Sustrans Hands Up Survey Results

Between 7th – 11th September, our Junior Road Safety Officers carried out the Sustrans Hands Up Survey by visiting all classes in the school.

As you can see from the chart below lots of the boys & girls at Lawmuir are travelling to school in a healthy way.

The most popular method of transport by a long way is by walking to school. Well Done everyone! Keep it up!

Transition Dates for New Primary 1 Pupils

We are looking forward to welcoming all our new Primary 1 pupils this week for the last of our planned transition events.  These events are for all pupils beginning in Primary 1.

Induction Afternoon

Our Primary 1 Induction Afternoon will take place on Wednesday 10th June at 1.45pm – 2.45pm. Please bring your child to the infant entrance of the school. On arrival children will be met by a member of school staff and directed to the correct classroom for the afternoon.

During the visit the children will have the opportunity to meet their class teacher and experience some of the activities, which will take place in Primary 1.

Parents/carers will have the opportunity to learn more about the school, which will provide information about your child’s first year.


School Lunch Visit

Pupils are invited to come along for a school lunch on Thursday 11th June at 11am.  Due to capacity in the dinner hall we can only accommodate one adult to accompany each child. Pupils and adults will be able to sample our school lunch menu free of charge and see the variety of foods on offer.

Please telephone the school on the above number to confirm you attendance at both induction events no later than Tuesday 9th June.

We look forward to seeing you then.
