Another secondary school in Milton Keynes closes early and moves to remote learning due to spike in covid cases

    Shenley Brook End School in Milton Keynes has asked all pupils not to attend school, and to learn remotely for the final week of term.

    This is the second known school in the city that MKFM can confirm has shifted to online learning, with The Hazeley Academy also making the announcement over the weekend. 

    Shenley Brook End School emailed parents on Sunday (13/12) stating that all years will learn from home from today (14/12) until the end of the week due to a "further increase in positive cases" over the weekend.

    The email to parents adds: "This is in the interests of safety, pastoral care and quality of education over the next week and an important step in enhancing our provision at a time of great disruption due to the number staff needing to self-isolate."
