Parent Enquiries

At Rowena Academy we use the MyChildAtSchool (MCAS) app as our first method of communication with parents through text messages and emails.

What is MCAS?

MyChildAtSchool (MCAS) is a portal that can enable parents to view their child’s academic performance in real-time via a web browser or mobile app. This facility allows exclusive access to key academic dates, attendance information and the personal details the academy holds for you and your child. The academy may use some or all of the following modules which are available in MCAS:

  • Notifications
  • Pupil details check
  • Attendance
  • Parent consents
  • Parents evening booking
  • Clubs and trips
  • Online payments
  • Reports
