As you’ll be aware, our academy now uses MCAS (MyChildAtSchool) as our preferred platform for parental communication. This page is designed to help you with any queries you may have.

For support with your MCAS account, please email, stating your child’s name, your name and contact number, along with the details below. 

1 – Setting up your account for the first time

You will be provided with our School ID (11794) and a username unique to you by email, 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 (11794), 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 (11794), 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.

Please remember to check Spam & Junk folders for emails if they don’t show up in your inbox.


3 – My children have disappeared from within the app

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 (11794), 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 (11794), your username and your password.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
