Parentpay is our secure online income collection and management service which allows parents to make payments to the school using a debit / credit card. Payments in cash can also be made using the Parentpay top-up card (also known as Paypoint card) at local shops displaying the Paypoint logo. Paypoint cards should be used to pay for school lunches only. Parents are advised to always keep receipts of payments made at local shops safe and secure.

Parents' Association

“PTAs are the lifeblood of any good school” – Sir Michael Wilshaw

The Mossbourne Community Academy Parents’ Association – MCAPA is a committee of parents who meet once a month and volunteer at specific events. Working in partnership with the Academy, we create and support opportunities to involve parents, carers and pupils in building a stronger school community.

Every year we:

  • Raise funds through events like the Summer and Winter Fairs
  • Produce and sell the Mossbourne Academic Calendar to showcase student artwork
  • Fund a bursary to support the Music Scholars’ Programme
  • Raise funds for equipment and school trips
  • Sell second-hand uniforms
  • Organise social events for parents

To find out more or get involved:

  • Come along to a meeting on the second Wednesday of the month (term time only) – see calendar or check this site for details
  • Attend an event
  • Email us at parentsassociation@mca.mossbourne.org

Uniform

 It is expected that all students will travel to and from the Academy every day in neat, clean uniform as specified in the Uniform Policy, giving the clear message that our students take pride in belonging to the Academy. Anyone who fails to do so will receive a sanction.
