Evaluation of SEAL research paper

In this study, a team of experienced school advisors used a semi‐structured observation and interview protocol to rate various aspects of the implementation of SEAL in 49 primary and secondary schools. A total of 2242 pupils in 29 of these schools completed measures of social experiences and school ethos. School‐level attainment and attendance statistics were collated for all participating schools. Analysis revealed that ratings indicative of a whole‐school universal approach to SEAL were significantly associated with school ethos, which in turn predicted improved peer relationships,  better overall school attainment, and reduced persistent absence. Thematic analysis of the advisors’ records illuminated key dimensions and exemplars of whole‐school implementation. Results highlight the role of school ethos in systematically connecting whole‐school practices relating to SEAL with key indicators of school success..

For KS3 and 4 the lesson looks at a range of different changes, and unpicks unexpected/expected changes, and changes that are within or out of our control. These are ideas also covered in the SEAL national resources ‘Changes’ theme materials. The additional film for KS3 and 4 is slightly more lecturing but still useful, and there is one other film on young people who swapped homes and families for a while, which could lead to some lively and interesting teaching and learning. Each set of resources includes a PowerPoint, lesson notes and tips on using the material. Find the videos that go with the resources here . There are additional resources on puberty at…
