At BWI we recognise children, in different areas of the curriculum, need to be challenged in the classroom, ensuring that work is differentiated, as well as providing opportunities to participate in extra learning opportunities both during and outside of school hours.

How do we implement this within the school?

At BWI we adopt the following strategies and interventions to provide challenge and additional opportunities for our more able and talented pupils:

High Quality Teaching:

In class, work is differentiated for pupils meaning that different levels of challenge are provided in class. Children can opt for more difficult work if they feel confident enough to do this. Teachers can extend work for the more able pupils through the use of higher level questioning and activities that are aimed at the top level of Bloom’s taxonomy model (see image below). Additionally, pupils who are more able may be able to tutor and help others in class once completing work, as well as getting on with work as soon as it is set rather than listening to teacher instruction.

Targeted Support:

If a child needs extending over and above the support given in everyday high-quality teaching, then group intervention support can be offered. Examples of groups we run for our more able pupils include:


Half or full day workshops are run in school or at another local school/venue for pupils with guests and teachers that specialise in particular areas e.g. science, maths, authors etc.

Sports Coaching:

At BWI we have specialist sports provision which provides after-school sports clubs throughout the year. Some of our pupils who are more able or have a skill in a particular sport can help out at these after-school clubs and teach/coach other pupils alongside the teacher.
