What does 'Gifted and Talented' mean?

The term ‘Gifted and Talented’ is used to describe students who demonstrate abilities in one or more subject area which is at a level significantly ahead of the majority of their year group, or with the clear potential to develop those abilities.


Gifted refers to students who achieve, or have the ability to achieve, significantly above average in one or more of the academically focused National Curriculum subjects. Students identified as Gifted have the potential for exceptional performance. Having an ‘above average’ ability alone is not always sufficient to be identified as Gifted - student ability must be substantially greater than other students in the cohort.

Talented refers to students who achieve, or have the ability to achieve, significantly above average in one or more of the creatively and physically focused National Curriculum subjects. Students identified as Talented have the potential for exceptional performance. Having an ‘above average’ ability alone is not always sufficient to be identified as Talented - student ability must be substantially greater than other students in the cohort.
