Northern Federation

Wellbeing & ELSA support

We have 2 amazing ELSAs (Emotional Literacy Support Assistants) and a School Counsellor who work in the Federation to support children who have been referred by class teachers, in 1:1 sessions. They have received training from  Educational Psychologists support the emotional development of our children at school. E.L.S.A's help children to understand their emotions and of those around them.

Here you will find some strategies to use at home to support your child's wellbeing.
