Information for New Year 7 September 2021
Year 6 Welcome message from the Principal
Dear Students and Families of our New Year 7
I am so pleased to be welcoming you at this time of optimism. With schools returning from the 8th March and the vaccine reaching more and more of our community, we can begin to cautiously plan for the future.
We are delighted that you have chosen to come to the Milton Keynes Academy. Rest assured that we have been working in partnership with your primary schools to ensure we know about you and your individual talents, skills and needs.
Although we have not been able to have our usual Open Evening, I hope you were able to join us online. We have another virtual event on Wednesday 17th March 2020 as a further Welcome Evening, when you will be able to get more information about your exciting start at MKA.
We cannot yet provide you with details of our plans for induction days or your start in September, we can tell you that we will make sure that you be introduced to the school, your teachers and our fantastic facilities through the website page dedicated to you, our Class of 2021. When you do come into school, you will receive special induction sessions so that you know how to keep safe as well as becoming accustomed to life at a secondary school.
At MKA, we pride ourselves on providing Opportunities for Everyone, and you will be no exception. One of the things that sets the Academy apart is that we are part of a wider family of schools, belonging as we do to the Creative Education Trust. Working alongside our wider family, we are able to provide you with a wealth of experiences and I hope that you come to us ready and willing to take on every opportunity that is offered.
Mr Copson, Head of Year 7, and his team will keep you informed of all you need to know by his weekly updates on the website, from details about uniform through to how the restaurant works. Watch out for competitions and challenges that you can take part in now!
We are so looking forward to welcoming you.
Message from your Head of Year, Mr Copson
Hello and welcome to your Academy, I know that it is a worrying time as you prepare for secondary school. My job is to make this process as smooth as possible. Please keep checking this website as it will be updated regularly on key information. If you have any questions, please do get in contact.
Throughout your time at The Milton Keynes Academy, you will take part in Knowledge Connected Days which will teach you about transferable knowledge and skills and develop your creativity. We would like you to think about the current situation in a creative way, we have launched a photography competition, our Isolation Brief.
Please click on the tab below for the competition details and the information on how to enter. You do not need to have a special camera, your mobile camera will be more than fine. The competition is now open and will end on the 1st September 2021, each week we will add entries to our virtual gallery on the website. Enter now and let everyone see just how talented you are!
From 16 August, children under of the age of 18 will no longer have to self-isolate if they are contacted by NHS Test & Trace as a close contact of a positive Covid-19 case. Instead, they will be advised to take a PCR test. Please report any confirmed Covid-19 positive test results to our dedicated Covid Alert email address below: email@example.com
On their return to school in September, all students will be given the opportunity to take two Lateral Flow Tests on school site. It is clearly in the interests of the school and its community that as many students as possible take up this opportunity to be tested on their return to school. As the students will be taking the new Orient Gene LFD test, we need to ask all families to provide consent for the testing, which can be done via the link below.
