Excellence for All: A Gifted and Talented approach to whole-school improvement:
The UK National Strategies website is a great source of informative resources, this is one of the latest. Read the blurb then focus on the document for download.
"This Excellence for All guidance assumes that good provision for G&T pupils is good provision for all pupils. It explores the characteristics of successful G&T learners and considers how those characteristics can be developed in under-achieving or potential G&T pupils, particularly those from a disadvantaged background.
The leadership team has a fundamental role in establishing this priority in school. They need to make clear the expectation that all pupils will benefit from a high-challenge curriculum and high-challenge classroom teaching, with support as required.
By raising expectations for all pupils, schools will be in a stronger position to:
* narrow any achievement gaps between pupils from different backgrounds
* narrow gaps in effectiveness between departments and classrooms."
This will be a WORK in PROGRESS and place to collect links that lead to current effective practice resources for G&T students.
