6th Day Provision

EDClass is a proven way to address the 6th-day provision issues as any learner can access a central and secure teaching and learning classroom where safeguarding is paramount. This solution can offer on-site and off-site learning for any learner. EDClass can help schools and centres educate students who have difficulty attending a mainstream provision. We provide a safe and secure learning environment for hard to reach students allowing them to achieve whilst offering educators our online platform and safeguarding tools. This will ensure each student reaches their full potential in a controlled and safe environment. EDClass staff enables a partnership to be created so that we have the capability to educate students on specific timetabled pathways via a live video stream that is all recorded to safeguard teachers, school staff and students to meet your school needs.  Every file is saved, encrypted and sent to the school.

EDClass enables your school, MAT, academy or LA to have a 6th-day provision that:

  • support students live via our tuition platform
  • offer live timetabled sessions
  • provide a personalised pathway
  • view the students learning via live a secure video stream
  • chat face to face, with learners
  • view their learning progress, offer mentoring, support and assistance
  • view live answers and submissions
  • mentor learners via a secure verbal chat or written chat
  • set a structured pathway for any individual in a timetable path so that mentors and support workers can assist any learner
  • be flexible for any learner

It also enables you to address any catch-up or educational recovery programmes. This approach can dramatically improve students’ attendance and achievement but most importantly educate the students within a short term exclusion, 6th-day provision or those school phobia / anxious/mental health students. Here is how EDClass has been implemented into a local authority to educate and impact their students throughout the region with their 6th-day provision and many other aspects that can help impact your alternative provision:

Legal Requirements

It is now a legal requirement that an alternative provision must be arranged for an excluded child from the sixth day of their exclusion from mainstream education.

As soon as a child is excluded, an alternative provision can begin. By working in partnership, we can ensure that as soon as a child is excluded they are able to access 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 instantly set up in collaboration with the school and EDClass. The student just needs a laptop, internet access and a webcam and headset to start. Once the child is in a safe environment (which has had a health and safety visit completed by your qualified staff), then they are ready to learn and for their provision to start.

You can also alternate your learners to have live or on-demand teaching and support from our UK Qualified Teachers and support staff in time slots and periods (as explained below)

EDClass can also be used for your organisation for 6th-day learning or for extra learning for learners that have:

  • Split timetables
  • Split classroom

Alongside the 6th day provision you can also use EDClass to improve your school, multi-academy trust and local authority alternative learning provision for any learner whilst reducing:

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