									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.
     The nomination of pupils for suitable enrichment courses outside
      of CNS.

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. (www.dcsf.gov.uk/ygt)

  7                              Our schemes of work and lesson planning create
                                 activities that allow A, G and T learners to develop
  8                              their own lines of enquiry and to select their own
                                 methods of communication. We value the range of
  9                              learning styles. There are opportunities for students
                                 to work across the nine multiple intelligences, often
  10                             selecting the style of work for themselves, and in
                                 some cases taking responsibility for designing the
  11                             task itself. We make use of a variety of strategies to
                                 develop meta cognition, (thinking about thinking)
  12                             and emotional literacy, (talking about feelings).
                                 These include work from Edward de Bono and
