The Nest

The transformation from bus to, "The Nest"

Our Aim 

There will be some children in our school whose ability to learn is adversely affected by emotional and psychological difficulties. If we give them a chance to think about these difficulties within the context of a relationship that is supportive and safe, we can help them become more resilient in the face of adversity. As they feel better able to recognise and manage their feelings, they will engage more readily with the learning challenges presented to them in school. 


ELSA’s can help with...

 Loss and bereavement – Self Esteem - Social Skills – Emotions - Friendship Issues – Relationships - Anger management - Behavior – Anxiety – Bullying – Conflict - Relaxation techniques 

Lego Therapy is also shown to benefit children with ASD, SEN and EAL


Lego Therapy 

Lego Therapy is a way to help children to learn how to communicate with other, express their feelings, develop problem solving and help change their behavior towards others. It is the structure of this approach with its clearly defined approach that helps children who have difficulties socializing to develop communication and interaction skills. 

How Lego Therapy works 

Sessions can be a small group with children who are the same age/ability or 1 to 1 depending on the needs of the children 

Lego Therapy helps with... 

Improving and developing self esteem 

Self-calming strategies

Socializing with other children 



ELSA’s (Emotional Literacy Support Assistants) help children and young people learn to understand their emotion and respect the feelings of those around them. ELSA’s are regularly supervised and work closely with the local educational psychologist. An ELSA is a warm and caring person who wants to help your child feel happy in school by removing the barriers to learning. 


How ELSA works 

Regular sessions during the school week for 30 – 45 minutes on a 7 – 10 week program. 

Sessions can be in groups or 1 to 1 depending to the child’s individual needs. 

The sessions will include time to talk in a warm relaxing environment with some practical activities. 

Pupil’s progress is reviewed on a half termly basis
