Identifying and challenging more able and talented (MAT) pupils: A comparative study in two south Wales primary schools
MetadataShow full item record
More able and talented (MAT)pupils form 20% of every school's population (Winstanley, 2004: Eyre and McLure, 2002; Qualification, Curriculum and Assessment Authority for Wales (ACCAC), 2003; Wales. Department for children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (DCELLS), 2008; Estyn, 2011b; BBC, 2011). This figure mirrors the population of pupils with special education needs (SEN). A range of interventions/provisions are in place to support pupils with SEN, allowing the pupils to access a broad curriculum. However theere is concern that teachers are expected to challenge the MAT pupils with littel support and guidance. The challenge of raising standards relies heavily upon teachers' knowledge and ability to further develop the skills of MAT pupils. This study compares the current identification strategies and provisions currently provided for the MAT pupils in two south Wales Primary Schools.
