Happy #SchoolUniformDay! We hope you are joining over 60 schools across the city who are taking part in wearing our school uniform as we home learn today? Do share photos with us!We can’t wait to see you.






At Hillwood we work hard with our parents, pupils and staff to create a warm and welcoming environment where pupils can learn and grow.  Hillwood is a fantastic place to learn and work. As a former P7 pupil said we are “A small school with a big heart!” Our school community is proud of this statement and live up to it daily. To find out more about Hillwood Primary and what is happening this term, please explore our website, follow us on Twitter @HillwoodPS or use the ‘Contact Us’ section of the website to get in touch.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Thank you to all who attended our virtual parents consultations this week. It was a little different due to COVID restrictions and we were disappointed we couldn’t share the learning that your children have been experiencing. We hope this short film gives a wee insight of what’s been happening and hope we can invite you all in soon.

Winter Respiratory illness – advice

Key advice for parents and carers from NHS Lothian:
In the home the risk of catching or spreading flu/cold like illness can be reduced by:
• Regular hand washing with liquid soap and running water
• Covering nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing
• Using a disposable paper tissue, disposed off immediately after use.
• You can teach your child to sneeze into the ‘crook’ of their arm rather than their hands, if they don’t have a tissue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQINuSTP1jI
• Good general cleaning of surface that everyone touches often e.g. TV remote, light switches, door handles, toilet flushes and tap heads.
Children should not return to school until completely well and 48 hours after symptoms have stopped.
