Key Information

Pupil Premium

 

Pupil Premium is centrally allocated to schools budgets based on the number of pupils in the school who are eligible for free school meals. This funding is provided for school to help support children’s learning and ensure pupils make appropriate progress. Schools are required to report on how this money has been spent and how this has impacted on the children’s learning. 

 

Gifted and Talented

 

What is gifted and talented?

 

Your child may be recognised as gifted if they have abilities in one or more subjects in the statutory curriculum other than art and design, music and PE.

 

Your child may be recognised as talented if they have abilities in art and design, music, PE or performing arts such as dance and drama.

 

At Morven Park Primary School we:

 

  • help our pupils to develop their skills and abilities, intellectually, emotionally and socially;
  • provide teaching which makes learning challenging, engaging and enables pupils to reach their potential.

 

            We are committed to working for quality and equality of opportunity

 

Identification of gifted and talented children:

 

To achieve our aims we highlight children who we believe to be gifted or talented in order to help them achieve their full potential. We identify children using the following strategies:

            Test scores (end of key stage levels; SAT’s levels, NFER tests)

Teacher nomination (based on classroom observation, discussions with pupils, work scrutiny)

Peer or self-nomination

Parental nomination

Predicted test/ examination results

Reading ages

 

What we will do if your child is identified as gifted or talented:

 

In class we aim to offer your child enrichment activities and differentiated planning to suit their needs. We will also encourage the development of independent learning by allowing pupils to organize their own work, to carry out tasks unaided, evaluate their work and become self-critical.

 

Outside of the classroom we aim to offer enrichment days, residential experiences, after school clubs and musical or sporting activities.
