During 2017 - 2018 we plan to keep parents informed in two main ways:
1. Newsletters requiring the return of a note / form / permission slip will be emailed, added to the website AND sent home in paper format.
2. Newsletters which do not have a note / form / permission slip will be emailed and added to the school website. These Newsletters WILL NOT be sent home in paper format.
For Safeguarding reasons, Email addresses of folk who no longer have children at Ampertaine will be removed from our mailing list on Thursday 31st August.

Our most recent newsletters are available here for you to download but our Newsletter email facility is now in operation.
Please complete the Newsletter subscription form below, adding your child's name and class after your name as in this example:  Name: Mrs. Mary Johns (Terry P4, Kerry P1).
Make sure your email address is accurate with all dots etc. in the right places.
We will check all requests before they are added to our mailings list.

    Digital Families Sentinus PeaceIV

    A massive thank you to those that attend the evening. We had an excellent turn out for our first step into programming and coding of bebots. Pupils and parents from our shared education partner school Glen Primary School also took part. Pat from Sentinus guided us and taught us how to programme our bots using special coding software. Our challenge was to programme our bots to successfulyl navigate a race track in the quickest time. Our evening concluded with a race off finishing in an exciting race off final. Well done to all who took part. Your bots were amazing. Thank you to parents for your support and many thanks to those who assisted with tidying the hall and settting up for our free breakfast club. We hope you all enjoyed the evening.

    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.
