There is a current issue with the P1P Team at the moment. IT are working really hard to get it sorted as soon as possible. Mrs McAvoy wanted me to let you know she was sorry she couldn’t wish you a lovely weekend on the team but I said I would pass it on to you here.

Have a good weekend and fingers crossed it is all fixed for next week!

Blogs, Email and Twitter Issues

Hello there

As you may be aware we are having some issues with a delay between posts on the blogs and email updates. We have made a few changes behind the scenes that will hopefully help with this problem, however, there may be some teething issues so please bear with us as we iron them out!

Previously, the email updates contained posts from the class you subscribed to and any posts from the main school blog. We think this is where the delay was happening. Therefore, if you want to receive updates from the main school blog and your child’s class blog, you will need to subscribe for the class and the main school blog updates and will receive two emails. The window for these emails arriving should be between 5 and 7pm each night with any updates from that day being sent through to your email. Please be aware that any posts added to the blog after 5pm that day will be in the update email the following day.

Example: if you have a child in P4M and P7H you should subscribe to both classes and will receive an email for each. If you also want to receive any posts on the main school blog (general posts that apply to the whole school), please subscribe to that also.

In addition we have changed the way in which our blog posts are pushed to the twitter feed. This should result in twitter being updated within a few minutes of the class teacher posting on the blog and information getting to you in a more timely manner.

Also to ensure we are reaching as many people as possible we have set up a Facebook page which will also be updated from the school blog. Search for Bishopton Primary School Renfrewshire or click here and like and follow our page. Please note, as with all our social media channels, this will not be monitored outwith school hours and should not be used as a means of contacting the school. If you wish to contact us please do so by contacting the school office.

Finally we are still experiencing issues with the enquiries email address. We are hoping that this will be resolved soon. In the meantime if you have sent an email and not received a response please contact the office and we will ensure your enquiry is dealt with promptly.

Thanks for your patience as we work to find a resolution.

Design a Flag Challenge – Taylor Wimpey

Taylor Wimpey West Scotland has challenged the pupils of Bishopton Primary school to design a flag that will take pride of place at the entrance to the latest new homes at the development at Dargavel Village, Bishopton.

The winning design will be made into a flag that will fly at the entrance to the new development to welcome visitors.

  • Keep your design big and bold
  • Designs should be simple and not too detailed
  • All design should make use of solid colours
