Very Able Children

We are proud of the achievements of our most able children.  We provide for their needs in a variety of ways, in particular by giving greater breadth and depth to their learning, allowing to apply their knowledge and skills in many different situations rather than accelerating then through the content of the curriculum. Very able readers in KS2 are take part in the weekly "Chatterbooks" sessions, which are run like an adult book group enabling children to be challenged at the highest level in reading. Many of our children attend specialist activities such as maths or science master classes at local secondary schools with whom we have excellent links, other children have attended residential creative writing weekends.  


Many children enjoy specialist sports opportunities linked to Saracens and local clubs.  We ensure that we provide learning which challenges very able children. This enables them to realise their potential and provides them with the opportunity for excellence and enjoyment.
