Progression & Achievement: Gifted & Talented 2012
Why is this conference relevant?
From January 2012, Gifted & Talented pupil data will no longer be collected on school censuses. Despite this, Ofsted are still focusing on the importance of effective provision for different groups of learners, in particular those who are Gifted &Talented students.
Are your more able pupils being effectively challenged to provide progress?
