Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA)

Alison Monk is our school child and family worker and trained Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA). 

What is ELSA?

ELSA is a targeted intervention to support children's emotional and social development. Children will typically attend 6-8 1-1 or group sessions to support them with an identified need. Through accessing ELSA children will learn and develop the skills and strategies to cope with life's challenges.

ELSA can support children with 

  • Increasing their Emotional Vocabulary and developing Emotional Literacy
  • Self Esteem
  • Social skills
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Friendship issues
  • Relationships
  • Managing strong emotions
  • Anxiety
  • Growth Mindset
  • Building Resilience
  • Loss and bereavement.

We currently have a waiting list of children waiting to receive support from ELSA. If you think that your child may benefit from accessing ELSA support then please contact Kerry Middleditch via the Pastoral Team email
