Most Able

At The Deanes, we believe that the learning of all of our students should be personalised, leaving students feeling challenged, inspired and empowered by their learning.

We know that students learn in different ways, our teachers accommodate these different learning styles in their lessons. Our most able students are identified and monitored, to ensure they are suitably stretched and are reaching their maximum potentional.

Who are most able students and what provision is there?

Most able students are those that will achieve, or have the potential to achieve, at the highest levels in comparison with children at a similar age or stage in their education.

Within the classroom, teachers stretch and challenge the students, helping them achieve their potential and develop key life skills.

Most able learners are encouraged to develop mentoring roles within the classroom and outside of the classroom, we provide activities and experiences to push our gifted and talented students.

This could be as part of the extensive enrichment programme, which is offered to all students, or through specific activities, such as visits to universities and by outside speakers.

Our Key Stage 3 Enrichment Club is designed to give students the opportunity to broaden and extend knowledge and skills.
