High Potential and Gifted Education

High Potential and Gifted Education.

At Ulladulla High School we have undertaken a full review of our current systems to ensure we meet the needs of our High Potential and embed Gifted Education within our school.

The High Potential and Gifted Education Policy promotes engagement and challenge for every UHS student, regardless of background, in every school across intellectual, creative, social-emotional and physical domains. It supports every student to achieve their educational potential, through talent development opportunities and differentiated teaching and learning practices to ensure that their specific learning and wellbeing needs are met.

Year 8 HPS Program

In stage 4, classes are organised upon identified needs and abilities into strategic clusters of students within each class. Prior to entry into Stage 4 the majority of student sit the ACER General Ability Test. This test, along with teacher professional judgement, is used as one method and clustered with other similar ability students. Teaches differentiate their lesson content and teaching strategies according to students identified needs. This approach has been carefully developed and is focussed on ensuring (Particularly High Potential students) reach their potential.

Attached is information and questions answered about our Stage 4 HPS program.

And an information video students and their parents in Stage 4.
