Our Trust of Schools

Communication between Home & School including learning apps

At Exwick Heights Primary School, we recognise the importance of communication in building a strong and respectful partnership with you, as parents/ carers, in helping your child to thrive. As such, we have numerous channels of communication which we hope you will find to be informative, timely and accessible.


Your child’s teacher will be your main point of contact day-to-day. At the beginning and end of day, they are available for the exchange of brief messages at the classroom door; if more time is required, then a meeting (or phone call) can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.

Parent-teacher consultations are also held in the Autumn and Spring terms; in the Summer term, a written summative report will be provided at the end.

 ‘MyChildAtSchool’ (MCAS)

School newsletters, emails and text messages are sent using ‘MyChildAtSchool’ (MCAS), which is an electronic communication system between school and home. As a cashless school, bookings and payments (including school lunches, trips and all ‘school led’ after school sport and activity clubs) should also be made using this system.

Once your child has started at the school, you will receive an email from This email will include your invitation to sign up to MCAS. You will need to download the app and follow the instructions to finish setting up your account. Please contact the school if you need help with this.


You can find us on Facebook, where we share photos and information about current and future activities happening in our school.


In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), we use an online learning journal called Tapestry, that builds a special record of a child’s experiences, development and learning journey throughout their early years. It provides a platform for us to record observations of the children, where we can attach photos, videos and diary entries, which we can use to track children’s development and progress.


ClassDojo is used across the school from Reception to Year 6 as part of our positive behaviour management policy. Dojo points are given by all staff to reward positive attitude, effort and commitment to learning as well as academic excellence. Parents are able to view their child’s Dojos and can celebrate their child’s efforts and achievements with them at home.

At Exwick Heights we use an IT system called Wonde which allows us to put our digital learning resources all in one place which can be accessed with a single login.

The Wonde dashboard allows our children to access software that we regularly use to support their learning here at school, programmes such as Times Table Rockstars, Espresso and a variety of Google Apps (Classroom, Drive, Docs).

When children access a laptop, they are able to login using their personal login (a password of six emojis). If your child has lost their password, or is new to our school, please email your class teacher (via to receive your password for Wonde.
