Please click here to read a letter from the Headteacher regarding the change to the school day.

My Child at School (MCAS)

Please be aware that LDA has transferred to a new communications system. LDA are now using the ‘My Child at School’ App (MCAS) to communicate with parents/carers.

Over the summer holidays,  parents/carers should have received an email from ‘Bromcom/My Child at School(MCAS)’ asking that they register their account. The accounts have been set up using the email address parents/carers provided the school. Please follow the instructions in the email/link to register an account.

Parents/carers who have not yet received an email to register their account should contact the school requesting an account be set up:

NEW LDA Payment System:

Dear Parent/Carer,


From Monday 23rd January 2023 the way that parents and carers pay for school lunches, trips and additional items will change.  From this date, all payments will be made via the MCAS app instead of Parent Pay. Parent Pay will no longer exist at LDA from 23rd January. The school cannot set up your account or make any payments on your behalf.

Please ensure you set up your MCAS account before Monday 23rd January 2023. The only way to pay for your child’s lunches, trips and additional items will be via the MCAS app from this date.

If you have not yet activated your MCAS account or received an information email please email to request an invitation code as soon as possible.

Please see below key documents linked to MCAS:
