Important Information for Parents/Carers

Statement from our Official Uniform Supplier- Price and Buckland

Orders are taking much longer to process than normal, so please bear with us.

There are some delays for delivery of certain garments due to the COVID 19 pandemic having affected our supply chain.

If your order is affected, you will receive an email to advise of the ETA for your order and P&B will share this information with MKA.  The school has asked that we advise parents who have ordered, not to be concerned about sending their child to school at the start of term without fully correct uniform.

We continue to be sending deliveries to home addresses only.

All the team at Price & Buckland thank you for your support and patience during this difficult time.

Welcome to the Academy!

Reducing Anxiety

Our colleagues at MK Specialist CAMHS have developed a resource pack to help parents and carers to reduce childhood anxiety during the COVID-19 outbreak. The resources can be found below:

Our tutors are working hard to maintain weekly e-mail contact with all students. Please encourage your child/ren to respond to their form tutors via e-mail so we can continue to support them as much as possible during the lockdown.

Support for Families

At this difficult time, it is good to know that there are organisations, groups and charities who are working in Milton Keynes and on-line to help you and your family.  Please click on the link below


We are adding to this list all the time, so if you are aware of a group you feel should be added, please e-mail info@miltonkeynesacademy.org.uk  with the organisation’s name, their purpose, contact details and times people are able to access.

Learning at Home

Parents click here for some remote learning guidance.

Studying at home guidance for students

When you are working from home, we want to ensure that you are able to continue to make progress in all of your subjects. This guidance will set realistic expectations for what Remote Learning looks like.

How will it work?

  • The expectation is that you will follow your normal timetable as closely as possible
  • For each lesson follow the guided resources on this document
  • You should spend the length of the lesson completing this work
  • If you do not understand an element of the work, or need help, you should be proactive in seeking help from all available sources. This includes using your notes and textbooks, contacting your class teacher, and utilising other resources
  • If you are still unsure or require help, contact the relevant teacher through email
  • Your teachers will respond no more than 24 hours after the timetabled lesson where possible
  • Responses may take the form of individual, or whole class guidance
  • Your teachers will inform you if work should be shared with them, and how you should do this
  • Your teachers may use a variety of methods to give you feedback on your work

How to be an excellent virtual learner

  • Keep your routine as close as possible to the normal school day.
  • Ensure you are working in an appropriate working environment, at a desk, and without distractions.
  • Put your phone away when you work.
  • You have a responsibility to be independent and proactive. Please contact the Academy if you experience any technical difficulties in accessing your work.
