I told my Governors yesterday that it is the best money I have spent in the two years I have been here!"
Sarah Skinner, Headteacher of Claydon High School, Suffolk
GO 4 Schools has made my job at least 30-40% easier. I can access information about a student, group or department at a click of a button. Our students log in and use GO as a matter of course every school day. Parents too have been highly supportive and enthusiastic – in fact, the level of engagement shown compared to printed reports has been outstanding!"
Principal, Neale-Wade Community College, Cambridgeshire
Heads love GO 4 Schools. Your life is made much easier by having today's key statistics about your school and individual students at your fingertips.
GO 4 Schools also appeals to cost-conscious headteachers and senior leaders who want to streamline internal processes and achieve efficiency savings.
Assessment leaders / Senior leaders
GO 4 Schools was a massive help in enabling us to target key pupils, and as a result our Level 2 English and Maths rose by 9%. The department that got the most out of it was English, who saw a massive 15% rise (despite stories in the national press), simply because the HOD was able to identify 1 or 2 pupils who were 1 or 2 marks off grade boundaries."
Acting Deputy Head, West Monmouth School, Torfaen
My Head of English said: 'It isn't everyday I get told to do less work for better outcomes!' High praise indeed!!"
Deputy Headteacher, Hadleigh High, Suffolk
Intuitive, easy to use yet flexible enough to provide ownership for staff and departments."
Deputy Headteacher, Chantry High School, Suffolk
Progress tracking made simple!"
Assessment Co-ordinator, Chantry High School & Sixth Form Centre, Suffolk
GO 4 Schools was extremely easy to install and with a very intuitive set-up I was able to load class data without any initial training. I was very impressed by the demonstration of it actually working in a school. We have had very positive feedback from our trial, with staff, students and parents all eager for us to start using this for real in September 2010."
Director of Learner Progress, Deben High School
How can we plan effective interventions and achieve whole school improvement if we don't have current information to refer to? Delays in the data collection process and endless spreadsheets waste valuable time and slow us down. We need classroom data in real-time."
Assistant Principal, Neale-Wade Community College
GO 4 Schools tracking tools improve the consistency and reliability of your data. They finally bring an end to dreaded data collections, replacing disconnected, fragmented spreadsheets with coherent, joined up information – freeing up your own time as well as that of other staff.
GO 4 Schools gives you an instantaneous, cross-curricular view to help you plan effective interventions. Data from GO 4 Schools also enables you to respond much faster to information requests from local authorities and Ofsted.
Heads of Faculty | Subject Leaders
It is an important tool to monitor student progress throughout the college. The ability to track the input of assessment data by staff members and comment banks is particularly useful."
Head of Faculty, Neale-Wade Community College
I used to find students on games now they're on GO 4 Schools!"
