ELSA Pod (children’s well-being)
We did it
On 23rd March 2021 we successfully raised ÂŁ2,959 ( + est. ÂŁ110.00 Gift Aid ) with 83 supporters in 35 days

We want to provide a pod where children can go to talk to an adult in a safe and private space to discuss any worries or problems they have.

by Friends of Mobberley in Mobberley, England, United Kingdom

Mobberley Primary School is a small school set in the heart of Cheshire. We have 200 pupils at the school. 

We would like to raise money to install a Wellbeing pod within the school playground. Our school has grown considerably in recent years and we simply don't have the space within the school for a dedicated and quiet space where children can talk in confidence to an adult. 

We have a dedicated ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) at our school. Mrs Knowles works tirelessley with the children who need that extra bit of help and support with understanding and coping with their feelings. Now, more than ever, her work is so incredibly important and we would like to be able to help as many children as possible. 

The external wellbeing pod will be a calm and safe environment where the children can talk about any concerns they have. The pod will be used for drop-in sessions and specific ELSA sessions that might include role-play, puppets, games or art and craft.  It will be open to all children at the school. 

The pod is a long term project and will be used for many years to come.
