Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Children learn to feel safe and secure and trust the staff who work with them.
We use the SEAL programme (Social & Emotional Aspects of Learning).  The children learn about themselves, how to recognise and manage their feelings, to understand others and begin to develop empathy.

Making Relationships

It is important for children to form good relationships with others and work alongside or with others companionably.

Self-confidence and Self-awareness

Children have a sense of their own value and understand the need for sensitivity to significant events in their own and other people’s lives. Through providing ‘enabling environments’ and ‘planning in the moment’, children have the opportunity to lead their own learning and build in self-confidence

Managing Feelings and Behaviour

Children develop a growing understanding of what is right and what is wrong and why, together with learning about the impact of their words and actions on themselves and others.

All staff members wear RAG rated face symbols on their lanyards. These enable them to give praise, let a child know they need to think about whether they are doing the right thing, or that they have not made the appropriate behaviour choice. All children, including those with SEND or EAL are able to understand.
