Parent’s Evening Booking System goes live at 7pm!!

Dear parent,

You are invited to make appointments for the school’s parents’ evening online. Our next evenings are on 12th and 14th November for all classes P1-7.

To make your appointments please go to: https://www.parents-booking.co.uk/loirstonprimary

Please note: You need to type this address into your website browser’s ‘web address bar’.
Try not to ‘Google’ search the website address, it will not be searchable that way.

Login by entering the requested information, and then use the Booking Wizard to make your appointments.

You will need to enter:

Your title (Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms) and surname
Your child’s first name, surname and date of birth

Please note: The login details you enter must match those we have on record for you. If you have not alerted the school to any relevant name changes, we will be expecting you to login with the details you gave us originally.

The booking system will allow you to make bookings from 30th October at 7pm and will close for bookings on 10th November at 11.55pm.

Once you have logged in, we suggest you use the ‘Booking Wizard’ to make your appointments, although a manual booking option (one booking at a time, one child at a time) also exists. In the Booking Wizard you will be shown your child/children and all of their teachers. Toggling between your children will show you each child’s teachers. Tick the teacher(s) you wish to book (there’s a ‘Select All’ link) and enter your availability at the bottom of the page. The wizard will use this information to calculate the best order for your appointments, to help you visit teachers in the quickest manner possible.

Troubleshooting Tips

If you cannot login and have tried all the combinations you think we have on file, please contact the school office at loirston@aberdeencity.gov.uk
The email address you can enter is only used to receive a confirmation of your appointment. It will not be used as a login ‘check’. Your e-mail address is never the reason you cannot login.
If you have several children to make bookings for, and decide not to use the Booking Wizard, you can make appointments one-by-one using the ‘manual booking’ method. Use the ‘Change Child’ button on the blue bar (above the school’s name, at the top of the web page) to swap between your children.

If you are unable to book at home, please contact the school office for help.

Best wishes and Good Luck!!!,

S Campbell-Morgan


Every Day Heroes

As a “refresh” of the hugely popular Everyday Heroes art installation, Aberdeen Inspired, along with funding partners, The McGinty Group and Burness Paull LLP, are inviting pupils to suggest new “Heroes” to be added to a prominent wall in Aberdeen. Made up of images on individual tiles, and situated on an outer wall of Marischal Square, along Netherkirkgate, our current Everyday Heroes feature such diverse characters as 19th century explorer and sea captain, William Penny, current Doric champion and poet, Sheena Blackhall and our very own Caroline Thomson who tragically lost her battle with cancer.

Pupils are invited to consider and nominate local “Everyday Heores”, either past or present; they might be famous or simply known for their deeds within their local community. The only stipulation is that the nominated hero must have spent at least part of their life living and/working (or studying) in Aberdeen. Six new Everyday Heroes are to be chosen, and the new artwork will be installed in early November. Just prior to that, those who have suggested the chosen heroes will be invited along to local artist, Shelagh Swanson’s studio, to help put the finishing touches to the new tiles she will produce for this latest installation. Two of the six new “Everyday Heroes” will be selected from Pupils’ nominations.

Below is the link to the Nomination Form (You may need to use “Control” on your keyboard then “Click” on the link to open).
