Cardinal Newman Catholic School recognises that part of its mission is to celebrate the comprehensive intake and abilities of the whole school community. It is the duty of every individual student to develop his/her talents to the full and every student has a right to receive the appropriate support from the school. This can only be achieved by offering teaching and learning activities appropriate to the abilities of students so as to maximize the potential of all. It is our belief that to achieve this we must identify the needs, talents and skills of all our students, including our most able.
High attaining students who have insufficient demands placed upon them can become bored and disillusioned. There is also evidence indicating that, where successful provision is made for most able students, there is an increase in the general levels of achievement for all students and a culture of success is created. Therefore, we strive to provide an education of quality that is challenging, exciting and develops students’ skills to their maximum. All staff have a role to play in identifying and meeting the needs of students with marked aptitudes.
