Key Features

Learning Ladders brings everything you need together under one roof.
 Simple to use, the software is flexible and grows with you.

Plan for pupil progress

  • With Learning Ladders, you have the tools and information you need to ensure that pupils make measurable progress. 
  • Adjust everything to suit the needs of your school, ensuring that pupil progress can be captured formatively and in real-time. 
  • Design your school’s curriculum your way

Develop your curriculum your way

  • Create a series of pupil-friendly ‘I can’ statements that allow teachers, pupils and parents to have meaningful conversations about learning. 
  • At the click of a button, you can import the DfE award-winning curriculum from Hiltingbury Junior School. Alternatively, why not try the National Curriculum or explore options from NAHT and Arabic content developed with local educational leaders?
  • With Learning Ladders, you have the flexibility to build your curriculum, use our award-winning content, combine the two, or use something completely different!

Choose or create your curriculum in any language

  • Alternatively, why not try the standard National Curriculum or explore options from NAHT, or even specialist subjects such as Arabic and Islamic Studies that we’ve developed with local educational leaders, or create your own?

See pupil data in real-time

  • At the click of a button, generate reports on any aspect of pupil attainment and progress. Filter by year group, term, teacher, subject and more. 
  • Your data will be presented in an easy to understand, interactive chart that will help to inform your school improvement planning. 

Data that informs teaching & learning

  • With the powerful tools inside Learning Ladders, your teachers and school leaders will always have up-to-date information. As teachers make use of the formative assessment tools, data becomes instantly available to inform decisions in the classroom.
  • Stop depending on termly data drops and start making decisions based on what pupils need right now. 

Instantly view data, filtered by groups

  • What proportion of EAL pupils are progressing above expectation? How many Year 5 boys are struggling with reading? Is your Pupil Premium funding helping students to improve in numeracy? With Learning Ladders, the data you need is right in front of you. 
  • Turn your school’s data into actionable insights with just a few clicks, allowing leaders and governors to see where investing resources will have the most significant impact. 

Your assessment, your way

  • Learning Ladders gives your school an assessment framework that aligns with your curriculum. At the click of a button, teachers can assess pupil progress against a series of ‘I can’ statements that represent the skills and knowledge planned in your curriculum. 
  • It’s your school’s assessment; you choose how it’s implemented. 

Data-informed teacher judgements

  • Teachers know their pupils better than any assessment platform ever can. That’s why Learning Ladders provides teachers with recommended judgements but allows them to override the computer-generated data. 
  • Pupils and parents can be confident that reports are more than just a termly ‘data dump’ – teachers’ knowledge informs them of their pupils. 
  • Focus on meaningful outcomes that combine the best of your teachers’ professional judgement with insightful data gathered in day-to-day formative assessments. 

Assessments seamlessly matched to your curriculum

  • With Learning Ladders, your assessment and curriculum tools are in the same place. This means that you know your pupil progress data is mapped against the knowledge and skills you want pupils to acquire. 
  • Easily see your curriculum as a series of ‘I can’ statements that show progress throughout each academic year. Teachers then assess against each statement to create meaningful reports for pupils, parents and school leaders. 

Gap Analysis tools

  • For every pupil, view the precise details of what they can and cannot do. Recognise their gaps in learning and plan for each pupil’s next steps.
  • With your curriculum and assessment tools in the same place, you can quickly see how pupils are progressing towards expected learning.

Visualise data so that you can focus on teaching & learning

  • Teachers need pupil progress data to inform their planning, but they shouldn’t have to spend hours creating reports. 
  • Help teachers to focus on delivering outstanding lessons by giving them access to robust data that’s updated in real-time. 
  • Using formative assessment information captured during lessons, teachers can instantly view attainment and progress over time. 

Individual pupil progress data

  • Enable structured conversations about learning with pupils and parents by looking at easily understood tables, charts and graphs.
  • With every judgement mapped to your school’s curriculum, you can easily show pupils what they need to do to meet their full potential.
