Emotional Literacy Support Assistants
We are pleased to inform you, Willowcroft now have four qualified Emotional Support Assistants: Amanda Jones, Terry Jones, Sam Collins and Tracy Hammond. Our staff have been trained by Educational Psychologists to plan and deliver programmes of support to pupils who are experiencing temporary or longer term emotional additional needs. The course covered social skills, emotions, bereavement, social stories and therapeutic stories, anger management, self-esteem, counselling skills such as solution focused and friendship.
ELSA work is delivered on an individual or small group work basis.
Sessions are fun, we can use a range of activities such as games, role play with puppets or art and craft. ELSA sessions take place in our very own ‘ELSA room’ which provides a calm, safe place for the child to feel supported and nurtured.
