Gifted and Talented

At Wilcombe we endeavour to:

  • Develop each child’s full potential, whether academic, artistic, physical, social, emotional or spiritual
  • Recognise, develop and celebrate those children who are more able, gifted and/or talented.
  • Acknowledge children’s particular talents and actively encourage achievement

In the light of these aims it is clear that we are committed to providing an environment which encourages all children to maximise their potential and this includes more able, gifted and talented children, regardless of their background, race, religion, gender or ethnicity.

We understand and acknowledge that some pupils will be working at a higher cognitive level than others and therefore recognise that provisions need to be in place to match the pupil needs.

Some pupils will have specific skills and talents and we recognise the need to provide opportunities for these to develop.

Our ethos respects and celebrates the diversity of our community and aim to ensure everyone is given the opportunity to develop skills & abilities irrespective of race, religion, gender or special educational needs.
