MCAS (MyChildAtSchool) App and Website

If you have not yet been issued an MCAS account, please contact mcas@ossett.accordmat.org remembering to state your child’s name, and your mobile telephone number, then follow the details below.

Secondary Schools within the Accord Multi Academy Trust now use MCAS (MyChildAtSchool) as their preferred platform for Academy / Parent Communication from Sept 2019 onwards.

 

1 – Setting Up Your Account for the First Time

You will be provided with our School ID (11790) and a username unique to you by email or letter, and a One-Time-Use Invitation Code, also unique to you as an individual, by text message. Once you’ve been provided with these, you can head to either the MCAS App or the MCAS Website

Click the Redeem Invitation Code” link.

Enter the School ID (11790), your Username, and your Invitation code.

You will then be prompted to:

  • create a password
  • provide your email address, and
  • set a security question/answer.

Once complete, you can then use the School ID, your Username, and the password you have just created to log in to both the MCAS App and the MCAS Website via the main log in page.

 

2 – I’ve forgotten my Username or Password

Users can self-reset their password by following the Forgotten Login Details link on the MCAS Website, and then selecting “I need to reset my password”.

You will be asked for:

  • the school ID (11790), and
  • the email address with which you registered the account in step 1 above
  • the answer to your security question from step 1 above

A link will then be emailed to you which can be used to reset your password.

If you need to recover your Username, please use the “I need to Recover my Account Details” link instead of the the “I need to reset my password” link.

 

3 – My Children have disappeared from within the App

An update during November 2019 caused this issue. Please delete the app from your device, then reinstall the latest version from the AppStore / PlayStore. Once installed, re-add your account using the SchoolID (11790), your username, and your password. In the meantime, you can always log in to the MCAS Website where all your children should be listed correctly and make any changes there, as this particular issue only affected the App for Mobile Devices.

 

4 – Switching between your children

To switch between your children, open the menu in the app. The current child whose details you are viewing should be pictured at the top with their name listed alongside. Tap on their name. A pop-up window will then appear listing any other children linked to your account. Tap the child whose details you wish to view to switch to them.

 

5 – I forgot my PIN number

The MCAS App asks you to set a PIN to prevent any one who may gain access to your phone from launching the app. This PIN is set and stored only on your phone. Should you forget this PIN number, the only solution is to delete the app from your device, reinstall the app from the AppStore / PlayStore, and then re-add your account using the School ID (11790), your username and your password.

 

6 – Online Payments

Online payments are not handled by the MCAS app/website. For online payments we use Tucasi’s SCOPay, and a separate set of login details is required for this. Please contact the Academy’s finance office via email to finance@ossett.accordmat.org and they will be able to issue you with a SCOPay account for online payments.
