Stretching the literacy skills of more able and talented pupils
Through the prism of multiculturalism, Blaenavon Heritage VC Primary and its partners, Garnteg Primary, Victoria Village Primary, Cwmffrwdoer and Abersychan High School, have been stretching the literacy skills of their more able and talented learners.
