Abstract: Highlights * We tested a model of social-emotional learning in 9-12-year-olds to explore. * The direct effect of social-emotional competence on academic attainment. * The indirect effects through school connectedness and mental health difficulties. * We found that social-emotional competence did not predict academic attainment. * Mental health difficulties was the only statistically significant mediator.
