This section of our site contains information on how we communicate with parents and carers. We will also post updates passed to us from our Parent Council.
To contact our Parent Council, please use the form shown below.
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.

Are you a former pupil of Notre Dame High School?
The Parent Council urge you to respond to the survey on the future entry requirements for our school.

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.

Notre Dame High is positively contributing to raising attainment levels. It is offering educational choice for our families alongside combatting poverty in Glasgow.

As we come to the end of Children’s Mental Health Week, raising self-esteem is such an important part of a young persons’ life. We hope this article is useful for any advice in boosting self-esteem.
To aid in the important decision of S2 Options, we have produced a booklet that details what subjects are on offer, where the subjects lead later in life and career prospects for the future workforce.
We hope you find this helpful. Please note: The document may take a few seconds to download.
