Even within a single local education authority, schools differ greatly in their attitude to the very able.
We moved our children (both of whom are within the top 2 per cent studied by Mr Marshall) from one county primary school to another only seven miles away.
The latter has an excellent whole-school policy for able children, involving differentiation in class and extension groups. Our children are happy, fulfilled, normal children whose educational needs are, at last, being met.
