Talocher School

Welcome to Talocher School | Croeso i Ysgol Talocher

Located just a few miles from the market town of Monmouth, Gwent, Talocher School is an independent, specialist day provision for girls and boys aged 7 to 19 years with an autistic spectrum condition (ASC), behavioural, emotional and social difficulty (BESD) and/or associated complex need.

The school provides a warm, welcoming and relaxed environment for young people who are a resident within an Aspris Children’s Services residential home or as a day pupil, who are unable to attend mainstream education because of their additional learning needs (ALN).

When young people first arrive at Talocher School, many learners are dealing with a range of difficulties, compounded by their disaffection towards learning, their negative attitudes towards authority and a history of interrupted education, including exclusion from mainstream schools. Due to these difficulties, many of our learners have previously been out of school for prolonged periods of time.

Our vision is to enable learners to acknowledge and cope with their specific difficulties and assist them in fulfilling their potential. We achieve this through providing positive full-time education and accessing an adapted version of the Curriculum for Wales, whilst incorporating broader vocational and enrichment elements to meet the needs of each learner.
