Testimonial from The Co-operative Academy of Manchester

"The cooperative academy have been the highest attending high school  in Manchester for the last four years and constantly strive to keep the attendance at a high level, We currently have  900 students on  roll,  The attendance up to half term 5 this academic year was 97.21% and our PA  level was 3%. In the last released DfE’s figures we came in the top 1% of England

The Academy is based in an area of low income families with a high proportion of students coming from challenging complex backgrounds,  Keeping students engaged and attending regularly is a daily challenging task.

We were introduced to EDLounge in the middle of the academic year 2016 – 2017 the impact on our attendance was instant and has a positive impact on our figures.

I can confidently say that if we had had the package sooner we would have had a lower PA figure and increased attendance.  With the purchase of the EDClass seat we have access to EDLounge which we have set up in our internal Exclusion suite, this provides students who would normally have to work from work sheets, access to lessons and course work that they would normally be completing in lessons.

In my role  as Attendance Manager and  Safeguarding Officer I  am often asked to  visit  other schools and Academies to offer support in improving their attendance, I have  no problem in endorsing the EDLounge  company to  Schools and Academies  as a tool to improve their attendance and support students.

Many Thanks "

Jenny - Attendance Manager & Safeguarding Officer
