More Able and Talented

At Ysgol Cefn Meiriadog we not only provide extra support for any pupils with additional learning needs but also for those identified as more able. We are an inclusive school and work with other local schools and agencies to ensure the highest standard of provision for all our pupils. Your child’s talents and achievements are as important to us as they are to you and are celebrated by the whole school community at every opportunity, in class or during assemblies.

 

Ysgol Cefn Meiriadog is committed to nurturing all of the academic and special talents of all our pupils. Each child is unique and we feel that it is important to ensure that each child is able to reach his or her full potential.

 

Here, at Ysgol Cefn Meiriadog, we ensure that the needs of our more able and talented children are met by:

  • Having high expectations of all children.
  • Providing stimulating and challenging learning experiences through differentiated planning and resources in and outside the classroom.
  • Ensuring that the children are motivated and take responsibility for their learning, asking questions, solving problems and thinking for themselves, embracing the Growth Mindset.
  • Closely monitoring progress so that no child is underachieving.

 

We currently offer the following more able and talented interventions across the school:

- Mathematical Development

- STEM

- Literacy
