Red Kite Learning Trust Harrogate Grammar SchoolHomework4 Planner App
Red Kite Learning Trust were looking for a bespoke digital homework planner solution for all their students to quickly access information they needed via their portable devices.
We were able to offer Homework4 our feature rich, web and app homework planner as a perfect solution. Available as a mobile app for iOS and Android or via any internet connected web browser, Homework4 is a simple, quick and effective tool to combat homework issues in any school. We added a customised Parent Portal module, enabling parents to check attendance and behaviour - as well as a feature for teachers to mark homework as completed. This clever system allows teachers to schedule homework for their classes plus give students and parents rapid access to this information, it also includes alerts and reminders to students individually or by class groups. These features covered off all areas of the brief for the Trust.
We have worked closely with Concept4 to create our custom planner app, Homework4, for teachers, students and parents. The whole process revolved around building a clear vision of what we wanted to achieve and the Concept4 team worked tirelessly to support and develop this. Throughout the journey our partnership has been one of collaboration and open communication on a very regular basis. It has been particularly rewarding to see this grow and flourish over the past 9 months and as a consequence of just how successful this has been we are continuing to work together to refine, enhance and build new functionality, such as a built in markbook and how to support students develop a greater awareness their own productivity. Our relationship with Concept4 has been extremely successful and in them we have found a partner who fully grasp the demands of the education section, our particular school's vision and who have a real desire to build long-term, innovative and mutually beneficial relationships. I cannot recommend more highly Concept4 as a company to work with.

The system was rolled out across Harrogate Grammar School - one of the school’s within the Red Kite Learning Trust and the feedback has been fantastic! We’re looking forward to working with the Trust to further develop their system in the near future.
