Go4Schools Letter to Parents
As part of our commitment to informing parents/carers about youngsters' progress whilst at school, we have an on-line internet based package that allows you to access your youngster's assessment and reporting history along with other information.
This package is called Go4Schools and will allow you to see:
- current attainment level(s) in each subject and other subject specific information
- how your youngster is progressing towards their teacher target levels
- attendance summary information
- termly report
- historical results achieved e.g. SATS
- Individual Education Plans (IEPs) – where applicable
An example of a student page is on the Hardwick Middle School Website.
Progress versus Target
At the start of each academic year, each youngster will be set a target to achieve by the end of the year. Usually this target is 2 sub levels progress from the point at which they were at the end of the previous year or in the case of Year 5, their entry level. There are 3 sub levels in each National Curriculum level, e.g. Level 4 includes the sub levels 4c, 4b and 4a.
We may challenge some of our students to make more than 2 sub levels progress. For example, in year 6 we may set a more challenging target to meet their Key Stage 1 (Year 2) to Key Stage 2 (year 6) progress target or if they have not made progress in the previous year. In these cases extra support is given.
In order to track progress, we set time specific targets; the level at which we would expect youngsters to be at each half term if they are to meet their end of year target level. We also record their end of year target.
In PE, because of the wide variety of modules studied, the termly target is the same as the end of year target, because levels are expected to fluctuate as opposed to steadily improve over the course of the academic year.
Please do look at progress alongside attainment. A summary of the average National Curriculum levels that students should achieve by the end of each academic year is also provided within the Guidance notes.
Reports to parents are published via Go4Schools each term. In the Autumn and Summer Terms these reports are a summary of your youngster’s Effort, Behaviour and Organisation in each subject. We publish the main report in the Spring term and this includes teacher comments and targets.
Individual Education Plans
Where applicable, IEPs for youngsters have been linked to your youngster’s Go4Schools record. This means that you can access the most recent IEP on-line at any time.
Logging onto Go4Schools
Go4Schools makes use of your email address in order for you to register with / log on to the site. You can only use the email address that is registered with the school, as this information links you to your youngster. There are a number of security measures in place so that only those parents/carers linked to each youngster can access the information.
In order to log on to Go4Schools, you can visit www.hardwickmiddle.suffolk.sch.uk and follow the link for Go4schools, or go directly to the parent page of the Go4Schools website: https://www.go4schools.com/parents/
You will need to log on as a first time user. Type in your e-mail address that is registered with the school (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) and request a password. You will receive a password to your registered email account (e.g. your gmail account), after which you can use your registered email and newly supplied password to log on to the Go4Schools parent site.
You can then change your password to something more memorable using the ‘My Settings’ section of the website.
If you have a youngster at another school using Go4Schools and you have registered the same email address with both schools, you will be given the choice as to which school you wish to view when you log on.
If you haven’t registered your e-mail address with Hardwick Middle School, you won’t be able to log on until you have contacted us and registered an e-mail address. You can do this using the contact e-mail: email@example.com. Also, please use this address to make changes to your contact information or if you have any queries about the progress information.
We hope you will find having access to regular information on-line about your youngster useful and informative.
