COVID-19

Please keep checking this page for the latest information from us on COVID-19 and its impact on schools.

Sixth Form Tuition Fund allocation

Following the disruption to schools last year, we had more than 90 students taking at least 1 retake subject across Years 12 and 13.  The 14-19 tuition fund has enabled us to increase capacity in our sixth form team and work with small groups of students to support them in English and maths, alongside more regular academic coaching.  We have prioritised students who have not achieved a grade 4 in one or both core subjects and subsequently had a good pass rate in November.

Consent

In order to carry out Lateral Flow Testing we require your consent. Depending on your age this consent will need to be given by the parent/ carer or child.

Examinations

Monday’s address to the nation by the Prime Minister has, once again, taken us by surprise. As ever, we remain committed to serving our community and have been quickly working to make sense of recent announcements. Particularly we wanted to address the information that has been given around this summer’s exam season as we would caution against jumping to conclusions at this point. 

“We recognise that this will mean it is not possible or fair for all exams to go ahead this summer as normal. The Education Secretary will work with Ofqual to put in place alternative arrangements.”

We would emphasise the use of the word ‘normal’, there has been no mention of cancellation, as much as we know at this point  ‘alternative arrangements’ will be put in place. Whilst we do not have a clear idea of what this will look like, it is safe to assume that students will need to be assessed on the full content of each course of study. 

It is now being reported that exams will be taken in core subjects such as Maths and English.

This means it is vital that your child continues to engage with our remote education plan throughout this lockdown period.

A number of examinations planned for January will still take place and we are making arrangements to ensure that this happens in the safest way possible. All students that are due to sit exams during lockdown will be contacted individually and will be tested for COVID-19 prior to the exam.

Thursday 31st December

As you may be aware the Government updated its guidance for returning to school yesterday and we wanted to share our initial plans with you so you have clarity as you head into the new year. We do hope you have had a restful Christmas break and we want to reassure you that we will be putting the safety of the Logic community first in everything we do. We also remain totally committed to provide an excellent quality of education for all our students at this important time.  Please see below for information regarding your child(s) year group.
