In 2021, the SEEN Curriculum materials were developed and trialled by the University of Oxford’s Department of Psychiatry.

Researchers were excited by the results:

  • More than 3700 students took part in the pilot across 29 schools, involving over 100 teaching staff.
  • Students demonstrated both increased knowledge about development and an understanding of how this was applicable to practical situations after the SEEN lessons.
  • 100% of teachers and 91% of pupils felt the SEEN curriculum should be taught to other students of the same age.

A full report of the findings can be found here.

In 2022, the team are looking to expand the programme and introduce the materials in more schools. If you would like to find out more about this next phase of implementation, please join our SEEN community. This will give you access to information for schools, including free and updated lesson resources.
