Our school app, My Child at School (MCAS), makes it easier and more convenient than ever for parents to keep up to date with school.
We operate a paperless and cashless system in school, with all bookings and payments being made through the MCAS app – available 24/7 to fit in with every parent’s lifestyle. The easiest way to use MCAS is through the free parent app; however, there is also a website version. If you want any help setting up the app, downloading it, or even a quick demo and training session – Mr Bean or any of the office staff will be happy to help!

My Child at School FAQs
Below are some common questions about MCAS, if the answer you’re looking for isn’t here, please just ask!
Can I have more than one child on the app?
Absolutely! There’s just one login for the app, and then you are able to select which child something relates to when making a payment or booking a place on a club etc.
Can more than one person have the app at once?
Yes – the app can be downloaded and used by anyone that has permission on your child’s account.
What cards does the app accept for payments?
All major credit and debit cards are accepted.
How quick are responses to app messages?
Our lovely office staff will reply as quickly as possible, but in busy times this may take longer so we recommend to ring school if your query is urgent.
I’m not sure how to download and set-up the app
No problem! Just come in and see us at any of our offices, or see Mr Bean. Try coming in at quieter times and we’ll be able to spend more time giving you a run-through.
