Health and Wellbeing
Promoting children’s emotional well-being and resilience forms a key part of every activity at St Nicholas Primary School. Despite this, children (and parents) will encounter challenges as they grow and develop into young adults.
We are here to help you support your child.
Please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher or Mrs Law, SENDCo, who will be able to suggest or provide resources, and signpost appropriate support provided within school or by external agencies.
Mrs Law can be contacted by email firstname.lastname@example.org or via the school office (01380 850391)
ELSA - Emotional Literacy Support Assistant.
To support children to learn how to manage challenges and difficult emotions we have a trained Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) who work both within classes and with individual children to provide support as needed and respond quickly to changes. Our ELSA is Mrs L Lewis. She is supported by our SENDCo and Mental Health Lead, Mrs Law, and attends regular training and supervision to ensure that her skills are constantly updated.
If you feel that your child would benefit from additional Emotional Literacy Support, please discuss this with your child's class teacher or Mrs Law.
