Schools Cup Hockey Stars!!

Congratulations to Erin Mulholland and her team in making history for Rainey Endowed School by winning the 2018 Schools Cup.

Three Ampertaine girls: Erin, Gabriella and Bethany played in today's final.

Well done to every squad member and their dedicated coaches!


PTA in Action!!  (Oh Deere!)

Well done to the Three Dads: their hard work on Saturday morning means that all of our roofs, gutters and spoutings are in great working order.
Work has now been planned to square up the Ampertaine Villa in our play area to make it ready for the longer days and drier weather. Thanks, everyone!

Memorable Learning

 Welcome to the Ampertaine Primary School website. Whoever you are, we hope that you will enjoy your visit and find our pages interesting and useful.

Our small rural school has one hundred and twenty six 5-11 year-old girls and boys whose experiences are designed by 5 teachers, 3 classroom assistants and 2 administrative staff.

We welcome everyone to our school and do all in our power to ensure that children's time with us is safe, enjoyable and fruitful.

Parents, children, residents and business folk rely on us to provide the future drivers of our community... hopefully, your visit will give you some idea of how the  ambition, confidence, reliability, integrity and spirit of our youngsters are nurtured and guided.

YUUUMMMY!!  Thank you to Louise, Jackie and Jill who cooked our potatoes for us. They were delicious!!

    PTA Treasure Hunt & BBQ: Fri. 6th June

    Your PTA is organising a grand end-of-year Treasure Hunt which will be held on Friday 8th June. Please book this date in your diary. As this is a fundraiser which will help to bring our Ipad collection up to "class size", we need all the support we can get. Please invite friends... the more cars the merrier! There will be a grand BBQ back at school with ALL children receiving FREE hot dogs / drinks. We want to avoid collecting large amounts of cash on the night so we would invite you to book your places by returning the note being sent home with children after the May Day break. We will send out regular reminders and posters will be put up in local shops, halls etc. We look forward to your support!

Could you help cook/serve/provide food for the BBQ? Could you help with car parking? Could you meet and greet those taking part in the treasure hunt? Could you donate a prize? Could you help organise games or activities for the children? Our next meeting is this Wednesday 18th April @ 7.30pm. If you feel you could help us in any way, please either come to this meeting, or e mail the PTA at . Any help at all would be much appreciated! Many thanks in advance, Ampertaine PTA

    Dinner money reminder!

    Hi all! Please remember our next yummy 4 week dinner menu is available to browse over on the website, or a paper copy is available in the foyer of the school. We would ask that all dinner money be sent in on a Monday for the week ahead, as this helps with the admin for both the kitchen and in the school office. Money can be sent in with the eldest child in the family (or individual pupils) - but please ensure it comes in a CLEARLY MARKED NAMED ENVELOPE. Pupils are passing change/money to teachers and they are unsure of their school dinner days and at times, are not handing in the correct amount due. Then this needs to chased up! School dinners are £2.60 per day and we really appreciate your co operation in this matter. Thank you



Our P7 pupils took part in a 3 day computer coding course - HIVE HACKERS.  The course was run by Price Waterhouse Cooper, a very large accountancy firm.  They really enjoyed it and were presented with certificates and medals for completing the course.
