Parent and Carer Information

Reporting a Student Absence

If an absence from College is unavoidable, a parent/carer must contact the student's Achievement Tutor before the student's first timetabled lesson of the day. This can be done by emailing the Achievement Tutor directly (this information has been sent to parents via text message) or emailing the Achievement Tutor group email achievementtutors@ndonline.ac.uk If you would prefer to call College please use 0113 2946644 and press extension 141.

Student timetables are available on our Cedar Parent Portal and we ask that any appointments are made outside of lesson times where at all possible. The term dates for College are available here. Students are not permitted to 'authorise' their own absence, evidence may need to be shown and Achievement Tutors will contact parents/carers if a pattern of unauthorised absence occurs.

As children get older and more independent, issues that affect them can be harder to spot and deal with. Learning about potential dangers can give you the knowledge and skills to act if there is a problem. It could also help keep your child safe by preventing problems before they happen. You know your child best, so if you’ve got a feeling something’s up – you’re right not to ignore it. You can access ParentWise below, which contains a range of advice and tips to support you:

1. Cedar Parent Portal

As part of our continuing commitment to improving student achievement, the College uses an online Parent Portal through our intranet system Cedar. This will enable you access to your child’s attendance and assessment data. The Parent Portal can be accessed securely through the College website.

To log on to the system you will need to use your email address that has been provided to the college and logged against your child’s record. The sign-up process is accessed at the link below by using the email address combined with your child’s student reference. https://cedar.notredamecoll.ac.uk/auth/account/create

Their student reference can be found next to the QR code on their College ID card and is labelled as “Stu Ref”.

3. Cedar Parent Portal FAQs

FAQs:

Where do I create my Parent Portal password?

You can create your account with the following link: https://cedar.notredamecoll.ac.uk/auth/account/create

What do I do if my email address is not registered with the college?

In the first instance, your child can select to “Update Contact Details” via their Cedar account. They should confirm all valid parental email addresses and submit. This could take up to 48 hours to link the new email address on Cedar. Alternatively, an email can be sent to the college providing contact details. Please phone the college reception who will advise what information needs to be included in the email to update records. Please be aware that it is not possible for the College to update the email address over the phone.

What do I do if I have lost my password?

If you have lost or forgotten your password, there is an option for “Forgotten Password” on the Cedar login page. You will need to confirm your email address, your child’s student reference, and their date of birth. Providing these details match, an email will be sent within 10 minutes to allow you to reset your password.

How many Parent Portal logins are available for my child?

Up to 2 separate parental email addresses can be recorded, and an account created again each one. If you have multiple children at the college, only one account is required, and that account will be able to access the records for all children.

Can I access Parent Portal from a tablet or smartphone?

The Parent Portal is accessed through the College website and can be viewed on all devices.

Who should I contact if I have a question about the data on Parent Portal?

If you have any questions regarding Parent Portal please contact the college on 0113 2946644, the office staff will then direct your question to the appropriate staff. Answers to these queries may not be possible over the phone due to staff commitments, however, a response will be made within a time period.

Coronavirus Risk Assessment

Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form College remains committed to providing high quality face-to-face education throughout the Coronavirus Pandemic. In response to the DfE we regularly review the arrangements we have in place to control the virus.

The fundamental controls that we have in place include: 

  • Encouraging good hygiene from everyone 
  • Maintaining appropriate cleaning regimes 
  • Keeping occupied spaces well ventilated 
  • Following Public Health advice on managing confirmed cases of Covid 19. 

 

Ideally any member of staff or pupil who tests positive for Covid should not attend the setting for 5 days from the day the symptoms started or from the date of test. However, government guidance now says they should try to stay at home or try to work from home and is less prescriptive.
