Kingdown now has the Go4Schools Mobile App

The App is a great way to keep in touch with how your child is doing at Kingdown School.

The Go4Schools Mobile App keeps you informed about any of your children to ensure you can see how they are performing at school. The App is completely free of charge to both parents and students and can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.

What the App can show you?

Currently you can view the timetable, homework and attendance information for your children. This includes looking in depth at the homework set, including attached documents. You will also receive a summary of new homework tasks at the end of the school day.

Using the Go4Schools App will enable you to view on your smartphone or tablet the following information on your child:

Timetable

  • Summary of current lesson and the next lesson
  • More detailed information on your child’s daily timetable including timings and teachers

Homework

  • New tasks set
  • Tasks due today
  • Tasks due tomorrow
  • Tasks due within 7 days
  • Extended pieces of homework set

Additionally, you will be able to click on homework pieces to access:

  • Detailed homework explanations
  • Website addresses required to complete the homework
  • Downloadable, attached documents

Attendance

  • Counts of possible sessions and overall percentage attendance
  • Authorised and unauthorised absences
  • Late marks

Behaviour

  • Overview of positive and negative behaviour events and points
  • Details of each behaviour event including subject, points and date

The GO 4 Schools App will also send to your smartphone and/or email address summary notifications/emails on:

  • the homework set in the last 24 hours as well as homework due in the next 7 days so that you are fully informed on the homework that your child must complete.
  • Detentions that have been set for your child to attend.
  • Updates of behaviour events.

Additionally, all messages sent to you can be found in your message inbox in the App or in your online inbox on your child’s page on the GO 4 Schools website.

To receive information on your child via the App, it is essential that we have your current email address. Please let us know if this has changed.

Common problems parents have faced so far

Some parents have been trying to use a students’ email address (easily identified by the fact it ends in @kingdown.wilts.sch.uk) rather than a parents’ one. You can only use the parental email address that the school has for you. If you are unsure, please write a note to update your email address and give to your son / daughter to hand to their tutor. We can then update our records.

Some parents have more than one email address, and aren’t using the one that we’ve got for them. Again, please make sure that the school has the right email address for you.
