Hello I am Mrs Trousdale the Learning Mentor at Christ Church!
I am the school ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) which entails meeting with children for one to one sessions to support their wellbeing.
I can also offer a TAF (Team around the family) or represent the child and family as part of a TAF for families who feel they require additional support. .
I am the designated Safeguarding Lead so will deal with any safeguarding issues that may arise.
I am a licensed practitioner to deliver the 123 magic parenting programme.
I am the lead for projects that support children through transitions and raise their aspirations once they leave primary school.
I often meet with parents who are having difficulties at home and put support strategies in place to support them to make improvements.
I monitor attendance and will send letters of support to put strategies in place to improve attendance.
I make referrals to appropriate agencies when our families need support beyond what we can offer such as young carers and school health.
If you feel there is an area I can help you in then please come in or ring school to book an appointment.
