Able, Gifted & Talented Pupils

 at Lydiard Millicent CE Primary School

At Lydiard our aim is for all children to do well and progress in all areas of their development. In school, we use the DfES term Gifted and Talented. Gifted refers to pupils who achieve or have the ability to achieve at a level significantly in advance of their year group within our School, in one or more subjects in the statutory curriculum. Talented refers to pupils who have this ability or potential in art, music, PE, sport or creative art. However, when discussing pupils with parents we use the term ‘more able’.
