A day in Primary 2!

Recently, Primary 2 and Miss McAdam starred in their very own short film to showcase what a typical day in Primary 2 is like. You can watch this by following the link below and we are sure you’ll love it as much as we do.


Please note: The video is on a private Vimeo channel and should not be shared through personal social media accounts etc.

National Parent Forum



The National Parent Forum of Scotland has been working with Skills Development Scotland as part of the programme of work underway in Developing the Young Workforce. We are pleased to have produced some tailored information for parents, as part of our successful “in a nutshell” series, which covers the new Careers Education Standard launched at SLF 2015. This new nutshell will supply parents with basic information about the initial role of this programme in schools and signpost them to where they can get some more information if they need it. This nutshell has been produced in hard copy with one for each child in primary, secondary and ASN schools and deliveries will start w/c 11-1-16. We would also hope that it could be used at parent events, subject choice evenings etc. The link to the nutshell on the NPFS website is  http://www.npfs.org.uk/career-education-a-world-of-possibilities/

Recognising Achievements

Many thanks to everyone who has already contributed to our recognising achievement space. You can enter as many achievements per child as you wish! We will then share these achievements at assemblies.

Gaining recognition for the wide range of achievements can increase pupil confidence, raise their aspirations, improve motivation for learning and keep them engaged in education.  It is important that we recognise and celebrate achievements in all contexts for learning, through:

  • the ethos and life of the school as a community
  • curriculum areas and subjects
  • interdisciplinary learning
  • opportunities for personal achievement.

To help us gather this information on pupils’ personal achievements, I would ask you to follow the link below and provide the information required:


 This link will remain live throughout session 2015-2016.  You can add achievements as often as required by entering your child’s name, class and details of their achievement.

Adverse Weather Arrangements

In the event of adverse weather conditions we have clear procedures in place to ensure safety and continuity for our children. Please take time to familiarise yourself with both information specific to St Thomas’ and also information about East Renfrewshire.
