Supporting Highly Able Pupils
In every school there will be highly able pupils, these are children who show a particular skill or aptitude in one or more curriculum subject. At Abbeymead we work hard to ensure all our highly able children are extended and stretched to reach their full potential. We expect all our teachers to have high expectations for pupils in their class and offer challenging work in all lessons.
