In order for us to make it another successful event, we would be really grateful if your child could bring donated items on the dates listed here. Our Christmas Fayre will take place on Friday 1st December at 1.15pm. If parent/carers are able to help at the Fayre, please contact the school, as we would appreciate any support.

27/10/23 Renfrewshire Council has confirmed that due to ongoing industrial action most educational establishments will be closed on Wednesday 1st November. As  a consequence, pupils will not attend Langcraigs on this day and arrangements for learning will be the same as on the three strike days in September. Full details from Mr Maclean can be found here and (for other establishments) from Renfrewshire Council here.

9/10/23 Just a little reminder that our Harvest Assembly will take place on Wednesday 11th October at 9.45am. We hope to once again be able to distribute food parcels to elderly residents in

2/10/23 October School Newsletter here.

28/9/23 Just a note to say a big ‘thank you’ if you have engaged (or tried to engage) with home learning over the past three days. Also, please remember we’re back to school as normal on Friday 29th September at 9am – see you all tomorrow!

27/9/23 Many parents and pupils have been experiencing problems accessing Google Classroom and Glow – this appears to be a problem arising from the numbers of users trying to access the sites for home learning (which, yes, may surely have been foreseen!). Teachers have been experiencing the same problems, so please be patient – avoiding peak times is definitely easier (but again, surely the whole point of providing home learning is for it to be done during the school day?). This is completely outwith Langcraigs’ control, but we sincerely apologise to you and offer our sympathy.

Latest from Renfrewshire Council on strike action here (as @ Friday 22 September at 5.30pm).

Welcome from the Head Teacher

Dear Parent/Carer,

Welcome to Langcraigs Primary School’s website.

In Langcraigs, we aim to provide a happy, secure and health promoting learning environment where your child will be encouraged to work hard, to develop social talents and abilities and to take pride in their achievements. We strive to provide all our pupils with a wide range of learning opportunities and our aim is to encourage pupils to be confident individuals, responsible citizens, effective contributors and successful learners.

I look forward to working with you to achieve these aims and to provide a quality education for your child.

Our School Handbook is your guide to the school and an electronic copy is accessible via the ‘Information’ tab above. It, along with links to Renfrewshire Council’s website, will provide you with information on all aspects of life and work within the school. I hope that you will find all the information on and accessible via our website to be helpful and informative.

If at any time there is any matter you wish to discuss, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Yours sincerely

Graeme Maclean

Head Teacher
