Providing for Diverse Learning Needs

GaTe Definition
Gifted and Talented students at Bayfield School are those who demonstrate exceptional performance (significantly beyond that typically seen in students of the same age) or who have outstanding potential in one or more of the following areas:
  • General or specific academic ability
  • Creativity
  • Leadership ability/social skills
  • Visual or performing arts, including cultural arts
  • Physical ability
  • Technological ability
We recognise that some students have outstanding abilities related to their specific cultural beliefs, values and practices.

We also recognise that some students may be Twice Exceptional which means that they may have gifts significantly beyond their peers in conjunction with a learning disability.
