Working together to Achieve Excellence

The broad purpose of the government’s Gifted and Talented programme is for each school to identify approximately 10% of their most able pupils in each subject and to provide opportunities and support to help them achieve to their full potential. The government’s definition of Gifted and Talented is one that

“describes children and young people with one or more abilities developed to a level significantly ahead of the year group.” (DCSF)

At Tretherras we believe that all children are entitled to an education that will enable them to succeed. This includes our most able pupils. Therefore we strive to provide lessons that are both relevant to students needs and motivates them to strive for excellence. We also provide an extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities for students to enrich their school life and provide further challenge. It is important to remember that children will be on the register for specific subject(s) and for this reason the school has produced a series of leaflets which cover different curriculum areas. On the leaflets each subject has listed their criteria for including a child on the G and T register along with their provision and other useful information.
