Sorry - this is one of the first threads I've posted, so I'm not sure whether there's any forum etiquette that I'm not aware of. Basically, I teach a Year 3 class in which there is a child whose parents think that he is extraordinarily gifted. The child is average, probably slightly below if I'm being honest, but the parents just won't accept that he's not 'top group' material and are continuously lobbying for him to be moved into my top group - he's achieving at a level which is quite a lot lower than they are, and it would be simply unfair to move him, besides which I generally don't move a child on a parental request. The parents are also obsessed with the idea of the 'Gifted and Talented' list, which the school still has in place and, again, constantly request that his name is added. They are also very keen to see what his 'enrichment' work is, and often bring me 'samples' of the 'work' he does at home - again, average to slightly below average for his cohort. I'm a fairly new teacher, and I just wondered how I should handle this - I think the child is going to be affected by it once he realises that he's not as academic as his parents are convinced he is, and I would love to find a way to put an end to their - sorry, I can't think of a better word to describe it - delusions. Any help gratefully received!
