My Child At School


Download our FREE School App

At Alderman White School we use the ‘My Child At School’ (MCAS) online platform. 

MCAS provides a free online portal and app that enables parents to view key information about their children and the school; to pay for clubs, trips, meals and products; and to easily contact the school with queries or to report absence.

To access MCAS you will need to have a registered account. The school will set up a MCAS account for all parental contacts when they provide a valid email address.

All parents should receive an email with login details (our School ID:12037, your unique Username, and an Invitation Code) when their child joins the school.
Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you haven't received your invitation code or need additional support.


Download the MCAS App

The best way to access the portal is via the My Child At School Parent App, available to download on iOS and Android devices. Search for MyChildAtSchool in your app store or use the links below, and look for the red icon as shown. The School ID for Alderman White is 12037.  

Please ensure you allow permission for the app to receive push notifications, and ensure the app is allowed to run in the background without being closed by any battery saving settings, so you don't miss our notifications.
