Statement of intent:
At Deptford Green School we provide a creative range of opportunities to ensure our more able, gifted and talented learners are able to achieve their potential and maximise their progress. All practitioners at Deptford Green facilitate learning environments that allows pupils to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding. Teachers prepare students for lifelong learning through developing their bespoke learning habits: leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication. Learners are provided with opportunities to access the highest levels of achievement and attainment through personalised pathways, that match the needs and abilities of every child. The strategies that are in place to help pupils fulfil their potential at Deptford Green, are regularly monitored and evaluated. In addition, teachers are equipped to plan for the most able as this improves good teaching and learning within the classroom, raising overall standards. At Deptford Green we recognise that provision for gifted and talented has benefits for all, inside and outside the classroom. See Figure 1 for further details.
