Information about how Gifted, More Able and Talented (GMAT) is organised at LCHS in terms of identification, staff responsibilities, etc can all be found in the draft policy which you can find in the links section. The policy’s aims are quoted below:
“This policy is an integral part of the school’s broader development of maximum inclusion of educational opportunity for all learners and states our commitment to providing an environment in which all learners are enabled to realise their potential. LCHS’ aims are to:
- Provide learners with work at higher cognitive levels and opportunities to develop specific skills or talents within the mainstream curriculum, emphasising greater enterprise, self-reliance and independence for all learners.
- Ensure a concern for the whole child and develop a culture that nurtures and promotes able learners within the school, raising their aspirations and expectations.
- Create a programme that provides varied opportunities for learners to try out new things and develop their talents together in collaborative learning experiences outside of the normal curriculum.”
