Dalton school wins Cumbria honours
Published at 01:00, Thursday, 01 April 2004
A FURNESS secondary school is leading the way when it comes to helping pupils’ progress.
Dowdales School, in Dalton, is the first in Cumbria — and one of just 18 nationally — to win Ambassador School Status for Gifted and Talented Pupils.
The award was given by the National Academy at the University of Warwick.
Headteacher Liz Moffatt said she was pleased another strand of the school’s work had been recognised.
Asked why she thought the school had won the ambassador status award, Mrs Moffatt said: “We’re doing a lot to meet the needs of individual children, without appearing to be elitist, or separating them out, or limiting others.”
She added that there was an “energy group” of department representatives who discuss provision for gifted and talented pupils.
There were also various pupil programmes such as the More Able Child plan.
