Year 7 students have just found out if they are on the Gifted and Talented (G&T) list and they are their families came to a partnership meeting on Tuesday 24th February. Parents found out why their children have been placed on the list and what this means for them. Finally students received their YG&T packs and registered with the program so that they can access chat rooms, extra support and resources. Students also heard a little introduction to the extra support available in SEAL based PSHE sessions and an exciting Challenge day planned for 24th March 2009.
