Regular attendance and participation in school is an important factor for educational success. Students who are regular non-attenders are at risk of alienation from education that can lead to decreased options in future life.
With the statutory requirement to report attendance figures comes the additional need to look at why pupils aren’t attending. It’s important to get to the centre of why a child refuses to attend and to put support in place through educational strategies.
EDVirtual is an innovative online learning resource that can help your academy achieve its target attendance.
Our platform can be accessed from any location that your establishment deems suitable for learning, allowing you to support learners that have difficulty attending classes within a mainstream provision.“The results have been incredible. Two of our students have recently informed us that they want return to mainstream education!
With a virtual classroom, we’re able to ensure our students receive classwork and homework regularly, and we can monitor their progress and give them the support they need, so that when the time comes, the transition back into the classroom goes smoothly.”
Ash Kahn – Assistant Headteacher, Sheffield Inclusion Centre
We currently work in partnership with academies all across the UK, helping them to:
•claim attendance for their students whether on-site, off-site or in inclusion
•engage and motivate students through personalised learning pathways suited to their individual abilities and needs
•use our virtual classroom to effectively communicate with off-site learners to maintain constant contact and ensure they are getting the support that they need
•track and monitor pupils’ attendance and progress to produce reports for Ofsted inspections
•provide a safe and secure alternative provision for your students, allowing them to learn, progress and attain in an environment that is suited to their specific needs
By using our virtual classroom your school can stream lessons live for both student and teacher viewing, enabling the teacher to effectively communicate and educate the students while they are unable to attend school.
There are over 10,000 interactive quizzes and puzzles incorporated into our lessons, creating a more interesting and engaging environment to combat persistent absences caused by boredom.
Our qualified support staff and tutors offer live online support for all students whether they are on-site or off-site. Our tutors help students through their pathways taking into account their current learning ability. The work students have completed will also be marked by our tutors.
