Click on the image below to have a virtual tour of our amazing school. This clip was made a few years ago, but our building hasn't changed and it gives you a chance to see inside your classroom, the playground and where you will have your lunch, as well as lots more. We hope you enjoy it! Thank you to Mr Mowat for creating it for us!

Our School Uniform - added 21.04.22 
We'd like to share our school uniform with you - we are all very proud to wear it. Two of our former Calderwoodies created this video for you, as well as a fun colouring sheet. Esther has drawn a special Calderwood boy and girl for you to colour in and share with us, and your friends and family. Please click here to download your very own special colouring pages. We'd love to see your photos...please tag us @calderwoodslc on Twitter. Click on the image below to watch our school uniform video. 

Welcome and Induction Diary- added 19.04.22 

Very important letters have been posted out to the children. The envelope will include: 
We would ask that you bring your child along to as many of the events as possible.  Anyone can bring your child along: grannies, grandpas, aunties or uncles.  It doesn't really matter, as long as your child is there!  We usually find that the more events your child comes along to, the easier it is on the first day!  

We have split the children into two groups - Group A and Group B. This is not their class for Primary 1 as our numbers may change over the next few weeks and months for a variety of reasons e.g. families moving into our catchment area or any placing requests to Calderwood. For the purposes of induction, we have tried to ensure that children from the same nursery will attend together so that the children have a familiar face around. The group that your child will be in, will be confirmed in the letter that you will receive through the post. 

Important Enrolment Information - added 17.01.22 
As you know, enrolment this year has to be carried out remotely via an online form and follow up phone calls from the school (coming soon). Normally during our face to face enrolment appointments, we would give you lots of information away with you to read at your leisure. Below are 'click here' links to access all the information you will need about your child starting school in South Lanarkshire Council and at Calderwood Primary. We hope you find these useful.
