MCAS - My Child at School

We launched our new parent app, MCAS, in May 2023.

MCAS allows you to report absences and view key information like your child's timetable, attendance and behaviour. We will also be using this app for most communications and alerts from the school.

Parents have received emails with details on how to activate their account. If you have not, please see the information below.

    1. Uppercase and lowercase letters
    2. Numbers
    3. Punctuation marks
    4. Other symbols
  3. not contain dictionary words, where possible;
  4. not include simple substitutions of characters, e.g. "p4$$w0rd";

We advises all parents to use strong passwords to protect the confidential personal information contained within MCAS. Parents should also avoid using obvious choices of passwords, such as the name of your child or pet, as someone could find such information elsewhere.

Do Not Share Passwords Never disclose your password to another individual, whether this be a family member or other individual, for any reason. If you think that someone else knows your password, change it immediately.
