Personal, Social & Emotional Development

This is a prime area of learning and much of our work has a strong emphasis upon developing these attributes in our pupils in every area of school life.

Key aspects of learning are:

  • Making relationships
  • Self-confidence and self-awareness
  • Managing feelings and behaviour

As well as setting up our activities to promote and teach these aspects we also use ‘Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning’ (SEAL) materials as our scheme of work.

The themes within SEAL are:

  • New Beginnings
  • Getting on / Falling Out
  • Bullying
  • Going for Goals
  • Good to be Me
  • Relationships
  • Changes

We have also created specialist areas in the classroom and school, such as our ‘Time to Think’ area and Nurture Room, to support children who have difficulty with personal, social or emotional development
