We are raising money to purchase specialist resources for our newly developed emotional literacy room, to support our amazing SEN children.

by Acorns Special School in Preston, England, United Kingdom

Our dream is to fully equip our specialist Emotional Literacy room (ELSA) with resources to support our unique pupils to regulate and understand their emotions. We want to support our pupils to develop the skills needed to navigate their way through an already challenging world. The specialist resources' that we urgently need cost significant amounts of money to purchase. Ideally we would like to purchase relaxation beanbags, hand puppets, games, therapy dolls, small world toys and much more. These resources would support our pupils when disclosing possible past abuse, talking about issues difficult at home, to talk about bereavement and loss and past trauma. We are currently supporting children that have experienced bereavement of a parent, witnessed domestic violence and have a parent in prison. 

We also cover topics such as puberty, transition and positive friendships. Each session is tailored specifically to the child's individual needs and no two sessions are ever the same. As a school we are fully invested and have recently appointed a member of staff to support our pupils for three full days and we are looking to increase this in the near future. 

Your support would help shape the future for our young people and give our pupils the opportunities that you and I would otherwise take for granted.
