EDMulti

EDMulti is a Virtual Classroom and learning environment where your learners attend an online lesson or session with our staff to improve standards. This enables students to achieve their goals within the e-learning environment.

Our Virtual Classrooms

Our new approach to Virtual Classrooms can help students within a MAT who have difficulty attending mainstream provision. Learning, timing and attendance is then personalised per learner as set out by your rules and regulations. 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.

We virtually become your alternative provision through association by agreeing to follow Service Level Agreements and your own policies and procedures.

EDMulti from EDClass also offers your organisation an alternative practice and way of educating a range of learners before entering an Alternative Provision.

Attendance

Regular attendance and participation in schooling is an important factor in educational and life success.

Students who are regular non-attenders are at risk of alienation from education that can lead to decreased options for future learning pathways.

With online live support, EDMulti provides a great tool for motivating and creating a positive learning system for students that may be non–attenders at academies, for a variety of reasons.

Your organisation can use the virtual classroom and support within EDMulti to gain attendance through creating individualised programmes and learning pathways for students to follow which can match your specific schemes of work and units of study.

We work in partnership with academies and educational establishments to ensure comprehensive levels of safeguarding, well-being, supervision, monitoring, and tracking of attendance, grades and progress for groups and individuals.

Working with EDMulti you have the capacity to:

  • Reduce suspensions and exclusions, lower persistent absences and enhance learning whilst simultaneously enabling the students to have the opportunity to work independently.
  • Improve disengaged students’ knowledge and understanding within a range of subjects in a relaxed and enjoyable environment through interactive learning approaches.
  • Increase behaviour, motivation and attendance whilst promoting fun learning.
  • Enable teaching staff to track, monitor and view graphical data of student’s progress in English, Maths and Science and other subjects.
  • EDMulti students can also receive ATTENDANCE grades whilst completing lessons with live online support – the platform tracks idle time online and time in learning.

 DFE Guidelines to Alternative Provision:

Schools on the right package can claim attendance codes for students providing they follow strict guidelines. Our guidelines are based on the DFE guidelines for alternative provision.

The latest version has added areas to ensure a good education is provided for children who cannot attend school because of health needs.

Our strengths are the core subjects but we've not stopped there, we have invested a great deal of work in breaking down the learning barriers in many other areas and are able to deliver teaching from functional skills to GCSE.

We have achieved good academic attainment on a par with mainstream schools – particularly in English, Maths and Science (including ICT), with appropriate accreditation and qualifications, to ensure:

  • that the specific personal, social and academic needs of pupils are properly identified and met in order to help them to overcome any barriers to attainment;
  • there is improved pupil motivation and self-confidence, attendance and engagement with education; and
  • clearly defined objectives, including the next steps, following the placement such as reintegration into mainstream education, further education, training or employment.

Our guidelines for attendance codes covers different areas, but benefits all involved.

Below is a testimonial from one of our customers. Since the time of this testimonial we have rebranded this product as "EDMulti".

“The cooperative academy have been the highest attending high school  in Manchester for the last four years and constantly strive to keep the attendance at a high level, We currently have  900 students on  roll,  The attendance up to half term 5 this academic year was 97.21% and our PA  level was 3%. In the last released DfE’s figures we came in the top 1>#/b### of England

The Academy is based in an area of low income families with a high proportion of students coming from challenging complex backgrounds,  Keeping students engaged and attending regularly is a daily challenging task.

We were introduced to EDLounge in the middle of the academic year 2016 – 2017 the impact on our attendance was instant and has a positive impact on our figures.

I can confidently say that if we had had the package sooner we would have had a lower PA figure and increased attendance.  With the purchase of the EDClass seat we have access to EDLounge which we have set up in our internal Exclusion suite, this provides students who would normally have to work from work sheets, access to lessons and course work that they would normally be completing in lessons.

In my role  as Attendance Manager and  Safeguarding Officer I  am often asked to  visit  other schools and Academies to offer support in improving their attendance, I have  no problem in endorsing the EDLounge  company to  Schools and Academies  as a tool to improve their attendance and support students.

Many Thanks “

Jenny – Attendance Manager & Safeguarding Officer, The Co-operative Academy of Manchester

Safeguarding

Students are able to ask for and receive help, feedback, comments and direction from support officers so that all students can progress through their learning pathway.

Support and supervision is given to any individual using any of the virtual classrooms, whether they are on site or off site.

Our support and supervision officers offer a thorough and robust safeguarded provision which addresses Government legislation for alternative provisions on/off site for academies.

The partnership and process:

Our EDMulti expert support officers have an extensive knowledge of the qualifications we offer and put into place an exclusive pre-assessment, assessment and feedback service for the students alongside safe supervision.

The online discussions between the teacher and student are recorded for safeguarding purposes but enables the students to ask for help, guidance and assistance securely.

There is total transparency of progress, attendance, attainment and behaviour throughout the system for staff, EDMulti, SLT, parents, students and behaviour support to view:

  • Messages
  • Lessons started, completed, or attempted
  • Idle time
  • Live recording of interactions

  • Chats, questions, and lesson involvement
  • Question submission
  • Baseline tests

6th Day Provision

EDMulti 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 sixth day of their exclusion from mainstream education.

However, EDMulti 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 soon 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 EDMulti. 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.

Parental Access

EDMulti also provides the opportunity for parents to access their own area of the system to track and monitor learner progress. They are able to see the programme of study that has been assigned and the support to aid learner progress. EDMulti also comes with an internal messaging system so the parents, the learner and the teacher can communicate with each other within a secure area.

How the seats work

Your staff and our staff work together, with your students, to give them support and assistance online whilst following a personalised learning pathway. Within EDMulti, our qualified teachers work with your teachers, using our online platform and our virtual classrooms to educate the students within your trust.

Students will engage with qualified and experienced teachers online using our tailor-made learning pathways giving your students the best learning opportunities that are available in a virtual learning environment.

With EDMulti qualified teaching staff, you can support persistent absentees or learners who may suffer from mental health issues.
