Social and Emotional Learning

  • What is social and emotional learning?

    Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process of developing the self awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are vital for school, work, and life success!

    Our school’s vision statement for Social and Emotional Learning:

    To ensure high levels of individual learning for all students, Stafford Primary School is a relationship-centered learning community where staff, students and families provide clear expectations for procedures and behavior, build strong connections, create a safe and supportive climate, learn to have compassion and empathy for others, and where every student knows their strengths and has a sense of belonging.

    To achieve this vision, we utilize the following SEL related curriculums, resources, and research-based approaches:

    Second Step SEL Curriculum (taught by classroom teachers throughout the year)

    Second Step Child Protection Unit  (taught each year by the school counselor)

    Zones of Regulation

    Restorative Practices and Justice
