As a learning community, Robertson values the diverse gifts of its members. Our aim is to provide a supportive learning environment where gifts can be recognised and nurtured so that talent is developed.

Giftedness is commonly characterised by an ability to learn quickly and with relative ease as well as achieve high standards when compared to same-age peers. The very nature of these learners suggests that a different response is required to support them in their learning. Gifted learners need opportunity to demonstrate and develop their learning. Without recognition, these children can face unique difficulties that can affect their motivation, social emotional well-being and lead to underachievement at school.

At Robertson, we have been developing a whole school approach to the education of gifted students for over fifteen years. Our goals for gifted students are that they are not only recognised and valued but also that their self-esteem is nurtured so they can become independent, self-directed, life-long learners. Our in-class provision builds self-esteem and self-understanding with opportunities for differentiation, enrichment, extension and acceleration.
