As a parent/carer of a child who attends Sandringham School, you have access to a number of digital platforms, which provide you with information about your child’s progress at school. This includes access to your child’s timetable, attendance, behaviour, homework and more.
Each of the platforms we use has its own specific purpose in helping you as parents/carers keep up to date with how your child is getting on at school. More detailed information about each individual platform can be found on this page. There are also useful guides which are freely downloadable to support you.
Bromcom MyChildAtSchool (MCAS)
We encourage parents to make use of our My Child At School online system where parents can review key data about their child’s education at any time of the year. This will contain the most recent data on attendance and rewards/consequences as well as a copy of all reports that we have produced on your child. For students in Key Stage 4 and 5, exam timetables for trial and public exams are available well in advance of the exam seasons. We are working with the systems vendor to increase the amount of data available via the system in future and it is a key part of our communication with parents.
What is MCAS?
My Child At School is a website and app for parents that is linked to our data management system in school. It provides:
- access to real-time Attendance, Assessment and Behavioural information
- communication facilities
- trial and public exam timetables
