Accelerating improvement together

The GO 4 Schools Hub Network was established in 2014, which was developed to share the expertise of our more experienced users to support other schools to develop their use of GO 4 Schools. We have a number of exemplar schools across England and Wales within our Hub School network.

What can Hub Schools offer?

Our Hub School network provides pro-active support for schools across their region, delivered by an on-site super-user of GO 4 Schools. They are regularly updated on new features as they become live and offer superb training facilities. Enhanced CPD opportunities build and strengthen the knowledge for other professions that share a passion for raising achievement within their school.

How Hub Schools can support new users

If you are considering using GO 4 Schools to enhance your effective use of data, the Hub School in your area can showcase all aspects of our system, which includes: Online Markbooks, Attendance, Behaviour, Parental Engagement, Homework, Progress Reports and Seating Plans. Through an informative demonstration, Hub Schools are able to show the value of real-time school statistics and how they use this to respond with immediate and effective interventions across key groups is a powerful experience.

Continuing Professional Development

Hub Schools plan a calendar of events throughout the academic year, including demonstrations of GO 4 Schools and events to demonstrate their best practice in the use of data. Whether you need to renew your awareness of specific functionality, Hub School training events are high quality, well received and offer excellent value for money.

Our Current Hub Schools

Sponne School, Northamptonshire

"We believe that GO 4 schools is an excellent product that could enhance the data intelligence and performance of schools at all levels, ensuring that staff, students and parents work together to achieve the best outcomes. As part of our teaching school status, where we find that schools at both primary and secondary levels are looking for training in the use of interpretation of data, effective and efficient data solutions are sought after. We are able to offer seminars, conferences and training sessions for up to 30 delegates for both primary and secondary."
How to find us

Thurston Community College, Suffolk

"Long-term objective: To pioneer the use of GO 4 Schools as an integral tool for supporting student progress, attainment and achieving equality of academic opportunity across our student community. Preferred Geographical Area: East of England (primarily Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridge and Essex). Would look to provide support to both the Primary and Secondary phases."
How to find us

Oriel High School, West Sussex

"We are hoping to be able to support other schools in their use of GO 4 Schools. It has revolutionised our understanding and use of data and we would like to support others in this. We are able to support schools across the South East, particularly South of London. Our experience is mainly secondary but we are happy to support primary colleagues also."

Bluecoat Academy, Nottinghamshire

"At Bluecoat Academy we are outward facing and are happy to share our expertise and knowledge with others, recognising this as an opportunity to network and gain reciprocal information from other schools and academies. We have worked closely with GO 4 Schools since first buying the product and continue to collaborate and share development ideas and proposals which work for teaching staff and senior leaders first and foremost, but which also adapt to respond to new initiatives in education, e.g. life without levels and changes in accountability measures. Bluecoat Academy welcomes colleagues from across the East Midlands and beyond."

Oakwood High School, Rotherham

"GO 4 Schools drives every aspect of our support for pupil attainment, attendance and behaviour. We use the full suite of modules to track pupil progress, identify barriers, intervene and monitor the impact of our intervention as well as communicating with pupils and their parents/carers. We believe in the principle of collaboration, both within and beyond our local community. We are happy to share our journey with other schools whilst continuing to develop our own practice."
How to find us

St Hild's Church of England School, Hartlepool

"We are a smaller than average secondary school in the North of England and changed to GO 4 Schools in January 2016. As a school we required a system to allow us to become more transparent with the information we collected on pupil progress, have a means to share the information easily with Parents/Carers, Pupils and the Governing Body, and to help all pupils make rapid progress in their education. GO 4 Schools is the product that is helping us achieve this. GO 4 Schools is intuitive to how schools operate by constantly improving the facilities they offer. This is supporting the development of our school including adapting to the new expectations in examinations and assessments at all levels.

We currently use GO 4 Schools as the 'one stop' information tool for all staff. We track the progress of all pupils through GO 4 Schools, assessment information is available for all to see in real time, allowing good practice to be easily shared and monitored enhancing pupil progress. We also use GO 4 Schools effectively for monitoring attendance and recording the behaviour of our pupils both positive and negative. All Subject Leaders have found progress information more accessible while Year Leaders have utilised GO 4 Schools to have all of the information for our children at their fingertips. SEND referrals have been streamlined using these systems.

Parents and Carers are able to see up to date information for their child which has helped to enhance home school communication. Feedback from Parents and Carers has praised the improved quality of written reports.

Although we are relatively new to GO 4 Schools, we feel it is utilised effectively and we would be happy to share our experiences of the impact it has had in our school. "
