Updating how we communicate. New ‘My Child at School’ website and App
We are starting to make changes to the way we communicate to you. You may recall that we have published several news articles explaining that School Pupil Tracker was closing and that we were using this as an opportunity to review all our information and communication systems in school, including Laser.
We are now ready to launch Bromcom. We have moved our internal information management systems across to Bromcom. We are using this system to store key information about your child in line with our data protection policy.
Going forward we will also be using Bromcom to communicate with you through its ‘My Child at School’ website and app, also known as ‘MCAS’. We will have a phased approach to moving all of our communication systems across to Bromcom.
In summary MCAS will provide:
- access to real-time Attendance, Assessment and Behavioural information;
- communication facilities to improve contact between you and us;
- instant access to published reports.
To start with we will be use MCAS to store and share your child’s assessment and behaviour (rewards and sanctions) information. You will have access to this information as it is completed by your child’s class teacher.
We will also be asking you to book your Spring Term parent consultation meetings through the MCAS app or website.
We will continue to use our Year Group Noticeboards on the website for information relevant to the whole year group.
We will continue to 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 Bromcom/MCAS for these bookings.
