- Publisher's Summary
- Schools universally are concerned with raising standards according to government requirements, particularly for those pupils who could be termed 'more able'. The key challenge for all schools lies in how to implement government initiatives such as Every Child Matters and Personalised Learning, making them effective and successful for all their pupils. The authors of this highly engaging book carried out extensive analysis of 12 key schools - each one selected for its particularly challenging circumstances - whose effective strategies had enabled their more able pupils to thrive and achieve their full potential. By drawing upon intensive interviews with staff, pupils, parents and governors, the authors provide in this book practical hands-on guidance based on the very best practice of these 12 schools, which can easily be implemented into other school environments. The 12 'case study' primary and secondary schools subscribe to the educational ethos of creating an environment for all pupils to discover their gifts and talents, and so this book describes the strategies that have been developed to provide equal opportunities for all pupils whilst accommodating different individual needs and rates of development. These schools all face challenges common to most other schools in the UK, but they have all successfully raised the motivation, achievement and educational standards of their pupils. Teachers seeking guidance and inspiration from real-life schools will find here much realistic, common-sense and easily implementable advice. School leaders and gifted and talented co-ordinators will find this an essential read.
