Learning for the More Able at Timothy Hackworth Primary School

CRC Articles 28 and 29:  All children have the right to learn and to be the best that they can be.

Within our school we have many children who are more able, including those with a range of talents and abilities.  As educators, we seek to foster these talents and abilities wherever we find them, and take seriously the need to inspire our learners, to not only meet their full potential, but to discover their aptitudes and awaken their interests.  Our school acknowledges that a child’s higher level of ability or talent may be subject specific, or more general, or in a particular skill area.

In learning, within any subject, we strive to enable the children to become confident and perceptive questioners and to share their point of view in a reasoned and respectful way.  This focus on discussion enables children to extend their thinking to a higher level.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

At Timothy Hackworth Primary School, we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with a high quality education. Our curriculum promotes learning, personal growth and development. Further information can be found in the SEN Information Report. If you would like to discuss any SEND requirements that your child may have, please contact the school to arrange an appointment or telephone 01388 772959.

Identifying and Celebrating Children’s Achievements and Talents

‘Talented’ refers to a child who excels in one or more specific fields, typically, performance skills, such as Sport, Art and Music, but who does not necessarily perform at a high level across all areas of learning.

We respect and value the thoughts and opinions of parents.  The children used their pupil voice to request a ‘Big Blue Box of Brilliance’. As a result, our ‘Big Blue Box of Brilliance’ is located in the Main Reception, and provides a collection point where parents can provide us with photographs and information about their children’s achievements.  This information is then displayed in our ‘Big Blue Book of Brilliance’ and on our ‘Big Blue Board of Brilliance’ located in school.  Parents are also encouraged to share similar information about their children during Parent Consultation Meetings.

Learners are also invited to contribute and celebrate their achievements in the ‘Big Blue Book of Brilliance’, which is on permanent display outside our Library.  To date, we have a diverse range of contributions which include Sport, Charity Work, Music and Art.

As teachers, we ensure that we formally identify talented and more able learners through the regular and rigorous collection and analysis of progress data.  Pupil Progress Meetings involving teachers and senior leaders identify opportunities that will maximise progress for all learners.

In the Autumn term, as children settle into their new year group, teachers reflect on the information shared by the previous class teacher, and create a new record of the talents and abilities, and potential talents and abilities, of the learners in their class. Teachers then record what is offered for identified children to support and promote their abilities and talents, e.g., practice space for Music, participation at Maths events or attendance at Sports Clubs. At this point, further opportunities are explored.
