What is “More able and talented?”
In Wales, the term ‘more able and talented’ refers to about 20% of pupils who require enriched and extended opportunities to develop their abilities or talents in one or more areas.
In every school, there are more able and talented pupils who require greater support in learning than that provided for the majority of pupils. These pupils include those who are more able across the curriculum and may be capable of achieving above the expected level in the end-of-key-stage teacher assessments. They also include those pupils who show ability or are particularly talented in one or more specific areas, such as music, drama, art or sport.
