The relevance of the subject covered in this study is based on the necessity to thoroughly understand the role of the teacher (second only to the family in terms of influence) in the development of the social competence of the primary school pupil. Research in this context is all the more relevant when considering the number of hours children spend at school, the emotional nature of social interactions, and the emotions students constantly experience while learning. The purpose of this study is to provide an overview of the existing literature on the social competence of teachers themselves and the school climate factors that influence the development of children's social competence in primary school education. The process from theory to the practice of teaching social competence skills to the youngest pupil will be considered. In addition, the study provides conclusions from the existing literature, based on research conducted over the last three to four years in various countries. To this end, research was conducted on methods that can help educators respond positively to individual variability, develop their emotional competence and preserve their life balance, which helps them to establish a safe classroom environment that encourages children to develop all the qualities necessary for social adjustment on their way to adulthood. In their daily active interaction with teachers and peers, children experience a great variety of emotions. Researchers agreed that emotions influence behaviour. And even if the child is not inclined to interact explicitly, they can learn about emotional norms in the classroom and acquire emotional competence skills by observing the social-emotional behaviour of those around them. The main assistants in developing children's emotional competence are, in one way or another, primary school teachers. Discoveries over the last decade have confirmed that social competence, as an integral trait of personal development that develops at early school age, is a predictor of productive socialisation and overall success later in life.
