ELSA  supporting social and emotional aspects  for  Learning.  In a nutshell this really means that if a child arrives at school happy and calm, they will be in a better frame of mind to learn.  If they are distressed for any reason they will have too much on their mind and not be able to focus in the classroom.

The ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) intervention is designed to support the emotional needs of our pupils. We have trained teaching assistants who develop and deliver individualised support programmes to meet the emotional needs of children in their care. We recognise that children learn better and are happier in school if their emotional needs are also addressed. This intervention is now widely implemented by educational psychologists across Britain.
