  • Identify the able, gifted and talented pupils in school and add them to a register.
  • Support their class teachers to set individual targets and support (where appropriate).
  • Closely monitor their progress through meetings every half term.
  • Closely monitor provision for these children to ensure that they continue to make

    outstanding progress.

  • Explore opportunities for broadening their learning experiences in and out of class.
  • Involve parents by sharing targets and provision (where appropriate).
