The EDLounge Cover software offers a unique provision where any school can provide the delivery of high quality learning for students. It's a brand new approach to delivering ‘cover sessions’, which allows for all aspects of teaching and learning policy to be adhered to. This approach can save massive amounts on budget whilst simultaneously reducing teacher stress by not having to cover their absent colleagues' lessons. This unique model has been produced through the vision of a focus group of Head Teachers, Bursars, Cover Supervisor Management and SLT.
Whilst working with our focus group, it was paramount that all aspects of the students’ teaching and learning followed clear pathways and achieved specific objectives whilst under supervision. Whilst this is simply achieved through using EDLounge Cover software, other departmental and curriculum materials can be taught through the process to match department planning, schemes of work, along with short, medium and long-term plans.
Through the use of the EDLounge Cover software, we will reduce the excessive burdens of planning, preparation and assessment on those teachers that are covering absence. The setting of pathways and marking of work is easy and does not break any protocols. Our EDLounge Cover software enables you to track, record and provide details of work to be completed by pupils. The information can be provided by the Head of Department/Subject Coordinator, SLT or Headteacher.
All school procedures have been investigated, so that the EDLounge Cover package includes the facility to provide cover for the following areas:
- Emergency cover
- Ad-Hoc cover
- Teacher absence
- ‘Rarely cover’
- ‘Unforeseeable circumstances’
- School visits
- Leave of absence arrangements
- Gained time
The EDLounge Cover software and resources do not breach teachers’ other entitlements under the STPCD, PPA time or Management and Leadership time – we simply aim to make your life much easier!
