SEBD modules

Step By Step offer a Service Level Agreement (SLA) approach for the supply of  the following  modules written especially for Primary aged children or Teenagers. A recent survey from OFSTED  found that many schools are now using their Pupil Premium to raise attainment, but others are still struggling to show how the money is making a meaningful impact in terms of ‘closing the gap’ between pupils from low income and more affluent families. The modules provide the accountability and are an effective solid way to help raising pupils attainment, whilst also forming part of a wider strategy to instil resilience.

So what are we offering?……..

Step By Step offer a range of Modules covering a wide range of subjects that teaching professionals have identified as a requirement. These modules are aimed at Specific age groups.

Typically, Step By Step offer schools the opportunity to purchase an amount of hours or credits which are delivered in a modular format over an agreed period of time. The benefit to the school is that they can be selective over the subject matter and work around their diaries. The terms and conditions form the basis of the Service Level Agreement (SLA).


Anger Management- The aim of this module is to assist learners to manage anger. Objectives include understanding anger as an emotion, to explore the characteristics of anger, to provide learners with strategies and tips in managing anger and reducing tension, to explore what makes them angry and how it affects them and others, understanding the facts around anger.  A totally unique approach- delivered in an educational and interactive way. (2 hours) 

Confidence and Self-Esteem- This is an area schools always think they have ‘covered’ when it comes to the well -being of students- yet it’s so often mentioned as a negative within OFSTED inspections in educational establishments.

This module is a ‘taster’ session on increasing self-esteem using role play scenarios together with fun and interactive activities, problem solving strategies. Learners will look at the definition and difference between confidence and self- esteem, communication, relaxation techniques together with tips to help improve self-worth and self- esteem. (2 hours).

“What strategies are you using to support Year 11 Students who are nervous, anxious or losing sleep due to forthcoming exams?”

StressThis topic is something schools have to deal with day after day, especially around SATS and examination times.

This module introduces coping strategies for stress and is delivered in a fun and interactive way. Students will take part in activities where they explore ‘triggers’ that cause stress and come up with their own solutions to combat it. An introduction to relaxation techniques is given whilst signposting on guidance, support and further help.  (2 hours). 

Relationships/Domestic AbuseDomestic Abuse is on the increase in young people’s first ‘loving relationships’. 1-in-10 young women and 1-in-5 young men at some point think domestic abuse is acceptable.

This module explores and defines domestic abuse by looking at the shocking statistics using a quiz together with role play scenarios, reviewing case studies. Other areas covered include:- The Characteristics of a perpetrator, the impact domestic abuse has on victims and where to get help and support. (2 hours).

Cyber Bullying- Statistics show that recorded incidents of Cyber Bullying have overtaken more traditional forms of bullying. Nearly 40% of adolescents in the UK have been cyber bullied to some degree. And given that these are the known or recorded instances, it’s no surprise that the scale of this widespread problem is felt within schools, where almost 5% of ‘absence days’ can be attributed to bullying per year.  (NatCen report).

Step By Step has devised a module where the aim is to raise awareness and to show young people that help and support is available together with sharing some intervention strategies in an interactive and educational way. (2 hours).

Feelings and Emotions When asked most adults say they enjoyed their childhood, but would not want to relive the teenage years again. This is due to the immense changes the mind and body go through- it is indeed a confusing and conflicting time for young people.This module explores and unpicks the changes young people go through emotionally for example- anger, crying and being fearless amongst others. Using role play scenarios we show how to manage feelings and improving communication. Also includes looking at coping strategies with fun and interactive ice-breakers  (2 hours).

Friendships and Peer pressures We have all been in situations when we go along with the crowd; even when we know it’s the wrong thing to do- young people even more so as they don’t want to appear different or difficult. This module examines case studies, uses role play and discussion. Activities such as ‘Something in common’ and ‘friendships’ whilst sharing tips on how to back out of difficult situations and to simply say no  (2 hours).

 7-11 year olds

Teasing & Bullying- This age group often gets confused between “What is Teasing” with “What is bullying”. This module helps children to differentiate between the two using simple statements, case studies with fun and engaging activities. It also lets children know where they can go for help and support (2 hours).

Feelings and Emotions– “Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but names can never harm me”- we know this to be untrue. We all know that children can be cruel and it’s sometimes unintentional. This module helps children to understand emotions but also helps to improve mental well-being which is important is sustaining positive relationships with family, friends and peers (2 hours).

Friendships and Relationships- Having the ability and sensitivity to recognise emotion in others is a great skill for children to acquire- successful relationships are founded on this, while at the same time managing and expressing our own thoughts and feelings. This module looks at improving children’s communication and assertiveness skills. It also offers the opportunity to explore and question “What makes a good friend?”Lastly this session provides an opportunity for the child to think and reflect on their own experiences and how these may impact on themselves and others. (2 hours).

Confidence and Self-EsteemThe aim of this module is to promote positive emotional health in children. It identifies individual strengths and enhances existing skills around assertiveness and communication. This module looks to increase self worth, self awareness and increases motivation and the belief individuals can attain.  Additionally the purpose of the module is to improve relationships with peers and reduce social isolation(2 hours).
