Active Schools Block 2

Soccer Sevens

Today Bishopton Primary took two teams to Ferguslie as part of the Soccer Sevens qualifiers.

Team Blue competed in the P7 event and narrowly missed out on the play offs after some hard fought games.

Team Red competed in the P6 event and made the play-offs but sadly just missed out at the final hurdle against All Saints Primary.

Thank you to all of the spectators who came to cheer us on and to Bargarran Primary who we once again travelled with (and drew 0-0 with again!!!)

STEM Week Skype Assembly

Today we had the FIRST EVER Bishopton Primary School Skype Assembly. Pupils from each class came up to the gymhall and told us a little bit about what they have been up to throughout the week. This was played back live to each of the classrooms.

It was a fantastic experience and something we hope to do again in the future.

Well done for all your hard work during STEM Week. We definitely have future STEM practitioners in our ranks!

STEM Week 2018

STEM Week 2018 kicked off with the world of work visiting Bishopton Primary School.
We were joined by Ally, Alex Joannides, Lucy Joannides, Suzanne Lee, Jennifer Jensen, Iain McDade, Matthew Cochrane, Colin, Martin Banks, Eleanor Rathod and Etienne Rathod.


Their expertise taught us all about the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and they provided fantastic role models for our pupils. They were even able to answer some of our very tricky questions.

It certainly made us think about future careers in some jobs that may not even exist yet!
Keep an eye on the class blogs to see some pictures of today’s events and what we get up to throughout the rest of the week.

A massive thank you to all the companies and businesses who helped this afternoon to take place.

Calling all STEM Practitioners!

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths!

We are currently planning Bishopton Primary STEM week for the week beginning 1st October 2018.  We are planning a variety of different classroom challenges and would love to hear from STEM practitioners.

If you could come in and tell us a little bit about your job and training or give us a hand with some of the challenges we would love for you to visit us.

Please get in touch with the school office or write a note in your child’s diary and I will get in touch.

Kind Regards,

The Scottish Engineering Leaders Award Public Exhibition

A massive congratulations to Ellie and Zak from P7 who have had their engineering solutions chosen to be displayed at the Barony Hall in Glasgow.

The pupils were asked to research engineering and interview a practicing engineer to inspire them in answering the question:

“If you were an Engineer, what would you do?”

They have been shortlisted after over 15 000 entries this year!

If you would like to attend the event on Friday 8th or Saturday  9th June, please click on the link below. I can’t wait to have a look at all their hard work on Saturday.


Sports Day 2018

Sports Day 2018 finished with our Sports Assembly on Monday Morning. We looked at the qualities of elite athletes and how we could become the next one!

Congratulations to the HAWKS who won the Sports Day Trophy in what was a very tight event.

The Sport Committee would also like to thank all of our volunteers and helpers who made the day a great success!

Sports Day Wednesday 30th May 2018

Sports day is almost upon us and the weather forecast is looking positive.

Please remember to wear your house colours (Falcons – Blue, Eagles – Yellow, Hawks – Green and Ospreys – Red) and bring lots of water and sun cream.

Parents, friends and family are invited to the ROF field for the traditional sports day races at the following times:

P1, P7 and nursery races – 9.30-10.30am

P2 and P6 races – 11-12 noon

P3, P4 and P5 races – 1.30-2.30pm

Building works have now started on the school field so if you are having a picnic it will need to be out with the school grounds. Normal home lunch rules apply.

We look forward to seeing you then!


A massive well done to Bishopton Blue and Bishopton Red who competed in the RENERS cup at Renfrew Juniors today. Both played some lovely football with Bishopton Blue reaching the Semi Finals. The football and sportsmanship on show by all schools was fantastic. Well done to everyone involved and a special thanks to those who came down to cheer the team on!

Football Team update

The football team finished their league campaign with a scoring draw against St John Bosco. It was a close game and the team were disappointed as the final whistle blew but they should all be very proud with their excellent league form, only losing once all year.

Well done to everyone who has represented the team this year and thank you to the supporters who have cheered us on.

We have the RENERS cup in the next few weeks as we look to finish the year on a high.
