My Child At School - MCAS
What is MyChildAtSchool?
MyChildAtSchool is an online portal that enables parents to view their child’s performance at school in real time via any modern web browser (e.g. Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari etc.) and for today’s busy parents, an app (for android or ios) which offers the same features.
Anytime access to Attendance, letters or important documents and the school calendar mean schools can keep parents fully informed electronically.
Communication through Push Notification (for the App), Announcements and important documents as well as enabling parent messaging to the school are all included features. Schools can use the Parent Evening bookings section to book or view their appointments.
Secure booking and Online Payments for Clubs, Trips, Wraparound before and after-school care. This feature rich online secure process gives schools total control over their cashless system. Even if not fully cashless in school, MCAS processes allow a school to manage and create orders manually.
The Online Payments option includes, but is not restricted to, payments with deposits, instalments and running balances, as well as the management of a range of payment types, refunds and vouchers, including Paypoint. Parents are kept informed of their balances and can receive reminders when payments are due or overdue. The whole online experience offers the same security as any online payment process and is complemented by in-school management tools.
As the process is fully GDPR compliant, parents are invited to setup their secure account, and when downloading the App, can add additional security including biometric authentication and a PIN for ease of use. Equally, schools can use the MCAS Parental Consent feature to enable parents to give/revoke their consent as required and has a feature to allow parents to inform the school of changes to their key contact details.
