Celebrating achievement


MarvellousMe is an app aimed at early years and primary settings, which allows teachers to communicate positively with parents and carers. Founder Adrian Burt wanted more information about his children’s progress from their school, so he built an app that provides teachers with an easy and safe way to contact and engage with parents, sharing positive news about their child’s learning, character development and school rewards. Using MarvellousMe, teachers can


send updates on schoolwork, as well as giving colourful badges and house points linked to the school’s rewards and values. A teacher might send a message to 30 parents with a homework reminder, or to just one parent praising good work. This reduces teacher workload while improving parental and family


engagement. Should schools need to set remote work, this can be sent home via the app too. It’s ideal for separated and working parents, and grandparents or other family members can sign up too, keeping families involved even when they are apart. Mrs Pierpoint, headteacher, Heronswood Primary School and Pre-School, Kidderminster (410 pupils) says: ‘During the pandemic, giving out actual reward badges is best avoided, but they are vital. Children’s esteem needs boosting after so much time out of school. MarvellousMe is the perfect solution, and we can give out as many badges as we like. In two weeks, 99% of parents and


carers signed up to MarvellousMe, and we’d received thousands of “high- fi ves”, showing they are engaged in


their children’s learning in school. It’s great for sending a message to the whole school too. I sent a message about face coverings at the school gate, and the following day the majority of people were wearing them. MarvellousMe saves so much time.


Previously, teachers wrote in 30 home school diaries. Now, they can send a message to the whole class in one go. Teachers love that they can quickly send through the reward badges to parents and carers. Engaging with parents today isn’t about me sending a letter home anymore; it’s about contacting parents in a familiar format. MarvellousMe offers an easy way to deliver rewards and messages to parents and carers instantly.’
