					What does Gifted and Talented mean?

The words "gifted" and "talented" can be used in many different ways. The Department for
Education and Skills uses the following definitions:

Gifted: the top 10-20% of pupils per school as measured by actual or potential achievement
in English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Modern Foreign Languages, RE, ICT or
Design and Technology.
Talented: the top 5-10% of pupils per school as measured by actual or potential achievement
in the subjects of Art, Drama, Music or PE. However one element of this description should
be emphasised: it is the top 5-10% of pupils per school, regardless of the overall ability
profile of pupils

At Walker we have a total of approximately 10% of our student population, from years 7 to
11, identified on our school gifted and talented register annually.
