Individual Strengths Programmes
· Learners identified as requiring additional support or extension are catered for through a variety of learning support programmes and opportunities.
· We will also focus on broadening children’s depth and variety of experiences, and supporting them to become well-rounded individuals.
· Children with individual strengths will have their progress tracked over time
· Opportunities we offer to support children with strengths include:
o On-going extension within enrichment opportunities
o Pukeko Pals: withdrawal programme to cover groups of children for areas identified by need for the school at any one time
o Cross groupings: maths, writing etc
o Differentiated curriculum: teachers acknowledging at the planning stage materials or activities that would only be suitable for those identified as gifted or talented - if everyone can do it then it is not catering for the exceptional
o External opportunities: ICAS, dual enrolment with the Correspondence school, accessing experts in the wider community
