An ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) is a specialist teaching assistant with a wealth of experience of working with children. ELSAs are trained and regularly supervised by the Educational Psychologists in your Local Authority. An ELSA is a warm and caring person who wants to help your child feel happy at school and to reach their full potential educationally. Their aim is to remove the barriers to learning and to have happy children in school and at home. We are very lucky to have the lovely Mrs Mercer as our ELSA!
