How Can I Help My Child?
There are many ways in which you can help your child if they have been identified as more able or as gifted and talented in a particular subject, for example by encouraging your child to try new activities or taking them to places such as museums and galleries. You should also encourage them to participate in extra-curricular activities as well as supporting them in their ability to organise their own learning, meet deadlines and so on. If your child has an interest in a particular area be sure to encourage them and foster their interest. If they are involved in an activity outside of school (for example a particular sport) at a high level please let us know.
For subject specific information and advice please contact the relevant department coordinator.
