The Smile & SEA Rooms
Mrs Cooper and Mrs Shaw are trained ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistants) who specialise in helping children with social skills development, bereavement, self esteem, anger management and dealing with conflict. The Smile and SEA rooms help school to support the emotional needs of our pupils. There will always be children in school facing life challenges that detract from their ability to engage with learning and some will require greater support to increase their emotional literacy with others.
Having the two rooms allows the ELSA's to work on a one to one basis with children or even with small groups of children. The SEA room is designed with special lighting, music and objects to help children with poor communication skills or provide them somewhere warm and welcoming to relax.
