Support for Schools

How can Potential Plus UK help you?

Potential Plus UK is a national not-for-profit organisation that works with governors, senior leaders, teachers and teaching assistants to ensure that every child with high learning potential* can grow in confidence, thrive and achieve social, emotional and academic fulfilment.

*High learning potential is our preferred term. Your school may be using a different term such as ‘gifted and talented’, ‘academically more able’ or ‘most able’.

We help schools and academies in all sectors and all phases to support children and young people:

  • with exceptional abilities;
  • who have the ability to attain highly, but who, for whatever reason, are not attaining at that level;
  • who are dual or multiple exceptional (high ability with a special educational need or disability);
  • who are profoundly gifted (approximately 0.01% of learners).

We believe in:

  • an appropriate and challenging education for every child and young person;
  • supporting teachers in their desire to better understand the complex needs of children with high learning potential;
  • supporting teachers to identify and provide for high potential learners, including able underachievers, dual and multiple exceptional learners, and able students from disadvantaged backgrounds;
  • the importance of parents and carers as full partners in the child’s education.
