Regular attendance and participation in schooling is an important factor in education and life success.
Students who are regular non-attenders are at risk of alienation from education which can lead to fewer future learning opportunities.
EDLounge is a great tool for motivating non-attenders and for creating a positive learning system for learners who are absent with our online, live support.
Your organisation can use the Virtual Classroom and support within EDLounge to improve attendance. You can create individualised programmes and bespoke learning pathways for learners to follow which can match your specific schemes of work/units of study.
We work in partnership with academies and educational establishments to ensure comprehensive levels of safeguarding, well-being, supervision and monitoring. We track attendance, grades and progress for individuals and groups.
Working with EDLounge you have the capacity to:
- Reduce suspensions and exclusions, lower persistent absenteeism and enhance learning; giving learners the opportunity to work independently.
- Improve the knowledge and understanding of disengaged students across a range of subjects in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
- Engage learners through interactive learning approaches.
- Increase motivation and attendance whilst promoting fun learning.
- Enable teaching staff to track, monitor and view graphical data of students' progress in English, Maths and Science as well as other subjects.
EDLounge learners can also receive ATTENDANCE grades whilst completing lessons with live, online support: the platform tracks 'idle time' online and 'time in learning'.

DFE Guidelines to Alternative Provision:
Schools on the right package can claim attendance codes for learners providing they follow strict guidelines.
Our guidelines are based on the DFE guidelines for Alternative Provision.
The latest version has added areas regards
'Ensuring a good education for children who cannot attend school because of health needs’
We offer and support all National Curriculum subjects at GCSE, but we also cater for Functional Skills and a range of vocational subjects and qualifications. Working together we aim to break barriers to learning and deliver for all students.
'good academic attainment on par with mainstream schools – particularly in English, maths and science (including IT) – with appropriate accreditation and qualifications;'
the specific personal, social and academic needs of pupils are properly identified and met in order to help them to overcome any barriers to attainment;
improved pupil motivation and self-confidence, attendance and engagement with education; and
clearly-defined objectives, including the 'next steps' following the placement, such as reintegration into mainstream education, further education, training or employment.
Our guidelines for attendance codes cover different areas, but benefits all involved.
