Scottish Government Parenting Plan Information

We would like to make our parents and families aware of a new resource designed to provide guidance for families going through separation or divorce – ‘Your Parenting Plan’.

First published in 2006, as the Parenting Agreement for Scotland, the Plan has been refreshed by the Scottish Government in conjunction with a number of key agencies, and will be promoted over the coming weeks to help as many families as possible access practical advice.

For further information or to request a copy of the Parenting Plan, click here:

If there is anything we can do to help, do not hesitate to contact us at the school and we can point you in the right direction.


Office 356 ProPlus

Office 365 ProPlus

All Glow users, can get copies of Microsoft Office 2016 to use on their home devices – PC, Mac, phones and tablets.

This will enable the use of a range of Microsoft products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, OneNote etc) on up to 15 home devices without cost (the 15 licences being split as 5 for PCs and/or Macs, 5 for tablets and 5 for phones).

To do this, login to Glow using your pupil’ s login.  (All children have been issued with a Username and Password.  If, however, your child cannot remember their details, please contact the school office and we will pass them on again to the pupil).

From the launch pad click the Office 365 Home tile (see image) then the “Install Office apps” button and follow the instructions.

Note that if downloading to an iPad or iPhone the process is different, the apps should be downloaded from the App Store and then log in using the Glow username. There is more information from Microsoft available here.

When logging in, you will be asked to enter your user name and this is your Glow user name plus the domain e.g., once you do this, you will be transferred to the usual Glow login screen, when you enter your details here your registration is complete.

The Glow username will only activate the software for as long as that account is active in Glow.

It is also possible to download the apps from within Microsoft O365 – within O365, click on the Office 365 link in the top left of your screen and from the O365 home page, click on “Install Office 2016”.

The Bodycoach Live School HIIT

We will be doing the Live Primary school HIIT each day this week with the Bodycoach so remember your PE kits each day!

Monday’s HIIT was a great success and a huge well done to our Primary 1s who worked particularly hard during their first HIIT!  The Primary 4/5 are using their maths skills to work out their ‘resting heart-rate’ and Primary 6/7 calculated their ‘fat burning  rate’ to work out how many times their heart beats to be in the range for gaining fitness and strength.

Welcome Back!

We are looking forward to welcoming all of our wonderful pupils back to school tomorrow.  Primary 1 parents are welcome to accompany their child into class.  (Informal entry is 8.55am).

Early to bed tonight everyone!

Final Message

We are looking forward to our Celebration of Achievements at the church today at 12-1pm.  On behalf of Mrs McKay and all the staff at Uplawmoor, we wish the pupils and families a wonderful summer!




We will see you all on Wednesday 16th August at 9am!
