Support, advice and guidance for schools and educational settings during COVID-19

The work of Milton Keynes schools continues to be vital in battling the Coronavirus.

We know that the exceptional measures taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 present an unprecedented challenge for schools and the communities they serve. We also know the challenge is not over yet.

At the start of September pupils returned to educational settings across MK. We recognise that this was a difficult time for all stakeholders. However, we also know that schools, like us, were delighted to see pupils back where they belong.

From January 2021, schools were once again partially closed with only vulnerable pupils and the children of critical workers attending. This is set against the backdrop of another national lockdown and the spread of the new variant. The unprecedented times saw pupils across the country being educated remotely.

On 8 March 2021 pupils once again returned to schools and settings. This was part of the government’s phased approach to easing restrictions. Again, we know that schools are pleased to be able to educate pupils on site again.

During this exceptional time, we hope that this page continues to help you quickly access the information you need.

We remain hugely appreciative of the selfless dedication that you continue to show to the children and young people of Milton Keynes and their families. Thank you for all that you’ve done and all that you continue to do.
