Gifted,Talented and More Able pupils

St James School is aware of the needs of all its pupils and this includes those of higher ability than the rest of their peer group. We are committed to providing a curriculum that helps to develop fully all talents and special abilities, intellectually and socially, enabling More Able children to maximise their achievements. For example, the school uses differentiated educational provision in the classroom through curriculum enrichment and extension activities, providing teaching that makes learning challenging and enjoyable. Parents are also asked to provide details of their children’s special interests, abilities and talents, to enable the school to tailor provision.
