Gifted & Talented

Gifted and Talented pupils at Low Furness are catered for not only through our whole school programme of enrichment opportunities but also through differentiated work within the classroom and links with other primary and secondary schools. Pupils are identified by staff, ongoing assessment and by test data where appropriate. They are placed on the Gifted and Talented register that is reviewed and updated on an annual basis. The register alerts staff to the potential of pupils and it helps staff to track progress through both key stages.

Staff are encouraged to use a range of differentiation strategies in their teaching to stretch and develop pupils in the classroom by offering enrichment activities to enhance their learning.
