At Potley Hill, Mrs Horton is our ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant).
An ELSA 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 the Local education authority. An ELSA is a warm and caring person who wants to help your child feel happy in school and to reach their potential educationally. Their aim is to remove the barriers to learning and to have happy children in school and at home.
If you feel that you child would benefit from ELSA support, please speak to your child's class teacher.
