We Are Officially a Learning Ladders ‘World Class Assessment’ Member School. RAK Academy family of schools is now officially accredited as a Learning Ladders Member School. This is part of our commitment to providing ‘World Class Assessment’ to all our pupils.
Learning Ladders helps teachers, parents and children to have better conversations about learning. The all-in-one system supports teachers with assessment data, parents with resources to continue learning at home, and children with ownership over their progress and achievements.
Parental involvement has a significant impact on academic achievement. As such, all parents at RAK Academy have access to Learning Ladders’ bank of teacher-written articles to support learning outside the classroom. You can also find easily digestible information about your child’s learning objectives; evidence in portfolios; homework; and termly or end of year reports.
Matt Koster-Marcon, CEO of Learning Ladders, says: “By becoming an official Learning Ladders Member School, RAK Academy is demonstrating that they make parental engagement and high-quality assessment a priority.
“Research has shown that involving parents and carers in a child’s education has a huge impact on outcomes. We support schools and parents to close learning gaps as part of our mission to help children learn more and learn better, and we’re delighted that RAK Academy is joining as part of this mission too.”
