Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA)

Emotional literacy is the ability to understand, process and appropriately express emotions. Our ELSA works with children on increased self-awareness, self-esteem and resilience. Pupils are referred to the ELSA by class teachers through CHAT. The ELSA liaises with the child’s teacher and teaching assistants regarding the desired outcomes. Meeting with the child once a week, the ELSA will deliver an individualised programme to support the development of emotional literacy.
