Emotional Literacy Support (ELSA)

Our Emotional Literacy Support Assistant, Jenny Pullen, has been trained by Educational Psychologists to plan and deliver programmes of support to pupils who are experiencing temporary or longer term additional emotional needs.


What is emotional literacy?
• Understanding and coping with the feelings about ourselves and others
• Developing high self esteem and positive interactions with others
• Being emotionally literate helps children to focus better on their learning


Some of the areas the ELSA may work on:
• Recognising emotions
• Self esteem
• Social skills
• Friendship skills
• Anger management
• Anxiety
• Loss and bereavement
