The national gifted and talented programme is designed to meet the needs of all children and young people identified as gifted and talented by their schools. Currently some 91 per cent. of secondary schools and 65 per cent. of primary schools are identifying about 733,000 gifted and talented learners. We want all schools to identify their gifted and talented pupils now, so giving a national population of around one million. We want all to join the new Young Gifted and Talented Learner Academy (YG&T). Every school should already have access to an identified leading teacher for gifted and talented, a lead professional responsible for securing high quality personalised learning and support.
