What does Gifted and Talented Mean?
We recognise that there are some children who stand out as working at a level much higher than their peers. Children who are identified as being gifted or talented in a particular area are given opportunities to develop their skills or understanding both through class work and extra curricular activities.
Enrichment courses are a way in which we provide challenge for gifted and talented children. They are run across the county and provide children with direction from specialist teachers and an opportunity to mix with other children with similar talents.
If we have identified you child as being gifted or talented they will be placed on our register. Our office staff in collaboration with our Inclusion Manager will identify relevant courses for your child and contact you with an invitation. A small fee for each course is usually applicable.
