More Able Children

At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that all children have a right to a broad, balanced and relevant education which provides continuity and progression and takes individual differences into account. In our school we aim to provide a curriculum that matches the needs and abilities of all our children. We plan our teaching and learning in such a way that we enable each child to reach for the highest level of personal achievement 


  • MORE ABLE ‘more able’ children achieve high levels of attainment across the curriculum or excel in  one particular academic area such as Maths or Literacy.
  • TALENTED ‘Talented’ refers to a child who excels in the artistic and creative subjects or PE, but who do not perform at a high level across all areas of academic learning.
