Description/Abstract

The Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL) programme has been developed in England to enhance social and emotional competence and well-being in schools. As part of the SEAL programme, Family SEAL seeks to engage parents as partners in this process. Seven primary schools in Dorset, a local authority in the South of England, implemented Family SEAL in a pilot project during 2007–2008. Both class teachers and parents reported post-programme gains in children’s social and emotional competence, and significant gains were reported for those children who had previously been identified as a cause for concern in their social and emotional development. Parents gave limited qualitative evidence of the impact of Family SEAL in the home. The implications for Family SEAL as a means of improving emotional well-being are discussed
