PSHE education can be defined as a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future
As part of a whole school approach at Iqra, PSHE education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
Primary SEAL is a PSHE programme of study. Most of us think ‘seal’ refers to a fin-footed aquatic mammal, but in actual fact SEAL practised in schools is concerned with the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning. Used effectively, SEAL teaches children the skills they need for a better life.
What is primary SEAL?
SEAL in primary schools offers a whole framework for promoting social and emotional literacy, supporting children with:
managing their feelings
The framework is divided into seven themes to be covered within a school year:
Getting on and falling out
Say “no” to bullying
Going for goals
Good to be me
Used as a whole-school, cross-curricular approach, SEAL aims to help children become successful learners, responsible citizens, and confident individuals.
SEAL and you
SEAL is not simply concerned with the pupils in the school but extends out to our staff, parents, carers and the local community. You as parents and carers can benefit from the ideas behind SEAL through useful strategies and activities to help you communicate with your child. Supporting your child with a consistent set of values and behaviour expectations is key to SEAL. Creating that fusion between learning in school and what they experience at home is vital.
