Enrichment / GAT

Our creative and experienced staff are skilled at extending all pupils within the classroom. Our small classes ensure staff have time to spend with each individual pupil, understanding and responding to their particular needs.

We know that our pupils have different strengths and we take great care in finding ways to build on these strengths. We want every child with a passion for a subject to develop their interest with enthusiasm and an individualised love of learning, driven from within.

We are committed to providing an environment which challenges and encourages all pupils to maximise their potential, including pupils who we identify as being more able. A more able pupil is one whose ability in any subject is significantly and consistently above the expectation for their age. More able pupils are provided with extension and enrichment opportunities within lessons, school activities and through participation in competitions and events with which our school is involved. These opportunities are not necessarily exclusively offered to those pupils on our Gifted & Talented list (GAT) as we recognise the part that interest and enthusiasm can play in achievement; a child who is intrinsically interested in History or who has a passion for Science may well enjoy these challenging activities too.

We also have an Enrichment Programme which runs throughout the school and is open to all who are intellectually curious. These sessions take place on Monday afternoons between 4.45 and 5.30, with topics such as art, language, science, philosophy and much, much more. The sessions include plenty of opportunities for questions to be asked and discussions to be had. We are ambitious for all our children. We encourage everyone to aim high and be the very best they can be.
