Code: SCH/21/45 Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) Training

What is an ELSA?
Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSAs) are Teaching Assistants (TAs) who have been trained by Educational Psychologists to have a robust understanding of social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. They are able to plan and implement evidence-based individual and group interventions in schools.

How can an ELSA help your school?

  • Provides evidence of how your school is improving social, emotional and mental health needs
  • Improves outcomes for children and young people from disadvantaged groups
  • Makes effective use of pupil premium funding (other streams of funding may also be used)
  • Schools are often highly effective in whole school policies and class-wide interventions. It is more challenging to create and facilitate group and individual interventions for SEMH needs. ELSAs can meet this requirement to support the holistic development of children and young people.

Course Content
  • Emotional Literacy including managing difficult emotions (e.g. anger)
  • Self-esteem including resilience
  • Active listening, reflective and communication skills
  • Social skills and friendships
  • Writing therapeutic and social stories
  • Loss and bereavement

Code: SCH/20/66 Year 6 Peterborough English Challenge

Audience
Year 6 Teachers and Pupils

Description

The Peterborough challenge has been developed to generate a buzz of excitement around English for Year 6 pupils, as well as helping to inspire them, enthuse teachers and engage parents.

Schools are invited to enter a team of four Year 6 children who are able to work collaboratively during a heat that will consist of four rounds - three Team Rounds and a Memory Round.

Teams will need to work together to find answers to a range of questions, utilising their knowledge and skills from across the English curriculum. The heats, which may have up to six teams competing against each other, are held after school, in venues across Peterborough.

NB: Teachers, parents and carers are invited and encouraged to attend heats with their children so that they can be engaged in discussions around English.

The winners from each heat are automatically invited to the final, which is being held in the Town Hall Reception Room on Tuesday 2nd February 2021. Other high scoring teams will also be invited to take part in the final and one team will ultimately become the English Challenge Champions in 2021.

Cost Details
£40 per school team.*
