Consultation on proposed changes to entrance criteria for Notre Dame High School
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:
I have arranged a number of dates where the consultation paper and survey link will be available in school for anyone who requires support or access to the online survey. These are;
Monday 25 March – 3.35 p.m.– 6 p.m.
