How can you use these social and emotional leaflets for parents?

  • Have them in your Reception for parents to take.
  • Give them out to a parent if you are working with their child on one of the issues.
  • If you have a child on your waiting list, a friendly word with the parent and a leaflet may help their child until you have space.
  • Put them on any ELSA displays you have where parents might see them.
  • School might have asked you to do a table display for parents evening, so pop them on that display along with your ELSA leaflet.
  • If a teacher is struggling with one of the issues with one of their pupil, give them a leaflet. It might help them too.
  • Put a few in each class for the teacher to hand out to parents, as needed.

The leaflets are trifold so have six sides to them. They are to be printed duplex and instructions are given within the resource on how to do this using Adobe settings. The resource comes with a PDF to print where you can handwrite your contact details. It also has a file where you can edit the details in PowerPoint.

The margins do need to be cut off all the sides so the leaflet folds properly.
