activities and projects for more able and talented pupils.
We also work closely with the secondary school within our Trust who are developing a series of subject-specific experiential days for more able and talented pupils in Year 5.
