Pastoral Care


We are very proud of the support we offer pupils at Notre Dame High School. We embrace the individuality of every young woman who comes into our care, our approach is holistic, nurturing and restorative. Catholic values are at the heart of everything we do and Pastoral Care staff work alongside parents to develop the academic potential of pupils, as well as looking after their social and emotional well being.

When your daughter joins Notre Dame High School, she becomes a member of a House Group, each Group is looked after by a member of our Pastoral Care team. The Principal Teacher of Pastoral Care is the named person responsible for overseeing your daughter’s school experience. Pastoral Care staff are the first line of contact if you have any concerns or queries regarding your daughter’s school life. Our team welcome communication with parents to ensure our young people are happy, safe and achieve their potential.
