Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL)
SEAL is a comprehensive approach to promoting the social and emotional skills that underpin effective learning, positive behaviour, regular attendance, staff effectiveness and the emotional health and well-being of all who learn and work in schools. It proposes that the skills will be most effectively developed by pupils and staff through:
- a whole-school approach to create the climate and conditions that implicitly promote the skills and allow these to be practised and consolidated
- direct and focused learning opportunities (during tutor time, across the curriculum, in focus groups and outside formal lessons)
- learning and teaching approaches that support pupils to learn social and emotional skills and consolidate those already learnt
- continuing professional development for the whole staff of a school.
