ENRICHMENT AND EXTENSION supporting gifted and talented students ANNE HARDING TRAINING
<ul><li>What are your concerns about your library’s provision for gifted and talented students? </li></ul>
<ul><li>Gifted and talented children are those who have one or more abilities developed to a level significantly ahead of their year group (or with the potential to develop these abilities). </li></ul>source: www.standards.dcsf.gov.uk/giftedandtalented
<ul><li>The term gifted refers to those pupils who are capable of excelling in academic subjects such as English or History. </li></ul>source: www.standards.dcsf.gov.uk/giftedandtalented
<ul><li>Talented refers to those pupils who may excel in areas requiring visio-spatial skills or practical abilities, such as in games and PE, drama, or art. </li></ul>source: www.standards.dcsf.gov.uk/giftedandtalented
<ul><li>Extension involves pupils following the standard curriculum but developing a deeper understanding through encountering more complex resources and materials, tackling more challenging questions and tasks, demonstrating higher levels of thinking, and presenting increasingly sophisticated responses. </li></ul>source: www.nc.uk.net/gt
<ul><li>Enrichment relates to breadth of study and experience. It involves offering pupils a wide variety of opportunities, both within and outside the curriculum, and exposing them to experiences not usually encountered as part of the standard curriculum. </li></ul>source: www.nc.uk.net/gt
