Thames joins NACE

The National Association for Able Children in Education (NACE) is dedicated to supporting schools across every aspect of provision for more able learners.  Their guiding principles match the ethos and values at Thames to develop fully the potential in all our pupils, many of whom are very able. Some of NACE’s core principles are:

  • Addressing the needs of more able learners will raise achievement for a much wider group of learners.
  • Providing for more able learners is not about labelling, but about creating a curriculum and learning opportunities which allow all children to flourish.
  • Ability can be revealed across a range of specific domains and not only in traditional academic subjects.
  • An ethos of high expectations and aspirations is a central plank for any providing for more able learners.

Our membership gives us access to dedicated teaching resources, guidance, support and training, enabling teachers to attain the best from able pupils in the everyday classroom, whilst enabling all pupils to flourish and achieve.
