All Saints Church of England Primary School

"Guiding all our flock to flourish"

Mrs Smith- Nursery Nurse and Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA)

Since qualifying as a Nursery Nurse I have worked in a 4+ unit and a Special Needs school in Leicester City and as a childminder while my two children were young. Prior to working at All Saints I worked with the NHS School Nurse Team in the area for a number of years.


I have been working at All Saints since 2012 as a Nursery Nurse in EYFS with Miss Carte and latterly Miss Fraser too. I am now a trained ELSA and help children who sometimes need a little help with their emotions or who need support to understand and come to terms with bigger issues happening in their lives. Over the last couple of years I have also been trained as a Communication Champion and now deliver small group sessions to some children who need help with speech and language.


My role is truly rewarding to see how much the children grow in confidence, and maturity and develop into the lovely family of children we now have at school. It makes me feel very proud to see the children in the Upper Juniors and remember how they were when they started school.  It's a privilege to be a part of their journey.
