*What is a Learning Mentor?

Our learning mentor sometimes works with individual children and small groups to work on issues such as friendship, confidence, anger and other issues that may have be impacting as a result of things that have occurred at home.

*What is an ELSA?

An ELSA (emotional literacy support assistant) develops and delivers emotional literacy support to pupils who have difficulties understanding, identifying and managing emotions so that they can develop these skills and become more emotionally resilient.
