ELSA – North Somerset/Cheddar/Bridgwater
ELSAs are trained to plan and deliver programmes of support for pupils in their school. The majority of ELSA work is expected to be delivered on an individual basis, but sometimes small group work might be appropriate. ELSAs might be asked to work with pupils who appear anxious, shy, sad, or angry. They might also support children to develop social skills, friendship skills, or self-esteem.

DSL Briefings
It is preferable that setting's D/DSL’s attend all three sessions offered over the academic year, or send someone with safeguarding knowledge from their setting. You do not need to attend the briefing nearest to you if you live/travel elsewhere that’s more convenient. It is our aim in the briefings to have safeguarding updates, and Ofsted news linked to safeguarding and information on contextual safeguarding (local and outside of school risks). This is because this is a vital part of Keeping Children Safe in Education 2019. We will also have speakers from other agencies such as police, csc etc. There will also be a Q and A slot for you to raise any issues.
