Find examples of policies for the most able, more able or gifted and talented pupils from primary and secondary schools. Use them for inspiration if you're writing or reviewing your own policy.

Please note: schools tend to use a number of different terms when referring to higher-achieving pupils. These can include more able, most able, and gifted and talented pupils – or a combination of these terms (as you'll see below).
