Our Lady of Grace is committed to creating an ethos where high achievement for all is expected, valued and celebrated.
We recognise the wide range of abilities that our children have. More able children are children who are performing above the level of their peers.
Our Lady of Grace is a member of the National Association for Able Children in Education (NACE).
During the academic year 2016-2017 the school More Able Lead (Mr Collins) has been working with staff to improve the school's provision for more able children. Some of the areas which have seen improvement include:
School now has in place a draft 'More Able Agreement'
2. Staff Handbook
School handbook compiled by whole staff with reference to school approach to more able children.
There are now clear procedures for identifying more able children.
Big Thinking club for more able children implemented. Library visits for all children but with a focus on the more able.
Star Writer awards/display and new trophy cabinet are just two of the initiatives introduced to raise the profile of high achievement.
6. School Development Plan
Close monitoring of the progress of 'vulnerable groups' including the more able selected as a key priority for 2016-2017.
