Extra-Curricular Activities
Every child’s wellbeing is central to successful learning. Social and
Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) are explored through both
structured lessons and the broader curriculum. We have an experienced
teamtrainedtosupport yourchild’semotional development inpartnership
with parents. We talk to parents promptly about any concerns, so that
they can be addressed quickly and effectively. Your child’s safety is
important to us and our outstanding first aid provision has been praised
by both parents and Ofsted.
Wellbeing
“We have specialist music
tutors who come in to teach
us. They are really calm and
helpful, which helps you get
better.”
“We learn about serious issues
in school. Sometimes we learn
about them in PSHCE lessons
and sometimes through special
weeks like ‘Refugee Week’.”
Talbot prides itself on its inclusive ethos. We strive to ensure that every
child is encouraged to be their best, according to their individual needs.
Teaching and other broader activities are designed to capture imagination and harness talents. A range of
interventions are in place for those needing additional learning or emotional support, as well as those requiring an
extra level of challenge. Our strengths in developing a truly inclusive school were acknowledged when we were awarded the
Inclusion Chartermark. We rely on our parents and carers to extend this inclusive ethos within the wider school community.
Inclusion
“No one is left out in school.
If there is a big problem that
you can’t solve yourself, the
teachers will help sort it out.”
