Parent Network for Educational Support
Coordinator: Sven MATZKE
Since 2017, the APEEE's Pedagogical Working Group has included a sub-group on Educational Support. In winter 2019, the sub-group established a network of parents with children on educational support. The aim of the network is to provide interested parents with relevant information and to organise dedicated meetings for an exchange of experience.

Parents within the Network for Educational Support expressed their interest to address the educational needs of gifted children in our school community. In January 2020, the PedGroup's Educational Support Group established a separate network of parents with gifted children with the view to create an effective educational support strategy for gifted pupils and to establish a support network for pupils and parents.

For both Primary and Secondary pupils, Section 16 specifically highlights that gifted students also need attention when it comes to their learning programme and the school's wish to explore and research more to be able to develop educational programmes that cater for each student.

The procedural document also refers to the situation of gifted pupils, defining them as pupils with “high ability in some or all areas, who may nevertheless also require special learning conditions to fulfil their educational potential”.
