Nut Free Zone

We have pupils in school with nut allergies.
As a result Lawmuir PS is a nut free zone.
Please be vigilant about packed lunches, sweets etc and ensure that no nuts come on to the school campus

Please do not send your child into school with any nut-based product for a snack or packed lunch – this includes:

  • Nutella based products
  • Spreads, e.g. chocolate spread
  • Cereal bars
  • Some types of biscuit containing nuts
  • Condiments, e.g. satay sauce
  • Cakes containing nuts
  • Some snack pots containing nuts

It is important that you check the labelling of food products before sending your child in to school with them – it is not always apparent that products contain nuts or traces of nuts.

We also ask that, if your child consumes any nut-based product before school, they wash their hands thoroughly and rinse their mouth before entering the school grounds.

Thank you for your continued support.

Free Solihull Understanding Your Child Course

solihull newsletterWhat is the Solihull Approach Online?

The Solihull Approach Online courses available are for all parents and carers across Scotland. In addition, the ‘Understanding your brain’ course is specifically written for teenagers to access directly. The courses are available in several languages and with an audio narration.

The Solihull Approach was developed by Health Visitors, Child Psychologists and Child Psychotherapists in 1996. It is embedded in child development and psychological theory.  It focuses on developing nurturing and supportive relationships between children and their carer by promoting reflective, sensitive and effective parenting. It aims to improve the parent-child relationship as well as the child’s confidence, self-esteem and behaviour.

Digital Learning Support

As you are aware, in light of the First Minister’s announcement on the 5th of January we have moved to digital learning from the 11th of January until 1st of February for our children with the exception of key worker and vulnerable children.   To ensure that all children have access to learning and to their teacher, our teachers are working together to provide remote learning and to key worker and vulnerable children learning.

Microsoft Teams is our platform for remote learning and children from Monday can access learning via their new Teams tile.  When you access Teams look out for the new classroom tiles – you will find that two classrooms are now together on one tile, for example rooms 7 and 10’s remote learning can be found on the tile ‘Lawmuir Rm 7 & 10 (Lockdown 2021)’.

Please see below as to how the new tiles look:

To help ensure children are accessing remote learning we have created a digital support and help guide for parents and carers.  All information for remote learning can now be found in the one place.  Our guide will give you advice on a range of topics such as ‘how to login to Glow’, ‘password reset assistance’ and ‘games console access’.  Click on the tile you would further assitance with and you will taken to the relevant information.  This guide can also be found on our school app and website.
