Vivienne Parry continues her quest to find out what is normal.

Vivienne finds out how ‘gifted’ children are measured and by whom. If a child is in the top five to 10 per cent of their school in an academic subject, they may have been identified as ‘gifted’ and put on the government’s new national register of gifted and talented children.

Vivienne discovers that it depends on the discretion of each school to decide this status and talks to pupils and teachers about whether being marked out as different – even in a positive way – just makes children want to be normal.
