Personal, Social & Emotional Development

PSED - What is it?


Personal, Social and Emotional Development is recognised as one of the building blocks of success in life. It supports children’s development by helping them to interact effectively and develop positive attitudes to themselves and others. However, this does not happen in isolation and relies on influential adults such as parents and carers providing them with positive feedback and modelling appropriate behaviour.

In the Revised EYFS PSED is broken down into three aspects:

  • Self-confidence and self-awareness
  • Managing feelings and behaviour
  • Making relationships
