This reconstruction, based on a real case study, shows how the student is excelling at maths, but becomes reclusive and socially isolated. The head of maths puts pressure on both student and teacher for him take his GCSE exam in Year 8.

The video questions actions should be taken by the teacher and head of maths in order to resolve the dilemma.

The video is designed to be used as a springboard for discussion between staff on how this issue should best be dealt with.
