Elsa Support

We are very proud of the ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support) work that takes place here at Newlands.

From time to time, some children might need extra support or help related to their emotional development. Our trained ELSA ‘helps children and young people learn to understand their emotions and respect the feelings of those around them. They provide the time and space for pupils to think about their personal circumstances and how they manage them.’

For more information please see the information booklet here

Those who have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties are particularly well supported through one-to-one support that helps them to explore how they feel and understand how they can change their responses.
