Gifted and Talented

At Sir Robert Hitcham’s we believe that every child is gifted and talented, and that we should nurture these talents.


To do this, we keep this ethos in mind as we strive to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, appropriate to the needs and abilities of all the children. This means that our teaching plans are designed to enable every child to reach the highest level of personal achievement. Naturally, this includes children who are identified as “gifted” and “talented” according to national guidelines. 

Each term, our Gifted and Talented Coordinator meets with all members of staff to identify children who may relish an extra challenge appropriate to their needs and interests.
