Who are we

The SEAL Community was set up in 2012 as a Community Interest Company (CIC) on a not-for profit basis by Jean Gross CBE, and Julie Casey M.Ed., C.Psychol.

Jean led the SEAL initiative in England between 2003 and 2005 in her role as Senior Director for the National Strategies , and until recently was the government’s Communication Champion for children.

Julie is currently practising as a Senior Specialist Educational Psychologist in Wales, was a leading contributor to the SEAL materials and their roll-out in England and Wales, and is a well-known author, trainer and consultant in the field.

Both Jean and Julie are committed to ensuring that SEAL continues to enjoy a high profile in schools and settings, and that those who use the SEAL resources can continue to share good practice and keep the approach growing and improving.
