What is seal
What is SEAL

SEAL is a comprehensive approach to promoting the social and emotional skills that underpin effective learning, positive behaviour and emotional health and well-being in schools.


What is seal1
What is SEAL

It is based on the notion that the skills will be most effectively learnt through:

  • A whole school approach to creating the climate and conditions for learning that implicitly promote the skills and allow these to be practiced and consolidated;

  • Direct and focused learning opportunities (during tutor time and across the curriculum);

  • Using learning and teaching approaches that support students to learn new skills and consolidate those already learnt

  • Staff development
