Houseparent, Harrow School, London
"AS Tracking provides objective, incisive, intelligent analysis in digestible form and frameworks tangible action plans. We couldn’t imagine being without this extra, invaluable set of pastoral eyes.‘
Emma Trelawny-Vernon, St Ronan's School, Kent
“We believe we have a robust pastoral system will pick up 80% of the issues. But using AS Tracking allows us to pick up what we do not see and react to it.”
Safeguarding Lead, Cranleigh School, Surrey

Why does AS Tracking Detect work?
AS Tracking Detect is based on pioneering science into 'pupil steering biases'. Pupils' steering biases are assessed twice or three times per year using AS Tracking Detect. Research conducted by STEER over 15 years, started at Oxford University, shows that this steering data predicts their mental health risks and their social competencies. READ OUR EVIDENCE BASE

During COVID AS Tracking safeguarded 1,000s of pupils in lockdown at home
During lockdown the STEER 'supporting vulnerable pupils' tool has been an absolute GAME CHANGER. The ability to look across a range of biases and pick out targeted comments has been hugely positive in our remote student interactions'
The AS Tracking app data was incredibly helpful in trying to support those who have been struggling in lockdown.
The lockdown remote assessment was extremely efficient. Some chose to do it on their mobile phones using the app, others via a link on our Firefly platform.
The AS tracking profile has given me such insight into how my student's mind might be working. During lockdown, the strategies that I'm trying with him seem to be working. From his mum’s email, we have one happy boy at home right.
IN RESPONSE TO LOCKDOWN, USING THE AS TRACKING FUNCTION TO MEASURE MENTAL HEALTH RISKS OUTSIDE SCHOOL, STEER LAUNCHED AN IMMEDIATE STRATEGY TO SUPPORT SCHOOLS AND SAFEGUARD 1000's OF STUDENTS.
