Higher Learning Potential

Holywell Primary School is committed to maximising the potential of all of our pupils, including pupils identified as having Higher Learning Potential (HLP). At Holywell, we have adopted the following definition of pupils with Higher Learning Potential, based on guidance from Potential Plus (formerly known as the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC):

• children who are significantly exceeding expectations for their year group academically

• children who have talents in art, music, drama and related areas which are significantly above expectations for their age

• children who have the potential to achieve above expectations, but who, for whatever reason, are not demonstrating this

Once identified, teachers strive to meet the needs of these children in several ways, including differentiated planning and relevant enrichment opportunities.

Please find below links to various documents/ websites which may help support your child’s learning at home, particularly if you believe that they may have Higher Learning Potential.
