Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning

, , Leave a comment

Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) provided a whole school approach to developing social and emotional skills in children. It was developed as a curriculum resource using 5 key qualities or skills: self-awareness, managing feelings, motivation, empathy and social skills.

These skills are vitally important in learning, managing one’s own behaviour and succeeding in the classroom/school. SEAL aimed to also increase attendance, reduce exclusion and increase staff effectiveness.

This resource has now been archived but can be found at: https://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20110812101121/http://nsonline.org.uk/node/87009

SEAL has enjoyed the majority of it’s success in Primary settings but has valid applications to secondary work also.
