Year 13 Parent communication
Dear Parent / Carer
Further to the letter we sent out on New Year’s Eve, we hope you and your families remain well at this challenging time. Monday’s address to the nation by the Prime Minister has once again taken us by surprise but, 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 month’s exams and the summer exam season and we would caution against jumping to any conclusions at this point.
Following the announcement from Gavin Williamson this afternoon, we have made the decision to withdraw students from January BTEC exams and we are confident that your child’s education and BTEC outcomes will not be negatively impacted. The number 1 priority for you all now is to stay at home and stay safe.
We now know that we will be submitting Centre Assessed Grades for GCSE and A Level qualifications. We will be in touch again very soon with details of how we will gather evidence to ensure these grades are a fair reflection of your child’s work in all their qualifications. BTEC coursework will also need to be completed and lessons will continue as normal for this. This means it is vital that your child continues to engage with our remote education plan throughout this lockdown period.
At the heart of everything we do at Logic is ensuring our young people are prepared for their next steps, be it university, apprenticeships or employment. Whilst we face some really challenging times ahead, this will remain our core purpose. Mr Coles and his team will continue to support students with their UCAS applications (deadline 15th January!) and we will be running sessions on student finance, CV writing, apprenticeships and many more. Please ensure your child checks their emails and the sixth form bulletins to check for opportunities.
What you can expect from us:
- You will receive a phone call from us at least every fortnight to check how you are and how your child is doing with their online learning.
- Your young person’s Prep Tutor or personal coach will also be in touch with them regularly.
- Subject teachers will deliver online lessons in line with your child’s normal timetable.
- We are here to support you. Your first point of contact is your child’s Prep Tutor. Contact details can be found below.
- Parents of students entitled to Free School Meals will receive an email with an allocated voucher which can be used at a number of local supermarkets.
What do we need you to do?
- If your child does not have access to a laptop, please email email@example.com as soon as possible.
- Encourage your child to check and keep on top their emails every day so they don’t miss important information.
- Check your child’s timetable so you can help ensure they are online at the right times.
- Watch these videos if you would like to see how your child can access their Google Classrooms and live lessons On a phone or On a laptop.
Thank you in advance for your continued support and please do get in touch if you have any questions.
