Gifted and Talented


We place a high priority on meeting the individual needs of all pupils – including those with gifts or talents.  We work hard to ensure all children are challenged within their learning in the classroom and beyond.  We recognise the importance of developing the whole child and invest in developing pupil’s wider skills e.g. leadership and resilience, alongside the more traditional academic subjects.  

In the past, we have worked as a Regional Centre for Gifted and Talented provision – supporting and developing the practice of several other schools in North Yorkshire.  We were also the first school in our local authority to gain the NACE Challenge Award.

Currently, Natalie Wiltshire, our Deputy Head has been accredited as an SLE (Specialist Leader of Education) for more able pupils, working to support schools across the Swaledale Alliance.

Please let us know if your child has any special gifts or talents.
