Understanding Your Child
Our first 'Understanding Your Child' course started in March 2016 and included parents from Trinity in addition to parents of children from other schools. This course is very well received and provides valuable insights into child development and behaviour.
If you would like to join the next group, please get in touch with Mr Pittaway or Mr Rowe who will be able to provide you with further details.
Emotional Literacy Support Assistant
Mrs Kate Coutts is our trained Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA). Mrs Coutts has received specialist training from the Educational Psychology Service on aspects of the following:
- Emotional awareness
- Anger management
- Social and friendship skills
ELSA is an initiative to support the emotional and mental health needs of pupils. We recognise that children learn better in school if their emotional and psychological needs are met.
There will always be children in our school who face life-challenges that might detract from their ability to engage wiht learning. At Trinity, we believe that if we give them a chance to think about their difficulties within the context of a safe and supportive relationship we can help and increase their resilience, providing them with strategies to overcome challenges.
If you feel that your child may benefit from, feel free to contact your child's classteacher, headteacher or Mrs Coutts.
