The Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage encourages a 2-way partnership between practitioners and parents,
“2. 1. In their interactions with children, practitioners should respond to their own day-to-day observations about children’s progress and observations that parents and carers share”
Why is 2-way communication between teachers and parents important?
“Education is a conversation, not a transfusion”
Sir Ken Robinson
Learning Ladders create the conditions for conversations about learning to take place; conversations between teachers and students, teachers and parents, parents and students.
Research shows that “The more parents are engaged in the education of their children, the more likely
their children are to succeed in the education system” (Goodall and Vorhaus 2011).
Which types of observations can parents share?
Parents can share photographs, videos or audio files with practitioners through Ladders at Home, the parent portal.
Feedback from parents informs future teaching and learning, creating a joined up picture of a child’s progress.
How can teachers manage this communication, at scale?
Teachers have a dedicated ‘Notifications’ feature in Learning Ladders. Within this feature, they can view and respond to all messages sent to them.
Manageable communication around learning with no extra strain on teacher workloads, all in one system.
