How can I use Go4schools?
At a glance
This section shows some general information about your child. Please contact the college if there are any changes to these details.
You will be able to view your child’s timetable.
This section provides you with the grades and marks your child has achieved in the different areas assessed in each subject.
GCSE/KS5 Target (KS4/5 only)
This is the aspirational target we have set for your child for the End of Key Stage 4/5.
Expected Level (KS3 only)
This is the aspirational target we have set for your child for the end of the academic year using KS2 SAT scores and CAT4 data. Your child will be given a target of Emerging, Developing, Secure, Advanced or Exceptional for each assessed piece of work they complete.
This is the grade that staff feel your child is presently working at, it is not indicative of where they might end up at the end of the academic year.
At Expected Level? (KS3) or Meeting GCSE/KS5 Target? (KS4/5)
A simple indicator that shows if they are meeting, exceeding or not yet at their target level. There is no expectation they will meet their target until the end of the academic year or qualification.
This is the grade of any qualifications that your child may already have gained.
Please note that you are also able to view the results of any modules that your child has either completed or is due to be completed in a subject area.
This section provides an overview of attendance and any absences.
The attendance records are updated every 24 hours.
This section provides the most recent positive and negative behaviour events. Positive events are green shaded and negative events are red shaded; you can find out more about an event by clicking on the blue highlighted text. If you click on Full behaviour Record, you can see all the events recorded since the start of the academic year.
Progress and reports
Reports are generated at different times during the year. Year 7, 10 and 12 will receive a shortened report in the first instance to show how they have settled into the year.
Pupils will only receive a comment on reports where their teacher feels they either have a concern or the pupil is not on track to meet their target by the end of the academic year. These should be discussed as a matter of course at the preceding parents evening.
Concerns are highlighted as either Attitude, Commitment or Diligence. A full list of the expected standard of behaviour can be found here.

It is a privilege working closely with parents to improve standards; please don’t hesitate to contact the college, if you need any further information.
