Your school is applying for Gold School Membership of Potential Plus UK, a national charity that supports the social, emotional and learning needs of children with high learning potential, often termed 'gifted and talented' or 'academically more able' within the school environment. Gold School membership is a recognition by the school of the importance of supporting its pupils with high learning potential (HLP), a commitment by the school that it will work in partnership with parents and carers to maximise the potential of HLP children, and a way of working with parents to get the best from this relationship for the benefit of the HLP child.

As a significant emphasis of Gold School membership is the positive relationship with parents and carers, we request that the school involves you in the application process by inviting you to complete this short online questionnaire. Thank you for your time.
