We have highlighted certain groups of students to receive extra sessions in addition to their two hour allocation. We see this ‘value added’ provision as essential in making our curriculum fully inclusive, whilst meeting individual needs of all students.
Gifted and talented provision (Olympic Group)
At St At St Piers school, all of our students are given the opportunity to attain success and develop a positive attitude towards physical activity. With our higher attaining students, we aim to help them fulfil their potential, by providing them with extra enrichment and extension activities and further responsibilities that will develop them, not only in a sporting sense, but as an all-round individual. We understand the phrase ‘gifted and talented’ to refer to the top of our pupils as measured through both actual and potential achievement.
Our identification process consists of two processes:
- Teacher identification – PE teachers will assess students within their PE lessons and ascertain what level they are working at. They will also liaise with class teachers and the school management team, in order to establish students’ behavioural and work standards, outside of their physical education lessons
- Formal Data Collection (B Squared) – Data will be assessed from B squared, and higher attaining students will be selected, in conjunction with information gathered from PE/Class teachers.
