Able, Gifted and Talented Students. Chipping Norton school is committed to ensuring challenging learning for all. The development of the schools provision for Able, Gifted and Talented students forms part of the whole school development plan and is a focus for staff training throughout the year. Early identification of able, gifted and talented students enables us to cater for specific needs by providing challenging and varied ways of learning. A dedicated Gifted and Talented Co-coordinator works closely with Heads of Department to provide a curriculum that addresses the needs of the more able cohort. The DfES and the Excellence in Cities Initiative states: • GIFTED students are significantly above average for their cohort in one or more subjects in the statutory curriculum other than Art, Music and PE, Dance and Drama. • TALENTED students are significantly above average for their cohort artistically and in performance. • The cohort is not permanent and students may move on of off the register of Gifted and Talented students. Students may be on the SEN register, and they may have behavioural difficulties. Chipping Norton School: Currently students at Chipping Norton School are identified as A, G and T in two ways: 1. Utilising CATs data 2. Teacher nomination using subject specific checklists. Once identified students are recorded onto a register, this is highlighted on the schools central Sims system and each department holds a paper copy. Curriculum Provision for Able, Gifted and Talented students. Each Head of Department is responsible for providing an appropriate and challenging curriculum for all of its students. An annual departmental audit takes place to monitor provision. Examples of existing provision are: Differentiation through challenge within subject areas, Bloom’s higher order questioning, differentiated homework and open ended tasks, reflective journals, extension work. Setting in some subject areas, enabling pupils to work with others of like ability. Extra Curricular Provision for Able, Gifted and Talented students. A great many opportunities exist for students to develop specific skills or talents. Examples of existing provision are: School clubs, musical, dramatic and sporting opportunities. The involvement of outside agencies, groups and guest speakers. Entry to national competitions. Residential and non-residential visits.

YGT:’ Young, Gifted and Talented’ ‘Young, Gifted and Talented’ (YGT) is the new name for the National Programme for Gifted and Talented Education. (Replacing NAGTY). The responsibility for the national programme for gifted and talented education lies with the CfBT Education Trust. The Trust has launched a new ‘Learner Academy’. Existing members of NAGTY will be able to access the Academy using their existing usernames and passwords. Associate membership is freely accessible by all students between the ages of 4 and 19. Full membership is available upon validation by their school. For example, CNS will only be approached for confirmation of the student’s ability if an individual applies for a course offered by the Academy. Eligibility criteria do not exist at associate membership level and individual students register themselves.
