My Child At School

My Child At School (MCAS) is a new app for parents/carers which enables you to view your child’s school data, on your smartphone, or any internet enabled device, in real time. We are launching this to parents/carers of students in Years 7-10 during the Spring term 2020.

In summary, MCAS provides:

  • Access to real-time Timetable, Calendar and Attendance;
  • Paperless communication to improve contact with parents and carers;
  • Instant access to Published Reports and Letters;
  • School Announcements and Parent Evening information;
  • Exam timetables.

Contacting Us

We welcome parents and carers to contact us regarding anything that concerns them. The ways in which parents and carers can communicate with us are shown on our contact us page. We will endeavour to provide a response within 24 hours.

The King's School provides parents/carers with information to ensure that they stay up to date with their child’s progress at all times. Reports are compiled regularly for all students and we offer numerous opportunities for parents/carers to meet with staff throughout the year. Students are set aspirational targets at the beginning of Year 7, based on KS2 prior attainment. Assessments and attitudes to learning are reported three times a year; in winter, spring and summer. The final end-of-year assessment is based on what students have learnt from the start of the year.
