Talbot House School
We pride ourselves in the ability to re-engage young people with learning by offering a broad and balanced curriculum which celebrates success and achievement.
Talbot House provides a variety of skills training and qualifications, preparing students for further education, employment and social aspects of adult life.
Autumn Term 2021
I would like to welcome back all our pupils at the start of the new academic year. I really hope that this year we can regain some normality. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and is now ready to return to school.
As you are aware, schools have been asked to carry out lateral tests on site twice at the start of the new academic year; we will be doing this during the pupils’ first week back. Our staff will also continue to self-test twice a week. Our risk assessment has been updated and this can be found on our website. We continue to practise hand washing and/or sanitising of hands regularly throughout the day. We will also ensure that there is good ventilation across the whole school. We understand that there will be times throughout the autumn term that pupils will feel unwell (not necessarily Covid related), can I ask that you inform the school and we will be happy to discuss further the best action to take.
You will be receiving a letter to explain that the immunisation team will be coming into school in October to offer pupils the nasal flu vaccine. Please return your consent if you wish your child to receive this. Other important dates to remember are Friday 8th October and Monday 1st November which are teacher training days. We will remind you again nearer the time.
If you would like to join our closed group Facebook page, please request this and we will be happy to accept you. We share lots of information on the page and showcase what we do in school. Our newsletters will also resume at the end of each half term, we look forward to sharing these with you.

Aim of the School
Our aim is to nurture, inspire and prepare our pupils for adulthood. We want our pupils to become motivated and successful young people; who are equipped to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. To do this we create a positive, supportive and stimulating environment which promotes the development of children's academic, spiritual, social, moral and academic learning.
At Talbot House School we personalise learning to ensure we meet the needs specified for each child, we deliver a "stage not age" approach for our children, who have developed complex and high dependency needs.
