Mrs Astle


Hi I'm Mrs Astle,


I am the Emotional Support Worker at school.  I am a qualified ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant)  and have been trained to deliver a variety of different interventions to support the children's needs across the school.


 My role includes:

  • In charge of all Young Carers in school.
  • Supporting children of military families during times of parental deployment and transition in and out of school
  • Organising and running the induction process for new children who join our school during the school year as well as assessing their learning.
  • Running Bits and Pieces Club. Membership is by invitation only to help children who need a break from the playground or need support socially.
  • Facilitating worry,anxiety and anger programmes
  • Drawing and talking therapy interventions
  • Trained to help Bereaved children
  • Emotional support for children going through difficult times.
  • Supporting mental well being
  • Co-ordinating the PAT dog sessions.


Many of the interventions are of a short term nature in order to support individuals with school related issues. There are occasions when it is necessary to operate a waiting list if demand is high.


If parents have concerns about their child's emotional /social well being, the class teacher should be the first point of contact. The teacher will decide if it is appropriate to refer to me for additional support.
