Important Notice from Headteacher

Head teacher Notre Dame Glasgow

Mrs Rosie Martin

As Headteacher, I would like you to be aware of the live consultation in relation to Notre Dame High School.

The local authority are currently seeking views from all interested parties on future entrance criteria for our school and I would encourage you to express your opinion on the following proposals;

Option 1 – No change. Notre Dame High remains girls only with two associated primary schools, St Ninian’s and Notre Dame Primary.

Option 2 – Notre Dame High remains girls only with an extended and altered catchment area to include Notre Dame, St. Patrick’s Primary, St. Joseph’s Primary and St. Charles’ Primary.

Option 3 – Notre Dame High changes to co-educational with a catchment area to include Notre Dame Primary, St Patrick’s Primary and St. Joseph’s Primary.

Below, you will find the link to both the full consultation paper and the associated survey:

Parental Involvement and Engagement Census (PIE) – Secondary Schools

Parents and carers are by far the most important influence on children’s lives.  Research shows that when parents are involved in their child’s learning, children do better at school and throughout their lives.  Glasgow City Council would like to get an idea of how you feel about your child’s school and to give you a chance to reflect on the partnerships you are experiencing.

Glasgow City Council – Consultation

Glasgow City Council’s consultation to decide future entry requirements for our High School is underway. You have until Friday 24 May 2019 to make your voice heard.

Please add comments or recommendations alongside the option you select:

1) Status quo – keep the school as it is with the same catchment area

2) Status quo and extended catchment – increase the number of associated schools – allowing more girls direct access to the school

3) Change the school to a co-education offer – allowing boys, potentially as early as 2020.

 

Notre Dame High School Parent Council’s preferred option is number 2, with the added comment that St Ninian’s Primary should stay within the revised catchment.

That position is based on the fact that over 95% of our parents and carers have already expressed their clear wish for our school to remain all-girls. In a questionnaire distributed last year, you also told us that you would agree with extending the catchment area to allow more girls to access its inclusive and inspiring educational benefits.

Make your voice heard here:

Minutes of the Glasgow City Parent’s Group

Please find the minutes for the Glasgow City Parent’s Group below:

Minutes of Glasgow Parents in Partnership Meeting held on 13.11.18

Among the items discussed at the meeting, item 4 is a uniform exchange programme. Please see details below:

Apparel Xchange

Apparel Xchange is a social enterprise which tries to kit children out in an affordable uniform by reusing and recycling uniforms. They receive used uniforms from schools lost property and from parents. They check, wash and sell these garments at a small cost. The enterprise is trying to make children aware of the supply chain, their massive duty to preserve the planet, learn how to wash their clothes, put labels on them and hopefully with this knowledge make better choices. The enterprise has a Pop-up shop in the southside of Glasgow. For your information, attached is a flyer about the forthcoming Pop-up shop sale days.

Apparel Xchange’s contact details are:
