Higher Attaining Pupils

Park End Primary School aims to provide all children with a challenging and stimulating curriculum, which encourages children to achieve a greater depth of understanding. We have high expectations for our pupils and want every single child to reach the highest possible standards and make the maximum amount of progress they are capable of.  We would like all pupils to surpass what would have been expected of them based upon their baseline performance on entry to our school. We recognise children as individuals with unique personalities, skills and talents and do not use terminology like ‘gifted’, ‘talented’, ‘more able’, or ‘less able’ because we don’t believe in false categorisations that create the prospect of becoming self-fulfilling prophecies. At Park End Primary School, we undertake high quality assessment of learning to ensure that pupil groups are fluid and do not undermine pupils’ feelings of self-efficacy.

Having said that, we believe that some children are achieving, or have the potential to achieve, significantly in advance of the average for their year group. It is our responsibility to enable them to reach the highest possible standards and nurture high ambition and scholastic excellence. We offer these children some additional provision to develop their talents and interests. We believe that this additional input, not only benefits these pupils, but benefits all pupils. This is because the vast majority of learning at our school involves mixed ability, randomised learning partners. We seek to create a community of learners – one in which everybody learns from everyone else.
