This includes children who have been identified as Academically More Able within the school setting who have the potential to achieve in a wide range of academic subjects, the arts or leadership, those who are Dual and Multiple Exceptional (high ability coupled with a disability or learning difficulty) and the profoundly gifted. Established in 1967, we provide parents, carers and professionals with the confidence and tools they need to help these children thrive. We give them support and specialist advice covering a wide range of issues such as lack of self esteem, underachievement or challenging behaviour. In addition, we provide opportunities for fun, friendship and challenge outside the classroom. Most importantly, we celebrate the achievements and potential of these amazing children. Our aim is to enable every child with high learning potential to grow in confidence, thrive and achieve fulfilment. www.potentialplusuk.org www.i-explore.net suk.org *This is the term preferred by Potential Plus POTENTIAL PLUS UK T 01908 646433 E amazingchildren@potentialplusuk.org A Suite 1.6, Challenge House Sherwood Drive, Bletchley Milton Keynes MK3 6DP CHARITY NUMBER 313182
