We are constantly looking for ways to improve our communication with you and keep everyone up-to-date and well informed.

Seaton Valley Federation uses MyChildatSchool, which is an electronic school communication system from Bromcom.  MCAS enables you to receive all your information from school quickly and reliably.

We can send letters by email to your inbox and short messages directly to your mobile phone - and, if necessary, you can reply the same way too!  If you have an Apple or Android mobile phone this is via a free app. You can also make payments through the app or online, as well as top up and view lunch account balances.

By registering on MCAS, you can:

  • receive letters more reliably and promptly

  • see letters in your inbox like any other email

  • get a short text or app message if we need to contact you urgently

  • see your child’s timetable for the current week

  • stop relying on your child for delivery

  • reply by email or text

  • send us any reasons for absence via app, text or email

  • top-up your child’s lunch account quickly and easily, as well as monitor their spending

We can:

  • send more letters and information regarding your child/ren

  • save money on admin time, printing and paper

  • contact you urgently when necessary

The school will use the email address and mobile number that we hold for you in our database. If you change your contact details please let the school know as soon as possible.


If you had the MCAS app in use before 14th July 2023 then please delete it and download the updated version and follow the instruction below.

1. Search for “MyChildatSchool” in the Apple App Store/Google Play store.

2. Install the app.

3. When you launch MCAS for the first time, enter the email address we hold on record for you and if you do not know your existing MCAS password use the forgot password option.

You should now be logged in and able to see any information we have released about your child and as long as you have the same email address in use for all your children in the Federation they will now all appear in the app together.
