2)       Relationship Based Play sessions were held with parents of our Reception cohort and 32/48 parents attended. The attendance at these sessions was very high (95%). Further 1:1 sessions were held in school for targeted pupils who needed this support. Of the 27 children who have benefited from RBP sessions, 19 have shown significant improvements in behaviour, social skills and/or self-esteem.

3)       The Language and Play group has proved very popular with a waiting list in place. 60% of attendees are from our target group and parents have provided regular, positive feedback to the LSA running the group.

Employ 2 x 0.4 LSA to run ELSA, RBP and Talkabout sessions to support the emotional literacy of our most vulnerable pupils.

 

1)       22 target pupils benefited from ELSA sessions over the 2018-2019 academic year. Of these, 19 reported feeling more confident and 16 have showed significant improvements in terms of their emotional wellbeing as reported by parents, school behaviour logs and teacher feedback.

2)       Talkabout sessions were run 2 times per week with up to 4 children in each group. Talkabout is still at an early stage so there is now a need to monitor its effectiveness through a more consistent assessment.
