MIS Functionality

In-line with our long-term plans, and as requested by many of our customers, we are now working on the development of 'full' online MIS functionality for those schools that are looking at alternatives to their current MIS. Our aim is to offer schools first-class functionality across the board, in a single, joined-up online system that lowers school overheads, streamlines their processes, and make more time available for everyone to help students.

Whether you are an existing customer or a new one, using GO 4 Schools as an add-on rather than a replacement for your MIS will always continue to be an option if that is your preference.

Much of the functionality required within an MIS is already available in GO 4 Schools:

  • Starter version – for in situ analysis of performance data.
  • Online markbooks - for recording detailed assessment data.
  • Online attendance – for recording and analysing session and lesson attendance.
  • Online behaviour – for recording and analysing positive and negative behaviour events.
  • Online seating plans – to help staff use attainment, attendance, behaviour and intervention information in the classroom.
  • Online homework – to set and track homework marks and completion.
  • Online progress reports – for academic, interim and full written progress reports for parents.
  • Parental access - Online parent and student access to attendance, behaviour, homework etc.
  • Governors view - Access to key performance statistics for Governors.
  • Trust view - Access to school-school comparison key performance indicators for Multi-Academy Trusts.

We will be building on these modules with support for:

  • Management of student records, including contact details, admissions, medical records, etc.
  • Management of staff records, including contact details, DBS checks, medical records, etc.
  • Management of parent records, including contact details, parental responsibility, court orders etc.
  • Management of exclusions and detentions.
  • Management of exam entries and exam timetables.
  • Document management.
  • School calendar and events diary.
  • School communications and a mobile app for parents and students.
  • School censuses.
  • CTF import and export.
  • Data migration from your existing MIS.
  • Timetabling – initial support will be offered for importing from 3rd party tools.

Where appropriate, the new functionality will also be made available to schools who want to stay with their existing MIS.

More information – including pricing - will be available in autumn 2017, and initial functionality will be previewed at BETT 2018. We aim to offer the service to customers from Summer 2018.

If you would like to receive more information about the MIS functionality as it comes available, please contact our Customer Service team on 01223 967556.
