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.

    Reminder of events next weeks

    Quick reminder of collection times for children next week. As you are aware our optional Parent teacher interviews will be taking place next week. To accommodate these all children will be collected from school at 1pm from Monday until Thursday. Friday will be normal collection times for children including those who will be up at the linen hall. MONEY SENT INTO SCHOOL. We ask that all money is sent into school in an envelope with the child's name and class clearly marked and an indication as to what the money is for. The oldest child is allowed to bring money on behalf of their younger sibling. School is very busy especially in the mornings. By sending envelopes this greatly assists out staff and is much appreciated. CAR PARK. We would remind parents that due to our limited space, please use the turning area to drop children off. If there are spaces available in the car park please use them. Parking beside the fence area limits our already small space and can restrict flow of cars entering and leaving car park.
