Hello and welcome to our new ELSA page! We are very excited to be able to share information with parents about Emotional Literacy Support on the school website. Over the coming months we hope to create a page full of ideas and helpful advice on how you can help your child; for example in areas such as self esteem, or perhaps to learn about calming techniques. We will also be recommending books that you may find useful and links to other websites for some self-help at home.
In ELSA we aim to provide support for a wide range of emotional needs:
Loss and bereavement

On the 31st January is Young Carer's Awareness Day. Current figures are that 1 in 5 secondary children have a caring role. The figures are 1 in 10 for children under the age of 10.

Personal care, such as helping someone dress.
Managing the family budget and collecting prescriptions.
