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.

    Message from our PTA

    Dear all, Firstly, many thanks for making our ‘Ladies Night’ such a huge success. We will let you know as soon as we have our final total, but we already know that it has been very worthwhile. The last PTA event of this academic year, will be a family fun night on Friday 14th June. We are in the planning stages, and plan to meet on Tuesday 21st May @7.15pm to discuss the evening. If you are able to help, or have any ideas for the evening, then please attend this meeting. We need help with so many different things such as games, prizes, car parking, food, etc. Please don’t assume that others will be able to do all this. The more help we have, the more everyone can enjoy the evening. This night will only be possible with your help. It would be really nice to end the year with something that can be enjoyed by the whole family, whilst also benefiting our school. We look forward to seeing you next Tuesday night. If you are not able to attend but wish to help, then please e mail Thanks again, Ampertaine PTA

    Dear parents and guardians, As the weather begins to heat up for the summer term, please make sure that you send your child to school with a layer of sun cream already applied, and appropriate protective clothing for outside playtimes such as sun hats. Please also make sure your child is wearing appropriate school uniform. For boys this can be plain dark school shorts with school footwear. Girls can wear blue gingham dresses, or plain dark shorts if preferred with suitable school footwear. Many thanks Mr M Dillon
