Cover Classes

The EDClass Cover software offers a unique provision where any school can impact the delivery of high quality learning for students within cover periods. It's a brand new approach to delivering ‘cover sessions’, which allows for all aspects of teaching and learning policy to be adhered to. EDClass enables your school or MAT to have instant access to over 12,000 quality, pre-recorded lessons, along with supporting lessons, tests, exams, quizzes and assessment.  

This approach can save massive amounts on budget whilst simultaneously reducing teacher stress by not having to cover their absent colleagues' lessons - but teaching and learning still continues with pre recorded lessons and support learning materials, tests and assessments. This unique model has been produced through the vision of a focus group of Head Teachers, Bursars, Cover Supervisor Management and SLT so that every learner has no barrier to learning.

Whilst working with our focus group, it was paramount that all aspects of the students’ teaching and learning followed clear pathways and achieved specific objectives whilst under supervision. Through the use of the EDClass Cover, we will reduce the excessive burdens of planning, preparation and assessment on those teachers that are covering absence due to our extensive library, live teaching and support available. The setting of pathways and marking of work is easy and does not break any protocols. EDClass enables you to track, record and provide details of work to be completed by pupils. Whilst this is simply achieved through using EDClass Cover software, other departmental and curriculum materials can be taught through the EDClass learning pathways to match department planning, schemes of work, along with short, medium and long-term plans, assessment and tests.
