Thursday 18th January... Good morning, everyone.
7.00 am
The information I have received this morning suggests that:
1. Main roads are clear but care needed.
2. Side roads frozen with ice/snow.
3. No other school closures in our area 
4. Heating and electricity on in school.
SCHOOL IS OPEN TODAY BUT PLEASE MAKE SURE NOT TO TAKE ANY RISKS WITH YOUR CHILDREN. IF YOU ARE NOT BRINGING YOUR CHILDREN TO SCHOOL, WE FULLY UNDERSTAND.
MAKE SURE ANY ABSENCE NOTES MENTION BAD WEATHER AND WE CAN RECORD THAT AS A REASON FOR ABSENCE ON THE SCHOOL SOS RECORDING SYSTEM.
PLEASE MAKE WISE DECISIONS AND PLEASE TAKE CARE.

Thanks to Lorna, Denise, Lisa, Lizzie, Michael, Jacqui for their early morning weather reports!

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!!
