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.

    Relationship & Sexuality Education:Destination Adolescence

    At last night's meeting of parents a small focus group met to discuss the BHSCT Relationship & Sexuality Education (RSE) booklet for P7 Leavers. They heard that because of reorganisation of hours and duties, school nurses were not in future coming to schools to give their P7 Talk. Instead, the "Destination Adolescence" resource has been created. Teachers are being asked to deliver the program to P7 children in their final term at Primary School. We would like to have your views on the three parts of Destination Adolescence and have created a short online survey which, we hope, will give you an opportunity to express your views. Please remember, that these elements are for P7 children in their final term and that each year parents will be asked whether or not their children are to take part. As a result of the survey, decisions will be made about what is to be included and what is not to be included. The school RSE Policy will then be updated and sent to parents for review. Governors will then formally adopt the policy at a future meeting. We would invite ALL parents to take part in the survey by clicking on the link below: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KTMD2S3
