As part of our commitment to inform parents/carers about your child’s progress, we have an on-line internet based package that allows you to access assessment levels, reports and other information.
This package is called Go4Schools and will allow you to see:
- current attainment levels in each subject and other subject specific information
- how your child is progressing towards their end of year teacher target levels and national expectation levels
- attendance information
- termly reports
Progress versus Target
At the start of each academic year, each child will be set a target to achieve by the end of the year. Usually this target is 2 sub levels progress from their attainment level at the end of the previous year. In the case of Year 5, it is a minimum of 2 sub levels progress from 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 expected progress in the previous year. In these cases extra support is given.
Information about your child’s targets and national averages is also in your child’s planner.
Reports to parents are published via Go4Schools each term. Our Autumn and Summer Term Reports are a summary of your child’s Effort, Behaviour and Organisation in each subject. We publish the main report in the Spring term and this includes teacher comments and targets.
Logging on to 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 child. There are a number of security measures in place so that only those parents/carers linked to each child 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. email@example.com) 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 child 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: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 child useful and informative.
