Social Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL)

SEAL is “a comprehensive, whole-school 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”(DCSF, 2007, p.4)

 

At Queensberry AP, SEAL is fundamental to our ‘whole child’ approach. We work with students to identify their barriers to learning and through both individual and group work we will tackle the underlying issues that are preventing them from achieving their full potential in their mainstream school.

 

SEAL is embedded into everything we do and our unique provision enables us to build trusting relationships with the students and their families to ensure long term sustainable solutions are developed.

Students will participate in a number of workshops delivered by Queensberry AP Staff and volunteers from HMP Thorn Cross, all will be tailored specifically to meet the needs of individuals and promote five core elements:

  • Self-awareness

  • Self-regulation (managing feelings)

  • Motivation

  • Empathy

  • Social skills
