PSHE

We use the resource Social Emotional Aspects of Learning or SEAL when teaching PSCHE. SEAL focuses on the qualities and skills that help us manage life and learn effectively. There are five social and emotional aspects of learning: self-awareness, managing feelings, motivation, empathy, social skills. Each term starts with a theme and a whole school assembly.

 

Where pupils have developed their skills in these areas, and are educated within an emotionally safe environment, they will be motivated to, and equipped to:

 

  • be effective and successful learners
  • make and sustain friendships
  • deal with and resolve conflict effectively and fairly
  • solve problems with others or by themselves
  • manage strong feelings such as frustration, anger and anxiety
  • be able to promote calm and optimistic states that promote the achievement of goals
  • recover from setbacks and persist in the face of difficulties
  • work and play cooperatively
  • compete fairly and win and lose with dignity and respect for competitors
  • recognise and stand up for their rights and the rights of others
  • understand and value the differences and commonalities between people, respecting the right of others to have beliefs and values different from their own

 

The SEAL curriculum resource does not cover all aspects of the PSHE&C framework, so the following is also taught:

 

  • preparing to play an active role as citizens
  • developing a healthy, safer lifestyle - which is also covered through science
