How can parent/carers help?

Most Able children often show signs of advanced development from an early age. Parents will probably notice that their child is more able than his or her peers, and this will usually be confirmed by friends, health visitors, doctors and playgroup teachers. Most Able characteristics can include a wide vocabulary, a powerful memory, intense curiosity and concentration, a wide general knowledge, a vivid imagination and strong feelings and emotions. 

Parents can support children in a variety of ways, such as taking them to museums and galleries, actively encouraging their hobbies, reading to them and developing their curiosity through questioning them. Most Able children often like playing games and solving puzzles, and enjoy interacting both with adults and their peers.

Strong links with parents/carers is an essential component to Harris Academy Beckenham’s Most Able policy.Most Able photo 3
