COVID-19 Support and Information


Milldown CE Academy is now closed and will now only provide childcare to the children of critical key workers when no other option is available.


Education Secretary Gavin Williamson made this message clear:

You should only send your child to school if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response.

If you are able to keep your child at home, you should.



If you are able to use family, friends or a non key-worker parent to care for your child, this should be prioritised. Employers should be flexible and understanding in supporting with this, especially if there is a need and possibility to work from home. 

The less children and staff we have in school, the more we are helping to prevent the spread of this virus.


We thank you for your understanding and support.

Process for booking for critical key workers when no other option is available


Should you need to use the school to provde childcare as a final option you will need to inform us of your childcare request via School Money.
