About Us

What is EDClass?

EDClass is a Department for Education accredited provider of online education that helps break barriers to learning. EDClass assists schools and multi-academy trusts with personalised learning, scheduled pathways of study and timetabled support for any individual within your organisation. 

"EDClass operates as an alternative provider to support pupils who have difficulty in attending a physical school. It provides education for children from age 11 to 16 years. While attending EDClass, pupils remain on the register of a physical school. Pupils are either based at their homes or are supported to access the provision from within their registered schools. Leaders at EDClass have established a caring culture, rooted in high expectations and clear ambition for the pupils who attend the online setting." - Ofsted 

EDClass demonstrates the ability to educate students from your demographic through online learning and provides real-time access to qualified and experienced teachers. You can also use your teachers to deliver sessions.

EDClass is an online learning application designed to help break barriers to learning. EDClass delivers online teaching through UK-qualified teachers and tutors using personalised e-learning tools to promote a positive attitude towards learning. EDClass offers learners live tutorial support and distance learning provision through a robustly safeguarded and supervised online platform. The system is purposefully built to be flexible in its approach to learners while also supporting their mental health and well-being.

Use our live teaching platform to teach those students who are hard to reach, excluded, have mental health issues such as anxiety, behavioural issues, have problems with their physical health, have poor attendance or are school-phobic. You can have peace of mind in the knowledge that safeguarding is our number one priority – our system is designed to provide eyes-on learning, meaning your students are supervised, safeguarded and supported while continuing their education.

The assessment process and tools, allow the platform to identify knowledge and skill gaps and target the learning journey around each learner's needs

EDClass allows you to monitor and track the progress of your learners safely and securely online and help positively impact their attainment and attendance.

EDClass accommodates all types of learners including SEND students and those struggling to acquire an EHCP. Schools can drastically reduce their workload and time spent searching for solutions for their students who require support as EDClass can help quickly and efficiently!

Our observation areas enable your authorised staff to see your students working at home and monitor their learning through our tracking system. In fact, with EDClass, you can monitor and track any of your off-site students’ learning from any school in your trust.

You can personalise the learning of any student on the platform – a student using the system occupies a ‘seat’ - students can be alternated on a seat meaning you decide the times a student engages with their ‘pathway’ of lessons. You also choose the method of curriculum delivery, the teaching content and the lessons in the pathway.

We are proven to:

  • Provide an alternative provision for all your schools under one central platform
  • Increase attainment and attendance
  • Deliver whole-school improvement
  • Achieve positive outcomes trust-wide
