How Parents can access and add Accounts on the MCAS App

Parents can use this guide to set up the MCAS App. This guide details the following 5 processes;

  • Parent receives Account information received from School
  • Parent downloads the MyChildAtSchool App for the first time.
  • Parent Redeems their Invitation Code.
  • Parent Creates and confirms Account Information.
  • Parent adds an Account if they have more than one username (Used if children at different Schools with MCAS),

Receive Account Information from School

Note: When a MyChildAtSchool User Account is created for a Parent by the School, the Parent will receive notification from the school with the following 3 pieces of information;

  • School ID
  • Username – be aware this may be different to the username the parent has for a school portal
  • Invitation Code

Below is an example of an email sent to a Parent (Note the email format may be different from this example);

Example email

If a Parent is unsure of the School ID, you can resend the Invitation Code email to them via Modules>MCAS>User Accounts or you can tell them directly.

The School ID can be retrieved when you log in to the MIS and click on the school name as shown below in the top left of Bromcom
