ELSA Provision

An ELSA is a specialist teaching assistant with a wealth of experience of working with children.  ELSA's are trained and regularly supervised by the Education Psychologists in your Local Education Authority.  An ELSA is a warm and caring person who wants to help your child feel happy in school and reach their potential educationally and emotionally.  Their aim is to remove the barriers to learning and to happy children in school and at home.  


Within our school we have one member of staff fully trained as an Emotional Literacy Support Assistant.  The ELSA can support with: 

  • Loss and bereavement
  • Self-esteem
  • Social skills
  • Emotions
  • Friendship issues
  • Relationships
  • Anger management
  • Behaviour
  • Anxiety
  • Bullying
  • Conflict
  • Relaxation techniques
