Attendance

EDClass has proven to improve whole school attendance by meeting the needs of the school and individual students through our innovative approach.

If increasing and maintaining your attendance is a priority then EDClass can certainly help.  Increasing your attendance can be done in various ways with students with different needs. EDClass through our flexible and hybrid teaching and learning can enable you to claim attendance codes for:

  • short-term provision
  • 6th day provision
  • learners in isolation
  • learners with mental health issues
  • distance learners
  • poor attenders for catch up
  • learners who have/are being been suspended
  • school phobic learners
  • part time learners
  • learners needing one-to-one support
  • home-educated learners
  • long term sick

 
We can offer support to any individual, whether they be on or off-site. All our teachers and support staff are trained to have extensive knowledge and understanding of the EDClass lessons, system and methodology. An exclusive pre-assessment, assessment and feedback service is available for learners, which will help them understand, learn and progress through EDClass.

 

6th-Day Provision

EDClass is a proven way to address the 6th-day provision issues and improve your academy’s attendance whilst also reducing:

  • isolation days
  • student exclusions
  • fixed-term exclusions
  • incidents in inclusions
  • low-level disruptive behaviour

 

Legal Requirements

It is now a legal requirement that an alternative provision must be arranged for an excluded child from the 6th-day of their exclusion from mainstream education. However, EDClass can do this from day one!

As soon as a child is excluded an alternative provision can begin. By working in partnership we can ensure that as an exclusion takes place the child can be accessing work structured for their reintegration back into mainstream education.

By placing the child onto a virtual classroom seat it enables that student instant access to support, tutors and teaching within an approved and proven method of delivering an alternative provision. The student can follow any type of learning pathway for core, academic and vocational content alongside behaviour repair work. This pathway can be set up instantly in collaboration with the school and EDClass. The student just needs a laptop, webcam and headset to start. Once the child is in a safe environment (that has had a health and safety visit completed by your qualified staff) then they are ready to learn and for their provision to start.

EDClass complies with and supports your organisation with the 2021 Statutory Guidance for Schools and Colleges by the DfE.
