Award for work with gifted and talented
A NORTH Somerset school’s work with gifted and talented pupils has resulted in it being handed a prestigious award.
St Katherine’s School in Ham Green, Pill, has been a lead school for gifted and talented provision for the past three years but has now achieved the Challenge Award for its work with more able, gifted and talented students.
Presented by the National Association for Able Children in Education (NACE), the prize is a nationally-recognised, quality mark celebrating the school’s high quality work in challenging all students to achieve their best.
A NACE assessor spent a day at the school, observing lessons, interviewing students, teachers, parents and governors, and looking at pupils’ work.
Headteacher Stephanie Quayle said: “I am delighted our work with gifted, talented and exceptionally able students has received such a high accolade.
