Author: Edited by Jane West

G&T Primary Update is written by, and for, people with a special interest in the management and development of G&T programmes in primary schools – and in the needs of pupils.

Many articles are by other teachers who have been in your situation and can offer real advice and practical suggestions; others by researchers and people who have dedicated their professional careers to the needs of more able pupils.

G&T Primary Update also offers professional support by keeping you informed of new ideas and creative solutions to use in your school. And it draws on the latest professional research and best practice in schools to help you improve your school’s policy and provision for G&T pupils.

Regular features include:

  • Overviews of the latest research and policy developments relating to G&T provision.
  • Case studies and interviews highlighting examples of successful practice in other schools.
  • Tips and practical guidance from G&T specialists and researchers across the country.
  • In-depth focus on the management issues faced by G&T coordinators.
  • Ideas in primary schools.
