Special Educational Needs - ELSA
Hi, my name is Mrs Jo Shaw and I am the St Martin's School Emotional Literacy Support Assistant.
My sessions are held on a Monday, Tuesday and Friday afternoon.
ELSA sessions at St Martin's are made up of a 6 week course and are tailored to meet individual needs. On some occasions it is beneficial for a child to be involved in group sessions.
One the 6 week course has been completed the individual will stay under the pastoral care of the ELSA through regular touch base sessions.
Teachers and parents alike can refer a child for the ELSA programme. Children cannot see the school ELSA without parental permission.
There is currently a waiting list for new referrals.
New ELSA drop in sessions are now available on a Monday and Friday lunchtime.
