More Able, Gifted and Talented (MAGAT)

At Mousehold Infant and Nursery School we are committed to improving the skills of all staff in our school to achieve excellence in meeting the needs of MAGAT learners. Planning, teaching and assessment will allow for personalised learning to suit all individuals and ensures all have the opportunity to achieve their potential.  In keeping with our Growth Mindset focus, pupils should be given the chance to take risks and sometimes make mistakes. MAGAT pupils will experience a mixture of acceleration (moving through the curriculum at a faster rate than other pupils), enrichment (broadening study by including elements outside of the National Curriculum) and extension (studying the standard curriculum in more depth; increasing complexity and challenge) activities.  For further detail, please refer to our MAGAT policy.
