Abstract

This paper raises questions about social and emotional learning (SEL) as a facilitator of all children’s social, emotional and behavioural skills. Drawing on qualitative data, in the form of group and individual interviews with a range of primary school and early years staff members across four case studies, the findings indicate that children’s social and emotional behaviours linked to social class, gender and ethnicity were targeted through SEL, revealing a propensity for staff to endorse a normative model of experiences for young children. By clarifying some of the concerns around such monist approaches to SEL, I make the case for an agonistic model (Mouffe, 2005), that not only embraces difference and contestation, but uses them as a focus for learning.
