    • – the end being to provide appropriate experiences matched to your child’s interests, strengths and needs. Regardless of whether or not your child has been identified as gifted, they should be given plenty of ongoing opportunities to have their abilities nurtured and developed. MOE 2008
  • 11. What we do at Titirangi Primary School
    • Giftedness may be exhibited in different ways, or expressed through different domains. Gifted and Talented students may range from mildly gifted through to profoundly gifted.
  • 12.
    • All gifted and talented students, from the mildly to the profoundly gifted will be catered for within the classroom through differentiated programmes.
    • The main GATE programme happens within the classroom where the children are grouped for their needs.
  • 13.
    • Students who are highly, exceptionally or profoundly gifted and their needs are not as easily met within the classroom, may require provision outside the classroom.
    • These children may join a Year 2-4 group who meet weekly on a Thursday. Year 5-6 children may participate in Future Problem Solving (FPS), meeting weekly on a Tuesday.
