An adverse weather plan is in place for our school and will be put into action in the event of severe weather. Please ensure that you have returned your adverese weather update slip for this year with up to date emergency contact details.
Parents are reminded that in the unlikely event of school closures, we will communicate this with you as soon as possible through the SLC website, our own website, Twitter, App or text.
In snow or icy weather, the janiror's priority is to clear a path from the front gate to the front entrance of the nursery/school. Every effort will be made to create secondary paths thereafter. Please be advised that the school/janitor is not responsible for gritting the car park and therefore people use this at their own risk.

Welcome from the Head Teacher

A warm welcome to St. Hilary’s Primary School and Nursery Website.

I am privileged to be the Head Teacher of St. Hilary’s Primary School which is a happy, nurturing and engaging learning environment serving the St. Leonards area of East Kilbride. 

In St. Hilary’s we are committed in all we do to ensuring that, through working in partnership as a community of faith and learning, every child will realise their full potential. The culture of our school is one which reflects a commitment to children’s rights and positive relationships. Our school is inclusive where all are welcomed and valued. High quality learning and teaching experiences help to ensure our learners are motivated, successful, confident and responsible.

We believe education is a partnership between the school, our children, families and wider community. We hope that our website will further strengthen our partnership working and keep you up to date and well informed of events and everyday learning which happens in our school. 

I look forward to working in partnership with you to enable your child to be all they can be.
