More Able Students
A personalised curriculum in order for those students identified as being More Able is in place to enable those students to achieve their full potential.
We ensure that students know what opportunities are open to them and help them to develop the confidence to make the most of these. They need tutoring, guidance and encouragement. It is our intention to provide an appropriate curriculum and adequate support to enable each student who has been identified as More Able to reach his/her full potential.
A More Able student as being a young person with one or more abilities developed to a level significantly ahead of his/her year group (or with the potential to develop those abilities). Students who have the ability to excel academically in at least four academic subjects are placed on the school’s More Able Register.
Qualitative information (e.g. teacher assessment, transfer information from KS2, examples of work and parent nomination) are also considered. Classroom teachers are also responsible for recommending students for inclusion.
Students who are identified as More Able in any subject are expected to achieve a minimum of four levels of progress in that subject across Key Stages 3 and 4. The Lead Teacher will be responsible for adjusting these students’ targets accordingly.
All teaching staff are responsible for tracking and supporting the progress of More Able students
At all times the well-being of the individual student identified as More Able must be paramount
Curriculum delivery must be flexible with differentiation at its heart
Opportunities for enrichment may be offered within and beyond the normal school day.
