MCAS - My child at school

We launched our new parent app, MCAS (My Child at School) in June 2023

MCAS allows you to report absences, view key information such as your child's timetable, club enrolment and topping up Dinner Money. You can also keep your details up to date on our records. We also use the app for most communication and alerts. 

Parents have received emails with details on how to activate your account. If you have not, please see the information below. 


Why use MCAS?

FAQ: What are the password requirements? 

Your password might not contain the requirements. Please check you have the below.

  1. be long (at least 8 characters);
  2. include:
    1. Uppercase letters
    2. lowercase letters
    3. Numbers
    4. Punctuation marks

Setting a Strong Password Advice

A strong password will

  1. be long (at least 8 characters);
  2. include a range of characters, such as:
    1. Uppercase and lowercase letters
    2. Numbers
    3. Punctuation marks
    4. Other symbols
  3. not contain dictionary words, where possible;
  4. not include simple substitutions of characters, e.g. "p4$$w0rd";
  5. not include patterns derived from the keyboard layout, e.g. "qwerty".

We advises all parents to use strong passwords to protect the confidential personal information contained within MCAS. Parents should also avoid using obvious choices of passwords, such as the name of your child or pet, as someone could find such information elsewhere.

Do Not Share Passwords and never disclose your password to another individual, whether this be a family member or other individual, for any reason. If you think that someone else knows your password, change it immediately. Henley Bank High School will never ask you for your MCAS password!
