As a school, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils. We know that anyone may need additional emotional support at some point during their school life and when this happens we aim to offer support and advice for both the pupils and their parents/carers.

We are lucky enough to have two qualified Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSA) at Freeman CP School, Mrs Levett and Mrs Oxford, to support children with any social or emotional difficulties that they might be experiencing both at school and home.  ELSA is an initiative developed and supported by educational psychologists. It recognises that children learn better and are happier in school if their emotional needs are addressed.  We also have a Nurture Group and a Year 6 Well-Being Team who do activities at lunchtime with any children who need time out or quiet time such as colouring, calming jars, building with cubes and sensory activities.

Below are links to some external professionals who can support children and adults with their well-being and mental health and information regarding webinars on 'Raising Happy Resilient Children' and 'Parenting the Anxious Child'.
