I am particularly interested in how we promote and further develop self-esteem, self-efficacy and behavioural change. The latest edition of 'Social and Emotional Learning Update' contains two articles about some brilliant work in Leeds...

Mary Strode who heads up the primary work on SEAL has written about creative approaches to the learning and teaching of social and emotional skills working with Arttforms and local arts companies. The CPD programme has been a building block for the development of SEAL in Leeds and is being further developed with both primary and secoindary schools.

George Bramley, Sam Hodgson and Richard Gray, students at Brigshaw High School, have written about their peer mentoring projct supporting a group of Year 6/7 boys at risk of underachievement. The impact and success of the project has led to it being further developed in the school.

It is great to see outstanding work in Leeds showcased like this. You can find out more about these articles and the publication by visiting their website at
