Gosport School Sport Partnership

Gifted & Talented

The aim of the gifted and talented strand is:

To improve the recognition of, and the support and provision for gifted and talented pupils in Physical Education and Sport.

There are three key areas of this work:

A. High Quality - Raising the quality of PE for gifted and talented young people

B. Support - ensuring appropriate personal development support for young talented performers in sport

C. Raising the quality of coaching and competition for talented performers in sport

The strand contributes to the 5 hour offer, primarily through High Quality PE and school sport provision.
The Junior Athlete Education framework is designed to help schools build effective support programmes for young talented performers in their schools.

It is essential that any support program is embedded into a school’s wider Gifted and Talented program, with a whole school approach, that focuses on personalisation and meeting the Every Child Matters  outcomes.

Below is a diagram which shows the interdependencies of G&T strategies and plans within a school environment.

Whole School G&T strategy

It is important to recognise giftedness in the full context of learning in all aspects of the curriculum and that talented is demonstrated as success in the performance in a particular sport. This distinction has been highlighted to recognise the difference between SPORT and PE.
