Next week you will receive log in details for a new initiative we are introducing. The details will allow you to log into an App called ‘Marvellous Me’. We are introducing this following feedback from the Parent Survey last term where parents expressed that they wanted to have more information about their child’s ongoing progress. This system will allow teachers to send short messages about what the children have been up to as a whole class but also when appropriate to individual parents/carers when their child has done something ‘marvellous’. Parents will be able to respond to say they have seen the update by sending a ‘high 5’ back. We also intend to send more text message updates via this system as it is much more cost effective than via The School Gateway, so it is extremely important that you install this on your phone. You can share the log in for your child across multiple devices which does allow you to share it with Grandparents etc… should you wish to. You can also add multiple children within the App so it only needs to be installed once no matter how many children you have at our school. It can be accessed on a laptop or computer if that is easier for you. We must receive the return slip giving your permission to send updates in this way, this will be on the bottom of the letter you receive next week. We appreciate your support with this and we hope it helps to improve the feedback you receive from this. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. We will take feedback on this at our next Parent Forum meeting on 3rd February.
