The Spring term continues

It will not have escaped your attention that the incident in Hanworth Park on Thursday morning this week was yet another young victim of knife crime. Though not a student at Logic, the 19 year old was known to some staff in school and may be known by some students also. We have offered advice to Year 10 and 11 on this specifically today and are picking up with Year 12 and 13 on Monday. Our thoughts are with his family during this distressing time.

From the limited information we have this seems to have been a targeted attack and therefore we perceive the risk to our own student body to be unchanged. We advise those that would have walked through the Air Parks to continue to use alternative routes.

The biggest reminder I can give at this time is that we remain here as a pillar of support for both your child and yourselves. Our teaching and coaching staff are on hand at all times and our doors are always open. This is best exemplified by our first Coffee Morning that took place on Thursday of this week offering parents an informal way to engage with us as a school. Please look out for the next meeting on 7th January.

I am pleased to report that students in Year 11 and Year 13 continue to engage in the materials and sessions we have put on to support in the run up to mock exams next half term. Thank you for all the work you do as parents to support this.

Finally from me, you may have seen some of the DfEs new advertising around the importance of school attendance. Though I think that the medium is rather insulting, it is a message that I agree with. Year in, year out, attendance of 95% (just 6 days off a year) is what we aim for. Data consistently shows us that there is a clear link between attendance and attainment. Put simply, if you are not here, you cannot learn.

Thank you for your continued support.
