We all need some support from time to time. There is no shame in admitting that everything is not ok. At John Hunt we always strive to support every member of our John Hunt family in the best way possible. Remember our school doors are always open for you (Unfortunately at the moment this is via telephone due to Covid) to come and speak to any member of staff.

In School we have our Designated Safeguarding Leads (Mrs Mole, Miss Devlin and Mrs Good)  also, we have Mrs Chapman who is our school ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant).

An ELSA is a specialist teaching assistant with a wealth of experience of working with children on a wide range of issues. ELSAs are trained and regularly supervised by the Educational Psychologists in the Local education authority. Their aim is to remove the barriers to learning and to have happy children in school and at home.
