What Our Customers Have Said…

"The impact on attendance that EDLounge has had is that been able to support an increase in 2.7 per cent increase in the first term of this academic year (2015) because students are engaged on an alternative provision whilst excluded. This often has not been the case in other alternative providers we have set up through failure to engage or attend through choice or transport issues. This is not the case with EDLounge as we have set it up in the comfort of their own home after we undertaken appropriate and legal safeguarding measures to ensure the student is in the right and safe environment to continue on their off-site education. EDLounge, because it is all interfaced related students of this day of age quite often prefer to interact in that measure and they almost don’t feel like they are learning and they don’t feel like it is school work, because the way it is set up and how they engage with it. I cannot recommend EDLounge highly enough in terms of how it has supported the behaviour transformation at the Featherstone Academy and I would willingly endorse it to any other educational establishment in the country that are looking to make a difference to their school’s behaviour and overall school culture. What is a real bonus for the student is how they can see how they are making progress because of the work is so tailored to them in their personalised pathways they actually demonstrate a mark able amount of progress. With that intrinsic motivation and being reward with being able to see the personal progress made themselves is a really is a powerful tool to changing some of our students, some of real hard to reach student behaviour. Also, EDLounge has saved the academy many thousands of pounds this academic year because we use it as our first port of call for alternative provision. The impact of EDLounge and EDClass is that we can now support students learning whilst they are excluded from the academy. Therefore, when they return from their exclusion they have not fallen behind their peers in terms of their learning and they are able to be seamlessly reintegrated back into mainstream lessons without any detriment to their education. We are avoiding bounce back exclusions where students return back to mainstream lessons and because of the gaps in their knowledge can often lead to low level disruption or further disruption which ends up as a repeat fixed term exclusion – but EDLounge fills that gap and students are far better supported in their learning both once on exclusion and when on return from exclusion.

Don’t like your new school or class?

Moving up a school or entering a new class is tough and, although it probably doesn’t feel like it, even the most confident, outgoing of people can feel as though they’re well out of their depth during this time. If you’re struggling with this process, then first realise that you’re not ...

10 Key Changes to the GCSE

Summer 2016 was a headline-grabber for all the wrong reasons as the lowest GCSE results in a decade were unveiled. Michael Gove claimed the changes would "address the pernicious damage caused by grade inflation and dumbing down”. Will next year’s results be easier to digest after the first...

Is there a recruitment and retention crisis in education?

Without doubt these are the most challenging times I have experienced in teaching and school leadership. Finding a middle ground between doing what is morally right for the students and keeping the academy from falling into a category due to the new measures is a difficult task. The post Is ...

Teaching coding as part of the national curriculum

The changes to the computing curriculum may well have been lost in the middle of some fairly large scale reform over the last year or so, but will impact learning in many subjects according to those in the know. The idea of teaching coding is incredibly daunting to those who may have just about ...
