My Child At School App

As you are aware we previously used the My Ed App for communicating to parents.  September 2022, we launched our new parent app called My Child At School (MCAS). This our preferred method of communication with you using app notifications. 

What is MCAS? 

MyChildAtSchool (MCAS) is a portal that can enable parents to view their child’s academic performance in real-time via a web browser or mobile app. This facility allows exclusive access to key academic dates, attendance information, timetables and the personal details the academy holds for you and your child. 

The following modules which are available in MCAS: 

  • Notifications 
  • Pupil details check/update/amend
  • Timetable 
  • Attendance 
  • Behaviour 
  • Parents evening booking 
  • Reports 
  • Assessment 
  • Dinner/Dinner money

Downloading the app and logging in 

The app is really simple to download and access using the email address that you have supplied to Hanson Academy. The app is available through the Google Store or Apple Store, just search for My Child At School app by Bromcom Computers Plc

As we advised before the Summer, we no longer use ParentPay and the MCAS app is the only way to upload funds to purchase food and drinks in the academy. Please note any existing ParentPay funds (credit) will automatically transfer to your MCAS account.  You can view the balance in Dinner module and top up the balance in Dinner Money.  

Please also note the MCAS app is required to book Parents Evening appointments.  

If you need any support in downloading or accessing the MCAS app, please contact the academy via reception or email – no activation code required but you may need to check the email address we hold for you as it will only allow priority 1 parent/carer access.
