Back to these paper assessments
A few people were asking about having a section for anxiety so I decided to revamp the whole ELSA assessments and split it into sections. You can use all of it but also you could only use the bits that you deem to be relevant. I haven’t posted images of all of them but you can download the zipped pack from here: ELSA ASSESSMENT 2017**Please note this needs opening on a computer or laptop.
There is also a data sheet and a pupil assessment in the pack. I am always open to comments so please do email me if you think something should be added/taken out etc. firstname.lastname@example.org
A person or persons who know the child the best should fill in these forms, NOT the ELSA, unless of course you know them better than anyone else and perhaps work in class with them. It is really important to speak to parents too because sometimes behaviours from home may be interfering with the child at school or there maybe some background information that needs adding to the forms. This may inform your planning. I have added 3 targets to the bottom of each sheet. This will help you decide on what you are going to do with them. You can’t tackle everything at once so do it in stages. Remember there are loads of resources on this website both free and paid (very low cost) which can help you to focus on what the child needs support with.
For example if a child is struggling with growth mindset and behaviour for learning then have a look at the MINDSET PLANNING. If a child is struggling with friendships then look at the FRIENDSHIP PLANNING. If a child has self-esteem problems then try the SELF-ESTEEM LAPBOOK or if they have problems with anxiety then try the WORRIES AND FEARS LAPBOOK or the ANXIETY INTERVENTION. Emotional awareness can be worked on with many resources on the website. Some examples are MINDMONSTERS or EMOTIONS EARLY YEARS. A child with anger issues could be taught one to one with the ANGER LAPBOOK. Please do look around the site there are literally hundreds of resources that might be helpful.
In the pack:
- EMOTIONAL AWARENESS
- FRIENDSHIPS AND RELATIONSHIPS
- GROWTH MINDSET AND BEHAVIOUR FOR LEARNING
- SOCIAL SKILLS
- ASSESSMENT DATA
- PUPIL SELF ASSESSMENT
A school has asked me for an editable version but unfortunately I cannot do this. I could tailor it to your school, add your logo if you do so wish. The copyright notice must stay on the sheets though.
There would be a small charge of £5 payable by paypal for my time and use of the resource under your school name.
