Go 4 Schools Home Learning (from September 2021)
We believe strongly in the value of home learning. It allows teachers to set tasks which extend and support the taught curriculum, helps to develop good study habits, reinforces the home/school partnership in providing the child’s educational experience and as a result improves students’ progress.
From September 2021 all home learning will be set on Go 4 Schools rather than Show My Homework. The school has been using Go 4 Schools for a number of years to report attendance, progress and behaviour to parents and by moving home learning into Go 4 Schools parents and students will have fewer platforms to log into.
In addition students and parents can see all Go 4 Schools information including home learning, attendance, progress and behaviour via the Go 4 Schools app which is available for free from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
To login to the GO 4 Schools App, your username and password are the same as the GO 4 Schools site.
Students will be given a home learning timetable, and will receive up to three pieces of home learning a night, which should each take 30 minutes to complete.
If you are concerned about the nature or amount of home learning set for your child, please get in touch by telephone or email with the relevant Head of Department. She/he will discuss your concerns with you and the subject teacher and take any steps which are thought to be necessary.
If students have forgotten their log in details they should contact their form tutor.
In addition, in the new academic year FP Online is being replaced with FP Cloud, a Microsoft SharePoint powered intranet site for students and teachers to share work and resources connected to Microsoft Teams. Further information will be provided on this new platform to students and parents shortly.
