Christmas Jumper Day

Thank you very much for your continued support with our Charitable Donations.  So far we have raised almost £550 for Save the Children.  There is still time to donate through Parent Pay if you wish.

I am also delighted to announce that we raised over £800 for Children in Need.  In today’s climate this is a phenomenal sum. Well done and thank you once again.

Christmas Hampers

A great big thank you to our Bishopton Family.  We collected so many donations for our hampers that we were able to make up 38 very full packages.  As always our families are very generous.  We must also thank out local Co-op for donating the bags which made Mrs Fraser and Mrs Jack’s job of packing so much easier.  We are very grateful to both of them for doing such a super job.

Rev Smith of Bishopton Parish Church put us in touch with Erskine, Bishopton and Inchinnan Unite Volunteers who were delighted to uplift the hampers and distribute them to families in Bishopton.  Our House Captains made us very proud when we handed over the packages.  4 of the Captains then delivered a hamper personally to a local resident close to the school.

We are very happy to be able to support our local community and once again thank you all for your generosity.

Merry Christmas everyone.


Communication with Class Teachers

Dear Parents,

Just a reminder that parents should not be communicating with class teachers through their child’s Glow email address or through the class Team.  Glow is solely for pupil and staff use.

Communication should be directly from the parent’s own email address and should, in the main, be directed through the email address. If a teacher has agreed to communication from a parent through their Glow email address please be mindful of the fact that are only obliged to respond during working hours, outwith teaching time.

If you have an urgent enquiry  during the school day you can call the office and speak to the relevant depute who will be happy to follow up with the class teacher.

Thank you for your support.

We will also be creating a display in school of all the winners for everyone to admire.

Well done to all of our talented entrants and thank you for your enthusiasm.

Our Parent Council have also been working hard to support our Road Safety messages and have put together this very professional video.  Please click on the link.


RSNO and Children’s Classic Concerts Christmas Show

Join RSNO and Children’s Classic Concerts for a free family Christmas show, ‘The Night Before Christmas,’ this Saturday. Kids and grown-ups can watch and sing along as Owen Gunnell makes a mad-dash attempt to organise his Christmas festivities after discovering he slept through the first 12 days of December! The story follows the CCC presenter as he scrambles to organise his celebrations and even discovers he forgot to write his letter to Santa. With a little bit of help from the RSNO musicians and the RSNO Junior Chorus, Owen endeavours to get sorted on time, and get everyone in the Christmas spirit along the way.

‘The Night Before Christmas’ will premiere live on the STV Player and the RSNO and CCC’s Facebook pages and YouTube channels on 12 December 2020 at 2pm.  It will be available to watch for 30 days.

A trailer for the show can be found here:

Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 11 December 2020

This year has not been so good for lots of children and grown-ups.  When it comes to having fun we have some catching up to do.  In this spirit we will be having our usual Christmas Jumper Day to support Save the Children.  We would like everyone to put on a Christmas Jumper. It could be an old jumper or top covered with stickers, tinsel, foil or anything sparkly.  You don’t have to go to the shops!  Our Pupil Council have already made posters and displayed them in their classroom.

As before, we are suggesting a donation of £1 which you can make through Parent Pay.  This will be open until 18 December.

Thanking you in advance and looking forward to a fun day.

P5 thank the transport services (bus, trains and lorries), P6 thank education and childcare and P7 thank the food services.

Christmas Art Day P1-4
