Gifted and talented children are those who have one or more abilities developed to a level significantly ahead of their year group (or with the potential to develop these abilities).

In England the term ‘gifted’ refers to those pupils who are capable of excelling in academic subjects such as English or History. ‘Talented’ refers to those pupils who may excel in areas such as PE, drama or art.

Providing for gifted and talented pupils is a question of equity: like all children, they have a right to an education that is suited to their particular needs and abilities. Gifted and talented children need to be presented with work that challenges, stretches and excites them on a daily basis. Teachers can differentiate the curriculum to achieve this, so that the children are not placed in a different setting or year group. It is very important for the social development of children that they remain with their peers.

It is important to note that some gifted and talented pupils may be intellectually able, achieving at a particularly high level, but who may have real ability in certain areas.

The Department of Educations and Science, in England, has collated the following list of general – though not definitive - characteristics of gifted, talented and more able pupils.

He or she may:

  • be a good reader
  • be very articulate or verbally fluent for their age
  • give quick verbal responses (which can appear cheeky)
  • have a wide general knowledge
  • learn quickly
  • be interested in topics which one might associate with an older child
  • communicate well with adults - often better than with their peer group
  • have a range of interests, some of which are almost obsessions
  • show unusual and original responses to problem-solving activities
  • prefer verbal to written activities
  • be logical
  • be self taught in their own interest areas
  • have an ability to work things out in their head very quickly
  • have a good memory that they can access easily
  • be artistic
  • be musical
  • excel at sport
  • have strong views and opinions
  • have a lively and original imagination / sense of humour
  • be very sensitive and aware
  • focus on their own interests rather than on what is being taught
  • be socially adept
  • appear arrogant or socially inept
  • be easily bored by what they perceive as routine tasks
  • show a strong sense of leadership
  • not necessarily be well-behaved or well liked by others
