What is MCAS?
MCAS is a website and app for parents that is linked to our data management system in school. It provides:
- access to real-time Attendance, Assessment and Behavioural information;
- communication facilities;
- instant access to published reports.
We use MCAS in the following ways:
- to store and share your child’s assessment
- to share your child's behaviour (rewards and sanctions) information
- for book parent consultation meetings
Other ways we communicate:
- We use our Year Group Noticeboards on the website for information relevant to the whole year group.
- We use the calendar on the school website for events.
- For now, childcare, specialist clubs, trips and events should continue to be booked via Laser. We will let you know when we are ready to use MCAS for these bookings.
