Testimonials - Exclusions & Isolation

EDClass bridges the gap from excluded students and in school students so that they are 'up to speed' and confident on their return.

 

Timothy Edge, Year Manager at Chaucer

 

Improved educational provision of students excluded from school/on alternative pathway.

 

Donna Mitchell, Inclusion Manager at Ossett Academy

 

Reduced exclusions and given students access to learning when off ill or unable to attend school.

 

Gemma Carberry, Admin Support Clerk at Acklam Grange School

 

At BBG Academy, EDLounge currently plays a large part in how we support students who have received Fixed Term Exclusions. It is vital that despite the wrong choices the student may have made, they are offered a chance to continue their learning and education during what can be a very difficult time. Students are promptly placed on a seat on EDClass from EDLounge and are set relevant work that they would otherwise miss out on.

As well as this, the students have an opportunity to reduce any reintegration time they may serve in isolation upon their return to school and also reduce the impact a Fixed Term Exclusion may have on their attendance.

EdClass (from EDLounge) is a key component of our behaviour support package at Pakefield. For students who are at risk of permanent exclusion, we use EdClass to deliver off site learning, with students attending school for a short amount of time each day with sessions focusing on improving their own behaviour.

Family support workers, parents, and the students themselves have been very positive about the support in place. The fact that qualified teachers are available through EdClass means that students feel connected to their learning at all times, a stark contrast to the typical exclusion process.

We have started using EdClass from EDLounge in our external isolation room. It keeps students more engaged and focused – the short tasks and motivation through the gaming aspect work brilliantly. Students can also follow their timetable when isolated so they don’t fall behind in their class work.
