Primary Music Network Meeting (Summer)
Ofsted findings show that the quality of subject leadership in music was a vital factor in improving provision and with an increased focus on a broad and balanced curriculum these sessions are invaluable for Music Leaders. With musical opportunities, singing and instrumental programmes now a feature in most schools, successful co-ordination of this exciting and essential part of the curriculum has never been so important. It would therefore be beneficial if the same person/s attend each termly afternoon session as there is an element of developmental work that carries throughout the year. Excellent feedback over the years from teachers and Headteachers show that these sessions are highly valued and an important line of support for the development of music within school.

Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSA)
ELSA is an intervention that was developed and is supported by Educational Psychologists who apply psychological knowledge of social and emotional development to particular areas of need in order to promote the emotional wellbeing of children and young people. The six days of ELSA training consists of the following: - Introduction to ELSA, target setting and emotional literacy in schools - Building self-esteem and resilience - Building motivation and engagement; social skills - Emotional regulation; ASD - Loss and bereavement; the use of stories in ELSA work - Key skills to deliver the ELSA role; action planning with line managers In addition to the training days, this package includes two group supervision sessions. This provides ELSAs with clinical casework supervision and the opportunity to gain ideas, resources and support from Educational Psychologists and their fellow ELSAs. The cost of the package (six days of training and two group supervision sessions) is £550 per person. To help you to identify members of staff appropriate for the course, it may be helpful to consider that an ELSA needs to: - Have a warm personality and be able to stay calm under pressure - Be able to gain the confidence of children who may present as being outwardly challenging or socially withdrawn - Be happy to work independently and show initiative - Be creative in planning interventions and efficient in recording ELSA work - Be eager to learn and develop new skills (Upon completion of training, there is a separate supervision SLA available for purchase at £250 for half termly supervision sessions to support trained ELSAs in maintaining the necessary skills and knowledge to undertake their role. Please note that although this is an optional additional SLA, ongoing clinical supervision for ELSAs is a requirement for them to continue using the ELSA title.)
