Last night we welcomed parents and S1 pupils to our school to begin the process of digitising learning and teaching through the use of iPads. Thank you to all who came along. A reminder that there are two further evenings for parents and pupils in S2 on Monday 11th March and S3 on Thursday 14th March beginning at 6.30pm.
Please feel free to attend an evening that suits you best to sign our parental agreement.
Respect is at the heart of all healthy relationships. Our S1 pupils have joined us from over 50 Glasgow Primary Schools and beyond. We value all our young people and want them to feel part of our community. Making new friends and maintaining existing friendships is a huge part of school life. We have a programme of support to help young people to develop key social skills that will enable them to enjoy healthy and long lasting friendships. Over the last month, our S1 pupils have benefited from a number of Health and Wellbeing sessions highlighting the difference between positive and negative behaviour within relationships and strategies on how to cope with bullying behaviour. Takeaway Theatre Company and Police Scotland delivered interactive workshops and presentations which also included valuable online safety and cyberbullying education. Mrs Henderson, DHT Pupil Support introduced Anti-bullying Week to S1 and S2 with assembly workshops called ‘Respect Means’, pupils had their photos taken as part of a national conversation about what respect means to young people. Our Pastoral Care Team will deliver follow up PSSE lessons called ‘Responding to Bullying’ and feedback from pupils will be analysed and shared with staff, parents and pupils. Please look out for this on the website in the coming weeks.

The National Parent Forum for Scotland are encouraging all parents/carers to complete an important survey. They have asked that schools share the following message.
This questionnaire will help us find out what matters to parents about their school and their child’s education, focusing on what needs to done to make the improvements we all want to see. The Education (Scotland) Act 2016 places a duty on the Scottish Government to review the National Improvement Framework each year, providing parents with the opportunity to express their views and have regard to any such views.
As we end the summer term we wish all our school community a joyous and relaxing summer break. Here’s a link to our Summer newsletter packed with lots of articles on everything that’s been happening at Notre Dame recently.
