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 are launching two public consultations
- to amend secondary school entry criteria and
- placing request criteria for mainstream schools.
a) Secondary School Entry Criteria
The purpose of this consultation is to align the entry criteria across all 30 Glasgow city council mainstream secondary schools by making all 30 delineated secondary schools, i.e. the single entry criterion for all secondary schools being a defined geographical catchment area.
b) Placing Request Criteria for Mainstream Schools
The purpose of this consultation is to review and improve the placing request criteria for mainstream schools (primary and secondary).
Both consultations will run until 24 September 2018 with six public meetings arranged.
Further information on the proposals is set out in the statutory documents in relation to these consultations, which are available on the Glasgow City Council website at www.glasgow.gov.uk/schoolconsultations
This year Notre Dame will be hosting a Christmas Fayre before our annual Christmas Concert on Thursday 7th December. The stalls will include, home baking, face painting, tombola, pizza counter, hot chocolate, mulled wine, mince pies and much, much more!
The fayre will run between 5pm and 7pm; just in time for you to continue the festivities with our Christmas Concert. Tickets for the fayre and concert will be on sale next week in school.
If you are a local businessperson and would like to have a stall at the fayre please contact the school on 0141 582 0190.
Please do not stop your vehicle in the middle of the road when dropping your daughter off in the morning or picking her up in the afternoon. There are a number of parking bays free in the local area where cars can be parked for a few minutes and pupils can enter/exit vehicles safely. As it stands, pupils are endangering their safety by entering and leaving cars in the middle of the road and significant delays are caused by stationary vehicles blocking the road entirely. Road safety is an important aspect of pupil safety and we would encourage all parents/carers to witness to responsible driving. Given the persistence of this issue, we have asked that the local traffic police have a presence in the area. Safety of pupils, staff, parents and local residents is of paramount importance and we appreciate your assistance in relation to this matter.
Arranging a safe pick up and drop off point a short distance from the school and away from the one way system is encouraged.
