Welcome to Ossett Academy!
As a parent/carer of a new starter, you’ll no doubt be keen to get started, with access to our parental communication system and online payment system, so read on to find out how / what to expect.
We use MCAS by Bromcom (available as an app for mobile devices, or as a website) as our preferred platform for academy / parent communication.
As a new parent/carer, you will be provided with our School ID (11790) and a username unique to you by email, and an 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.
If you need an account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Tucasi Online Payments
To manage your payments for meals, trips and other items, we use the Tucasi Online Payment system. This system allows you to view balances and pay for items online without the need for cash or cheques, which we no longer accept.
As a new parent/carer, you will receive a letter from the academy containing your Online Link Code. This code will enable you to set up your account at www.scopay.com/school. Register as a New User and follow the instructions on the screen. If you need assistance creating your account, take a look at the help guides below.
All Ossett Academy pupils have a Microsoft Office license which can be installed at home for free. In order to do so, pupils can click here and log in with their academy email address.
Every pupil is issued a user account during their first week at school. If you need any technical support and guidance, our Tech Support team will be happy to help where they can at: email@example.com.
Through Microsoft Office, pupils can access Microsoft Teams and Microsoft SharePoint.
As may be your own experience, Microsoft Teams has been invaluable throughout the pandemic as a way of meeting (and even teaching!), virtually, whilst Microsoft SharePoint has become an ‘intranet’ whereby pupils are kept abreast of academy news.

In acknowledgement of government guidance, we have taken the decision to rationalise our uniform suppliers based on cost comparisons and can confirm our preferred supplier to be The Box in Ossett. The Box stock academy approved blazers, PE tops and skirts. All other items of uniform can either be purchased from The Box or alternative high street retailers.
