Gifted & Talented

Overview

dramaAt George Salter, we support a culture of learning that will enable all learners to succeed.

Students who are gifted academically and, or, talented, are given many opportunities to stretch and extend their learning.

A range of both curriculum and enrichment activities are available for more able students. These include subject-specific study support, residential visits, Saturday schools and holiday activities – provided by both Academy teaching staff and external providers. There is also a vast range of opportunities for students to perform and showcase their talent.

Parents will be informed if their child is part of the Gifted & Talented cohort. danceParents will be informed if their child is part of the Gifted & Talented cohort. The G&T team within the Academy will regularly monitor the progress of these students; allowing us to identify and address underachievement quickly and implement appropriate intervention strategies to ensure all students achieve their potential. Parents may be contacted to aid in intervention and ensure they can support their child if underachievement does occur.

Consultation evenings do occur throughout the year in order for discussions to take place.

We aim to provide classroom teaching that challenges students and provides opportunities to think, to talk, to reason, to ask questions and to solve problems, all to enhance their academic ability and life skills.

Strong links have been formed with local and national universities allowing visits to take place which have significantly raised the aspirations of many of our students; musicresidentials and Saturday workshops across the country have also taken place.
