EDLounge was created in 2009 as an inclusive resource to educate students that were in inclusion, exclusion, vulnerable, at risk, not attending classes (English and Maths especially), persistently absent, not doing homework, or those who were foundational, disengaged or demotivated.
Over recent terms EDLounge can help your school:
- Engage Vulnerable Students
