Here at St Jude's C of E Schools, we believe we have a duty to the child andtheir family. Our whole school ethos revolves around supporting the whole child.If we have unhappy, or unsettled children, they are not in the right place to learn andwon't reach their potential.


At the infant school, Mrs Summerton is the ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) as well as the Parental Engagement Coordinator (PEC). Mrs Summerton is available in the afternoon to talk to parents who may be struggling in an area of parenting. This can be bedtime routines, fussy eaters, family breakdowns or children who were not behaving well at home.

At the junior school, Mrs Snow is the ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) and spends her afternoons meeting and chatting with those children who may need a bit of extra support.

Please speak with your child's class teacher if you feel that your child would benefit from receiving ELSA support.
