The summer holidays have ended and schools have returned. EDClass can reduce students’ worries and concerns with their education and is ready to help for the new academic year.

EDClass recently spoke to Stuart Cann, Assistant Head Teacher at Trinity Church of England High School regarding their students using the online platform. Mr Cann said:

“We have had students on for a range of reasons. This includes students working from home on EDClass as a part of supporting their reintegration back into school. The reasons here are variable but EDClass has been useful to support our students when needed.”

EDClass can support students who are unable to attend school for a variety of reasons: students who are absent due to exclusion, medical grounds - or whatever their circumstance - can continue their education using the online platform so they are not left behind.

Young people’s mental health during the pandemic has suffered, with many worrying about the effects it has had on their education. EDClass has UK-qualified teachers and support staff who can help students with concerns that may arise. Mr Cann also said:

“In terms of mental health, when a student isn’t in school they do worry about missing lessons. EDClass gives them the opportunity for them to continue with the lessons they would have that day. It also minimises any concerns or worries about being behind.”

Students using the platform can maintain attendance and attainment levels from mainstream schools. In addition to this, support from EDClass’ teachers can help elevate a student’s understanding of a certain topic they may be struggling with. Mr Cann added:

“We generally use EDClass in the short-term whilst we are supporting students in whatever way they require. In terms of their educational attainment, the students are still engaged with their schoolwork when they are not in school. It provides them with the opportunity to keep working when they cannot be in school at that time, so it provides that link between home and school.”

Constant support is available and students can engage with interactive content that assesses them throughout to track their progress. EDClass works in collaboration with schools ensuring student safety and progress. Additionally, Mr Cann stated:

“When students work in our learning support unit they have access to the platform and we use it as a very efficient way to support their work. I find the support fantastic, often we use it as a short-term measure for a variety of reasons and the staff are really supportive. The staff have supported me and my team with the platform and it is done so efficiently. I am really appreciative of that.”

During the summer holidays, students will still be able to access thousands of lessons and content that can help them recover from lost education due to the pandemic. The platform can be tailored to suit the specific needs of a student and is easy to use. Mr Cann said:

“I would recommend EDClass, it’s the supportive nature, it’s the ease of getting set up and students on. We have even been able to take parents through it easily and it’s the continuity of education for however long it is required for that student for whatever reason.”
