We work on a stepping stones scenario basis, helping to encourage and build students' self-esteem and lower their anxiety to return to school, this process could be short but in mental health, it will take as long as needed. We have well being officers and Designated Safeguarding Leads and trained workers where safeguarding, well being and support is paramount. Over the years, EDClass has built different tools and systems to help a multitude of students, including those battling mental health problems. This, over the recent pandemic, has changed and we have adapted our curriculum and operations to help your organisation. This is started with the re-engagement of education, which could be 10 minutes or it could be more, moving at the learner's pace. We aim for students to be following their curriculum from school, the relationship between EDClass, school and home is key.

Each day may be different but we build in terms of strength and support on the low days.
