At The Ashley School we believe that our pupils need to develop the emotional and social skills to help them make positive relationships, to accept and value themselves, and to make choices to keep themselves safe and healthy. This includes helping them cope with change, exploring how to solve problems and resolve conflicts.
The Ashley School has introduced SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) to provide a structure for teaching and assessing pupils’ social and emotional development. The PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) and Citizenship curriculum allows pupils to learn about age appropriate issues within their lives (for example going through puberty, the effects of smoking) but at a level appropriate to their learning needs.
We aim to provide our pupils with the skills and self-knowledge to help them cope successfully when they move on to college and adult life.
