More Able, Gifted and Talented Pupils

More able pupils are those who demonstrate a significantly higher level of ability than most pupils of their age. This could be general intellectual ability or in:

  • specific academic aptitude
  • creative thinking
  • artistic abilities
  • physical ability e.g. athletics, football
  • leadership qualities
  • social skills
  • ability in the expressive arts e.g. dance, drama

There are also 1-2% of each year group, across the country, who are regarded as gifted.  These children are achieving at least two years above that expected for their age range in a subject.

As with all children at The Vaynor, the more able are identified through regular assessments undertaken in school and, once noted their names are placed on a More Able Register.  These children are stretched through activities and experiences at an appropriate level within class
