The diagram below show how EDClass is being used in many ways for alternative provision using Remote education via our interactive blended learning approach.

This is how the our one to one tutoring works for each learner when working with our live or on demand teaching staff. You can use EDClass as your alternative provision for any type of distance learning tool. Your staff can use it for pastoral, behavioural or for curriculum catch up delivery.  The diagram shows how every one involved can see progress, attainment and where each learner is safely working. We pride ourselves on our safeguarding. This identifies how we securely educate the learners. Safeguarding is our key element.  All our staff:

  • are recruited in line with our Safer Recruitment Policy
  • are Enhanced DBS checked
  • are COVID 19 Psychological first aid trained
  • are Trained to DSL level
  • for example all our teaching staff, support staff and HLTAs are list 99 checked
  • have strong relationships with local authorities

We have over 12,000 lessons and the diagram above identifies how many aspects EDClass can become involved with, not just being your alternative provision. There are a range of approaches with EDClass being used for isolation, exclusion, 6th day provision, detention and behaviour but much, much more.

  • Whether teaching and learning take place 
  • Questions and answer sessions
  • Personalised and pathways of learning
  • Blended and flexible through differentiated tasks
  • Evidence of teaching
  • Artificial intelligence that tracks eyes, head and body movement
  • Multi target groups of students on different tasks learning at different paces 

Safeguarding and security

  • Who is actually there learning
  • If they are safe, you do not just look at blank black screens
  • If the environment is safe and secure to learn in
  • Through monitoring health and safety incidents
  • Safety introductions, 
  • Adhere to procedures and policies for safeguarding
  • Interaction with wellbeing and HLTAs
  • Via webcam, numerous additional cams or locked down application
  • Wellbeing support and HLTAs can access and alongside teachers

Attendance and tracking

  • Who is on and where they are logged on
  • Live attendance and classroom submission tracker
  • Attendance for AM and PM sessions

  • Start and stop points
  • Match policies for attendance, lateness and punctuality
  • Parental access
  • Screen and browser are locked and recorded


  • A recording of everything taught, discussed, completed and clicked by staff and students is taken within every online session. Once the session is finished you can download it. The application and software enables a rear camera to show a 180 or 360 degree view of the environment.  All evidence is encrypted and securely sent to server where there is available to be evidenced by safeguarding, wellbeing, behaviour officers.  This enables you to go back to certain points and incidents to check accurately and identify what is actually happening.
