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.

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