At Seal we feel we matter and are valued. Together we achieve and succeed.

We believe that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for all. We have developed an exciting, new and irresistible curriculum which promotes independence through purposeful learning experiences.

  • Using visual supports to help them better understand their routine and a basic knowledge of Makaton
  • simplifying communication and allow time for them to process information
  • using social stories to develop greater social understanding
  • consider the school environment and think about how you can make it more comfortable.
  • keep a behaviour diary/ABC chart
  • use a stress scale, the incredible five-point scale to turn emotions into more concrete concepts. 
  • establish good communication with parents/carers
  • adapt learning opportunities to the pupil's needs.

In return, we offer a commitment to your professional development and a supportive and friendly team that work together towards the bright future of our amazing school.
