The SEAL initiatives were introduced to the school timetable in September 2006 and have gradually been embedded in the PSHCE programme of work.

The objectives of SEAL are integral to the school ethos and support the individual and often complex needs of our students.

The objectives of SEAL can be summarised as; Self Awareness, Managing Feelings,

Motivation, Empathy and Social skills.

These aspects are often considered to fall into two categories- the personal (e.g. Self awareness) and the interpersonal (e.g. Social skills)

These objectives centre on the social, emotional and behavioural skills of students and place emphasis and practise on the following very essential life skills necessary for students at St. Joseph’s.
