ELSA Emotional Literacy Support Assistants

Schools’ experiences of implementing the ELSA programme

This video discusses the following: 

  • How are the children identified?
  • How do you measure progress?
  • What works well? / What doesn’t work as well?
  • How has the school supported you?
  • What changes have you seen in pupils?
  • How is ELSA different and how does it complement other intervention programmes?
