All educators want to equip young people for life beyond school, be that leaving to go home at the end of the day or leaving school at 18.
STEER PSHE & Families equips young people with social-emotional literacy so they can self-regulate: make the right choice at the right time for the right reason. STEER PSHE & Families guides families with personalised advice to help their child thrive.
What is it
There are 3 parts to PSHE & Families. The Footprints PSHE curriculum for ages 7-14, the Take the Wheel dashboard for ages 15-16, and Family Signposts. Together they enrich family social-emotional literacy and improve student self-regulation.
How it works
STEER’s Footprints curriculum is a pickup and go character based curriculum, enriched with family resources so students and families can learn together. Take the Wheel is an online programme helping students understand their own personal patterns of self-regulation. Family Signposts enables you to build a personalised, practical, and precise resource to advise and support any family.
Our resources will equip your teachers to work more proactively with families. Working together, you give the right message and opportunity for each young person so they can thrive – in school, out of school and beyond school.
We focus on the Student
Our PSHE & Families programmes help your students develop and improve resilience, metacognition and self-regulation.
We support Schools
Schools and parents are equally invested in their children’s education – and more than ever since the pandemic. Parents often reach out to school for guidance; they want to work with you!
Equip your teachers with a comprehensive bank of practical family strategies, linked to their child’s steer data, so that parents and teachers can be aligned in their approach.
Research based approach
Two doctoral studies were conducted by STEERs founders to build Footprints Curriculum and Family Signposts as effective programmes to develop young people’s self-regulation, metacognition and emotional resilience.
