This book is an essential resource for secondary teachers, subject heads of departments. A 2-year project investigated the ability of secondary school teachers to identify the top 10 percent of students in each of four subjects, English, French, physics, and mathematics.

The students were tested on a wide range of aptitudes and attitudes at the beginning of their third form (ninth grade). Teachers were asked to list students they considered high or outstanding in potential in Author: Cliff Denton, Keith Postlethwaite. In the second year of a project investigating the ability of secondary school teachers to identify high-ability students, two questions were addressed: what student characteristics influenced teachers' judgments, and why checklists appeared to have little impact on teachers' judgments.

A structured approach was developed to study student characteristics to which teachers were sensitive when Author: Cliff Denton, Keith Postlethwaite. In the comprehensive school timetable, the issues at stake are even more complex than those of the timetable of either the grammar or the secondary modern school, and the task of welding it together to fit complex requirements and make it one coherent whole is even more difficult than for the other schools.

Luckily, I now work in a school where there is a strong collaborative approach to supporting our brightest students, and this has made all the difference. We have members of staff dedicated to tracking the progress of more-able students across the school and each department has a "champion" leading the approach in their subject.

Headteacher Paul Stubbings knows that the pupils at his west London comprehensive school have the right to a free, fully funded state education. less able pupils, and provide more A. David Jesson, of York university's centre for performance evaluation and resource management, said able pupils did just as well in comprehensive schools as in grammar schools.

A survey of non-selective state secondary schools by education standards watchdog Ofsted found that more than 40 per cent were failing to help the most able pupils achieve their potential. “Inspectors should pay particular attention to whether more able pupils in general and the most able pupils in particular are achieving as well as they should.” - Ofsted School Inspection Handbook, July Ofsted’s School Inspection Handbook places significant importance on the achievement and progress of your most able pupils.

Identification of more able learners This is a complex issue from which no definitive answer has emerged to date. It is further complicated by a range of terms used both locally and nationally, e.g.

'highly able', 'more able', 'gifted and talented'. Currently, Ofsted uses the term ZMore Able in primary schools and Most Able in secondary schools. Pupils at state comprehensive schools achieve very similar GCSE results overall regardless of whether they live in an area with grammar schools or not, according to the research (around KS4 mean points for both selective areas and England overall for all pupils, and around points for FSM pupils in both selective and non-selective areas).

The research by academics at the UCL Institute of Education and Oxford Brookes Business School used statistical and machine-learning techniques to analyse more thanpupils’ GCSE results to see if they could accurately predict later A-level grades.

Mountain Ash Comprehensive School has high expectations of all its pupils. All pupils at the school have a right to an appropriate level of challenge as a part of their curriculum experience. Pupils who are identified as being More Able and pupils who are Talented are supported through an enriched and/or extended curriculum.

more able pupils. However, we have learnt from our school visits that, when appropriately planned and targeted, the more academically able can benefit significantly from tuition.

We have also leant from these visits that this group of academically more able pupils is distinctively different from more vulnerable groups, with specific learning needs.
