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'

Pangbourne College

The AS Tracking app data was incredibly helpful in trying to support those who have been struggling in lockdown.

Cranleigh School

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.

Kingston Grammar

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.

Reeds School

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.
