Gifted & Talented

In addition to supporting students with special educational needs (SEN) teachers within Cambridge Academy Ethiopia are committed to students identified as Gifted and Talented (G&T). Assessment will be used to identify students who are gifted and talented from the ages of 4-18 in addition to recommendations made by teaching staff.

Cambridge Academy Ethiopia recognises that it has more able, gifted and talented students and: 

  • Realises that the pool of more able, gifted and talented students changes over time as students develop at different rates and move schools
  • Has strategies in place for the identification of more able, gifted and talented students
  • Ensures that more able, gifted and talented students are extended and challenged within and across the curriculum
  • Recognises that good teaching that challenges more able, gifted and talented students in the classroom will impact positively on all learners

Cambridge Academy Ethiopia also recognizes that:

  • More able, gifted and talented students should have the opportunity to experience success in learning and achieve as high a standard as possible
  • Teachers should set high expectations and provide opportunities for all more able, gifted and talented students to achieve the best that they can
  • Teachers should work to overcome potential barriers to learning for individuals and groups of more able, gifted and talented students
  • More able, gifted and talented students should experience a broad, balanced curriculum throughout their schooling that meets the requirement of the National Curriculum for England
  • More able, gifted and talented students also have the right to leisure
  • There should be recognition that some more able, gifted and talented students are at risk of underachievement
