MCAS and Parents' Evening

MyChildAtSchool Parent Portal (MCAS)

Online Parental Engagement

MyChildAtSchool (MCAS) is an online portal for parents that enables you to view your child's performance at school in real-time via the internet. The facility allows you to access your child's homework, attendance, behaviour, achievement, and reports, whenever you wish. You no longer need to wait for reports to be sent out, you can check whenever you want for the latest available information about your child.

MCAS is easier than ever before to access - here is how:

Step 1: Go to www.mychildatschool.com to access the Parent Login screen.

Step 2: Click on the 'RESET PASSWORD' link

Step 3: Complete the EMAIL ADDRESS (one used by school) and tick/complete the 'I'M NOT A ROBOT' and then click on 'SEND RESET EMAIL'

Please note that your email address must match the one we hold on file, please contact school to change/update an email address. (office@medenschool.co.uk)

Step 4: You will receive an email like the one below to reset your password.

Click on the link to be taken to the MyChildAtSchool reset password screen where you will be asked to enter your password and then asked to confirm your new password.

You should now be able to login to MyChildAtSchool on both the web browser or the MCAS app.

Parents Evening

Booking your appointment using ParentsBooking

Whilst staff are always available to discuss any issus or concerns you may have , each year group has a designated Parents Evening, giving all parents / carers the opportunity to check on the progress of your child and gain a review.

We currently use an online app called ParentsBooking which allows us not only to book appointments but also to conduct video/voice calls to parents with minimal set up, should we need to.

Before each designated Parent's Evening, we will contact you inviting you to make an appointment with your child's teacher. It will be at this point we will be able to tell you with certainty whether the evening will be in person, on the school site, or via video link.

Please find a link to the website here PARENTSBOOKING.

Full instructions of how to access the app is available here
