Pupil working on science project

Gifted is a term used to describe students with particular academic ability. However because the word is used in different ways by teachers, it is important to understand its meaning within G&T education. In the UK, it relates to academic ability.

Although there are some common characteristics by which gifted pupils can be identified, there are additional, subject specific characteristics. These can be explored in greater depth at the National Curriculum website and will help you when identifying pupils within subject areas.
