We currently have one member of staff who is fully trained and one who is working towards becoming an Emotional Literacy Support Assistant or ELSA.

An ELSA receives training from an Educational Psychologist from whom we receive on going support. An ELSA recognises that a child will learn better and will be happier in school if their emotional needs are met. Click on the following link to learn more about the work of an ELSA.
