The decision to home educate your child can be a hard one and can be for so many differing reasons.
At EDLounge, using our EDSeat approach we continue to break those barriers to learning and work closely with, schools, parents and students to give them the best outcomes.
The business has grown because we listen, we are now going active with our home education package, one of the key areas we needed to do was make packages affordable.
At the moment we run a school day 9.00am till 4.00pm, and students can log on and work flexibly in their own time. The school day may possibly change to longer hours to work with students with chronic fatigue and mental illness.
Our content and work are accessible at all times, the school day is when our teachers are on hand to help.

Students taking exams directly with EDLounge at the EDLounge centre will be entered for Edexcel pearsons.
If sitting exams at a local school/exam centre we need to know chosen exam boards for the correct lesson pathways
We can add supportive science lessons, however, we can’t cover the practical side required for final exams.
LIFE Skills within our independent study tab:
•DRUGS and KNIFE CRIMES
With thousands of lessons and content for all, this is a perfect resource to educate, teach and qualify the home educated students.
One to one sessions and personalised reintegration plans can now take place so that every child has an individual and personalised learning pathway with achievable milestones and targets (with support).
How we started working with children learning exclusively at home
EDLounge in 2016 started to work with a handful of students who were saying no to their educational provision or could not be accessed that often by outreach staff where the majority of their education took place in their homes, libraries, and drop in centres with a care worker, outreach worker or off-site teacher worked together once every few weeks due to time restraints, staffing demands and funding.
We were contacted by Ash Khan (Deputy Head) from Sheffield Inclusion Centre as he had 70 plus students throughout the great city of Sheffield that his out reach workers could only see a few times a month. Overnight, Jane Horsfield bought into the virtual classroom ideal and began to run the EDSeat platform for her outreach cohort so that it was safe, tracked and recorded for each learner so that most importantly they each had a unique learning pathway and drop-in sessions to work with Jane and others. The results were unreal.
Through the creation of EDSeat this has drastically improved the education to a range of students that are ideal for PRUs, Multi Academy Trusts and local councils to use the resource to break down barriers for students that are:
•anxious to school or a learning environment
•struggling with mental health issues
By trained and professional staff being able to remote access into the portal to offer teaching sessions and support periods every student can log in every morning and afternoon to gain a personalised education with vocational sessions tailored for their needs. Transport, travel, time barriers and insurance cost that have restricted a vast range of students being educated has been answered and removed over night.
