Most Able Students
Most Able students have been defined as those students who possess skills or abilities that are notably advanced compared to their peers within the same academic year (or they demonstrate the potential to further develop these abilities).
The Most Able will always be a diverse group and their range of attainment will be varied; some do very well academically, evident through assessment and classwork. Being ‘Most Able’, however, covers much more than the ability to succeed in tests and examinations. We know every child is unique. We know children blossom at different times along their educational journey and we will be here to support them every step of the way.
The Most Able Lead at Honiton Community College is Lucy Craig (English teacher). Any questions can be emailed to her directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
Supporting the ‘Most Able’
Where Most Able students are identified as underperforming, additional intervention is put in place – in both the classroom and through the Pastoral System – with extra support dedicated to Disadvantaged Students who will have access to helpful resources or grant money where eligible.
Supporting the Most Able at Home
Parental support is undeniably one of the most important factors in a child’s success in school. No doubt, as a parent or carer of a Most Able student, you are already aware of the vital role you play in nurturing your child’s extraordinary mind to ensure they reach their full potential. However, we also understand that parents sometimes find it difficult to know how to best support a child who has exceptional abilities.
There is a growing body of information available on the internet that can help you to support your child every step of the way. We have selected some of the best websites that offer advice, information, and educational resources, which can help you support and encourage your gifted child at home.POTENTIAL PLUS UKNACE ESSENTIAL GUIDE FOR PARENTS (DOWNLOAD)NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR ABLE CHILDRENMENSA
