GO 4 Schools Mobile App - Quick Start Guide for Parents

The GO 4 Schools Mobile App keeps you informed about any of your children who attend a school that subscribes to GO 4 Schools and ensures you can see how they are performing at school.

The App currently allows you to:

  • View your child's timetable.
  • View your child's homework (including details of the homework set, attached documents and links to websites).
  • View your child's attendance.
You will also receive a summary of new homework tasks for your child at the end of the school day.

For more help with the App please visit the FAQ page.

Who can use the App?

Parents who have children at schools with active GO 4 Schools subscriptions that include the App.

How to get the App

The App is completely free of charge to both parents and students, where the school has a subscription to the GO 4 Schools App module and can be downloaded from:

Google Play and the Google Play logo are trademarks of Google LLC.
Apple, the Apple logo, iPhone, and iPad are trademarks of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries and regions. App Store is a service mark of Apple Inc.

How to log in to the App

  1. Tap on the App to open.
  2. Type in your email address and password. This is the same email address and password you use to log into the GO 4 Schools website.
  3. Click on "log in". If you are a first-time user you will need to log into the website first to receive your password.

The homepage shows a student’s current timetable and overview of the status of their homework. Tap on the timetable or homework to view more information.

How to view your child's homework

The homework card allows you to filter by ongoing, extended, pending, and homework history.

Tap on the specific homework you wish to view.

Detailed homework information is visible with attachments and weblinks. If the school tracks homework you can see when a class teacher has ticked off the completion of Homework tasks or marks if the work has been assessed. Currently students cannot tick off homework tasks as complete.

How to view your messages

Tap on the menu in the top-left corner to access messages and settings.

From the menu you can view messages, or swap between schools and select individual students with GO 4 Schools accounts. Your settings can also be accessed from this menu.

In the message inbox tap on the message for more detail. Your messages will be organised by date order and titled by areas such as Homework and Behaviour.

Tap back on messages and then your child's name to return to the main screen.

How to view your child's timetable

From the main screen tap on the timetable for more information.

You are then presented with today's timetable. You can tap or swipe to previous and future days at the top.

How to view your child's attendance

The attendance information is displayed on the main App page and shows the overall percentage attendance as a chart with details for authorised and unauthorised absence including a count of late marks. Where an unknown mark is displayed this may be due to the school waiting for confirmation for the reason of the absence.
