the moment a baby is born, he or she starts to learn about the world
and the social, emotional and behavioural skills needed to be a successful
learner. The young child does this through continuous interaction with
the people who are important in his / her life.
It is when children
start at nursery, pre-school or school that they often have their first
experiences of groups of other children and a wider range of adults.
In school we use
the SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) curriculum to support
children in their learning through a range of activities that are designed
to help them develop the following skills and attitudes:-
: Self awareness
: Managing feelings
: Social Skills
Family SEAL project involves parents in working with the school and
alongside their children to support the development of these skills.
It is an opportunity for parents and carers to understand more about
the learning and teaching that takes place in school and to share ideas.
There are six themes
which we explore in our SEAL learning in school , 1 per term.
Each term we are
inviting parents to attend an introductory assembly at the beginning
of term and the follow up assembly towards the end of the term.
There will also
be a workshop each term at which parents and staff will share ideas
and learn together about the fun and challenge of supporting children
to develop their skills.
At each workshop parents and children have the opportunity to complete

As the project
progresses we will be posting information from each session and photographs
