We are doing a lot of self-regulated learning work (building as we go) with grade 6/7 at my current school.
Some of our story

Much is still in the beginning stages — creating a culture in the school and capacity in the students.
There are no shortage of resources about what and why but less about the how…
Two I would recommend for starting are:
Leaders of their Own Learning
Embedded Formative Assessment: chapter 7 pulls it all together with Students as Owners of their Own Learning
For examples of HOW you might want to check out the Discovery 1 school in New Zealand
Senior school — Managing My Learning — more on this page on their site
Discoverer Indicators — big picture of goal setting (something to build towards)
All the stuff I’ve come across (local and international) has the formative assessment piece (see Dylan’s book above) as the foundation.
With that foundation one can shift the focus onto student ownership/SRL/SEL etc. Basically, your staff needs to see the formative assessment learning and practice as an ongoing piece that is continually refined —> the SRL is one way in which the formative assessment practices are refined.
