Through this short survey Scottish Government would like you to help them find out what matters to parents about their school and their child’s education, focusing on what needs to be done to make the improvements we all want to see. The survey will close on October 16th and will inform the annual report for the National Improvement Framework parental involvement driver.
Tickets are £10 per adult and £5 per child (including infants). For further info contact Lynn Condy, Jennifer Green or Alison McKenzie.
For tickets please complete letter/slip which was sent home week beginning Monday 11th September.

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.
Here are our House Captains for 2017-2018 (as voted for by the pupils of Uplawmoor).
The pupils have settled into their new classes and are busy starting their new programmes of work.
We have a number of items of uniform availalble to buy through our School Uniform Shop using parent pay, Click here to check availability and to buy.
Please note that items purchased can be collected from the school on Monday 14th and Tuesday 15th August.
The children worked in their houses to gain lots of points towards winning the prestigious House cup (to be revealed on Tuesday). The rain stayed off and the staff, pupils, friends and families had a great time spectating and taking part in a variety of sporting activities. Well done to the winning house on the day – Libo!
Please see attached details regarding Eastwood High School’s uniform policy. It has been decided that the wearing of full school uniform is now compulsory. Please see letter attached from Head Teacher, Mr S Maxwell and details of discounts available until 25th June.
Sports Day is rescheduled to Wednesday 21st June to allow the field to dry as there are a few dry days forecast.
Our Celebration of Achievements will take place at the Church at midday on Tuesday 28th June. The celebration will finish at 1pm and children should be picked up from the church as the school will be closed. No lunches are available that day so remember to supply your child with a snack for playtime.
We look forward to hopefully seeing you at these events!
Uplawmoor Primary School and our Gardening Committee would like to say thank you to Mundell Landscapes for donating compost to our school garden. Thanks to you we have been able to plant some delicious vegetables! Click on the link below to see our thank you letter from the gardening committee. Mundells Garden Committee Thanks 14Jun17
If there are any parents who would like to start a ‘watering rota’ to look after the beds in the playground we would be extremely grateful. It would be such a shame to come back in August if all of our hard work was ruined.

There were lots of entrants from Uplawmoor Primary School for the 1k at the gala and we look forward to seeing their medals and trophies at assembly. A special WELL DONE goes to the 3k runners. There were only 2 school entrants for the 3k distance. Christopher Rae returned in 3rd place for the boys with a time of 12.58 And most especially Alex goldie who was our youngest entrant, she ran a determined race despite being up against girls much older than her – some in high school! Both runners were a credit to themselves and the school and we are very proud of them both. Well done Alex and Christopher!
