More Able & Talented
We are delighted to announce that St Bernadette's has received the challenging and highly coveted NACE Challenge award. The award is given in recognition of school-wide commitment to high-quality provision for more able and talented (MAT) learners, within the context of challenge for all.
In Wales the term ‘More Able & Talented encompasses approximately 20% of the total school population, and is used to describe pupils who require enriched and extended opportunities across the curriculum in order to develop their abilities in one or more areas.
‘Meeting the Challenge’ 2008
The identification of More Able and Talented learners is linked to their context regardless of how the abilities of these learners compare to those in other schools.
The term ‘more able and talented’ includes learners who are more able across subjects within the curriculum as well as those who show talent in one or more specific areas, which could include practical, creative and social fields of human activity.
At St Bernadette's Catholic Primary School, Mrs Husband is our Leader for More Able & Talented.
