The philosophy and spirit of Notre-Dame Saint-Roch School is oriented towards a global education that includes knowledge and values. To achieve this, we want to offer a school that educates as well as teaches.
As parents, you are the first educators of your children: the responsibility for educational training lies partly with the school, but it can only complement what each child receives at home. Your active participation is essential to create a real harmony between family education and school education. Naturally, this creates a relationship of trust and dialogue between the educational team and you as parents.
Our project is to be a school that makes all its pupils succeed, without forgetting that there are diverse successes and diverse paths to fulfilment.
We take into account and scrupulously respect the official instructions and the programs established by the National Education, and within this framework our project is to :
"Our students are the future God has entrusted to us"
(Remarks of Monsignor Lustiger to the heads of schools in Paris at the dawn of the third millennium).

In cycle 2
IN cycle 3
In the in-depth cycle, our objective is for each student to communicate, read, write, create and become a citizen:
to make people want to read by offering a varied choice of books, by going to the library, by explaining the choice of book, by being a reader for the little ones
to encourage writing by creating a newspaper about cultural activities or outings and by using computers
encourage self-expression by participating in group debates, presenting and critiquing presentations, taking part in competitions or ‘outside’ events
reading a children’s newspaper
cultural outings: visits to museums, theatres, concerts, etc.
respect for others: at school, in the canteen, on transport
respect for collective material
respect of the given word
politeness: speaking and respecting others’ words
reading and debates on the Declaration of Human Rights and the Rights of the Child
- visits to the Town Hall, the National Assembly and the Senate
- transplanted classes
THE MEANS USED
In order to achieve these objectives and to succeed in the mission of giving your child a complete education in accordance with our values, we have set up a pedagogical organisation to respond to the diversity of the students.
Within each class, the teacher in charge proposes :
We are aware that it is important for you, as parents, to have a clear and regular overview of the progress of your children’s work. To this end, we have set up a personalised follow-up during the school year. This is structured as follows:
IN cycle 1
We start in the kindergarten section, where a personal follow-up is set up for your child.
Your child receives an evaluation booklet at the end of the year which shows what he/she has learned and what he/she still needs to learn or is learning.
IN cycles 2 et 3
The graded assessment is implemented, which allows your children to be assessed according to the objective of the common base of knowledge.
These graded assessments are included in the report cards which will be given to you every six weeks and before each school holiday.
The need for an alternative approach to measuring your child’s personal development is appreciated and assessed in the skills booklet given to families.
Our experience has shown us that if a child’s success is visible through his good grades and his motivation to go to school, it can only really be measured at the end of his physical, intellectual and spiritual development. Their capacity for adaptability and openness to the world will enable them to become the citizens of tomorrow with confidence.
In educating the young people entrusted to us in the Truth, Beauty, Goodness and Justice, it is the light of Jesus Christ that illuminates the character of our school.
This is the project that we want to live in our school.
