Personal & Social Education (PSE), and Social & Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL)
Personal and social education (PSE) is everything that a learning setting does to support and promote the personal and social development and well-being of its learners.
The new Framework for Children’s Learning 3 to 7 years old in Wales has personal and social development, well being and cultural diversity as a core element.
Children have opportunities to learn about themselves and their relationships with other children and adults within and beyond their family. They will explore the distinctive Welsh culture and other cultures that are part of the diverse society in Wales.
Concepts of fairness and justice are introduced and children are encouraged to think about respect and the feelings of others. The importance of motivation, perseverance, self esteem and a positive disposition to learning all have significant role to play in children’s learning and development.
Well-being is an integral part of learning and is acknowledged as essential to becoming an effective learner within the Foundation Phase.
The revised PSE framework for 7 to 19 year olds in Wales offers clear opportunities to teach about health and emotional well-being. Well planned, high quality PSE equips children and young people to be more informed and confident to interact effectively with others, and enables them to develop the intrapersonal skills needed to be emotionally literate.
The Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) curriculum resource aims to develop the social, emotional skills of learners and promote positive behaviour. Used in a coordinated way, the SEAL materials have the potential to contribute significantly to a school’s broad balanced programme of PSE.
