Government are committed to ensuring that every child has the opportunity to progress well and that they receive an education that is personalised to their individual needs. We are re-launching an online environment for Gifted and Talented (G&T) pupils and strengthening the support we provide to schools to help them provide the additional stretch and challenge their G&T learners need to fulfil their potential. We are introducing some changes to better support teachers delivering G&T education, to ensure that G&T is better integrated into school and classroom practice and that schools have the funding they need to develop and support their most able pupils, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
