ACADEMICALLY MORE ABLE STUDENTS
We provide specific learning opportunities and tailored support for our most able students. A student who is identified as academically more able will be informed and their parent(s) will be invited to attend a meeting in the Autumn Term. Academically more able students will be supported throughout their time at Erasmus Darwin Academy through our ‘ACE Programme’ that promotes academic achievement, challenge and extension activities.
In the classroom and for homework, academically more able students will be set tasks that enable them to continue to make progress well above expectations for most students nationally. In addition, a range of enrichment activities are available throughout the academic year, with each subject providing at least one calendared event.
Parental engagement is a priority in supporting our academically more able learners: regular communication and parents’ evenings are established to enable parents to work in partnership with the Academy.
