Schools are now required to identify 5% to 10% of their most able pupils as Gifted and Talented. Providing a G+T programme for the whole school may seem a daunting prospect, so how have other schools engaged their pupils and staff? Here we look at the issue from a Management and Governors perspective, focussing on the fundamental questions of identification and provision and looking at how proper support and structure can evolve into a sound whole-school policy. Taking an inclusive approach to identification, including pupils from all backgrounds, languages and learning styles, different schools provide a range of learning opportunities as well as monitoring methods. But the message is clear - good provision for the most able has a positive impact on the whole school.
