    Leavers Assembly and Last day reminder

    We held our leavers assembly this afternoon where our P7 pupils shined brightly, demonstrating their talents, their caring nature and all totally embodied the Ampertaine ethos and life. We are all going to miss our P7 class who have lead and guided our other pupils throughout this school year. They will be missed greatly by all of the staff and pupils, especially the children from Room 1 who have formed special relationships with our older children. Well done to all who took to the stage today. You all did us proud and stood full of confidence in front of a busy hall. Thank you to all who could attend today and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Have a lovely summer P7 and good luck for your new adventures. A quick reminder to everyone else for tomorrow our last day. Thursday 27th Non uniform day. Lunch available for children. All children collected at 1pm On the last day of term for P1-P6 we would encourage children to bring a board game or a toy. No electrical toys or equipment is to be brought to school on this day.

    PTA Update

    We are delighted to finish the academic year with another successful and well supported event, despite the miserable weather conditions. Thanks to the generosity and kindness of Ampertaine friends and families a further £1,179.80 was collected on Friday night, bringing the total funds raised this academic year to £3,620. This year we have used this money to fund valuable resources such as Mathletics and Lexia Learning, software that is of benefit to each and every child at Ampertaine Primary School. We have also been able to use this money to refresh the cycling proficiency road markings in the playground, to contribute towards afterschool club resources (such as the Lego Club) and to contribute towards other parties/events organised by the school for the benefit of our kids. So as we close off another academic year, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continuous support. Your kindness and generosity has been of real benefit to the school and is very much appreciated. Ampertaine PTA

    Wet but wonderful!

    A quick message to say THANK YOU to all who helped, supported, attended and assisted with our super Summer Fair. We survived a very wet evening. Everyone had a ball and the catering, music, face painting, lucky dip, raffle and washing line, helped us all enjoy a great evening. Although we were wet, it did not dampen our spirits and all had a fun filled time. This was not a fund raising event but one of celebration to end the year on a high and boy did it. Thanks also to those who came to our aid with cover as the weather decided to not play ball for our event. We hope everyone has a great weekend and we look forward to showing you all the super pictures taken of our event. Thanks again!

 Ampertaine PS would like to thank everyone who supported our Book Fair in March. 

A grand total of £600 was raised for the school

to spend on books as a result of your purchases.




As part of our WORLD BOOK DAY festivities our annual Book Fair arrived in school on Wednesday 6th March. 

On Friday 8th March all the pupils dressed up as a character from a book.  The costumes were amazing.  Well done to everyone involved!

We also had an Alternative Book Cover design competition.  Vouchers for our Book Fair were awarded as prizes. 

 Our school cooks also joined in the festivities by hosting a Mad Hatter'sTea Party themed school lunch. 

It was a fabulous day all round. 

Thanks DJ Colby for providing the music.







On Wednesday 26th June we said farewell to our wonderful P7 pupils.  It was a very special and emotional afternoon attended by family and friends of the P7 pupils.  The P7 pupils shared some of their favourite memories of Ampertaine, poems about the P7 pupils, favourite school trip memories and tips for new pupils.  We had music from tenor horns and the violin.  We had songs from four pupils.  Records of Achievement were presented a long with 'The most likely to become...' certificates.  The rest of the school joined them in two of their favourite assembly songs.  The afternoon was concluded by two pupils reading a Leavers' Prayer and three photo stories about the pupils.  The P7 pupils and their parents were then treated to icecream and strawberries before their departure. 

We wish you all well and hope you enjoy more

'Memorable Learning' at your new schools.
