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.

    Little Amps Christmas Fundraising information

    Dear Parent, As you will be well aware, Christmas is less than 7 weeks away. This year, Little Amps is offering childcare to allow you some valuable shopping time!! On Friday 30th November and Friday 7th December, Little Amps will open its doors between 5.30 and 9.30pm. The idea is that you drop the kids off, for all or part of that time. You then have free time to do some shopping, go out for dinner, wrap presents.....just make sure you come back for them!!!! Children (pre school age and up) will be looked after by the staff and committee of Little Amps, and will be entertained with Christmas movies, games, snacks and hot chocolate. The cost for the evening will be £10 per child, and £8 per sibling with all money raised going directly to Little Amps. This week, each family will receive a leaflet with the details, so please keep an eye on your children’s school bags. Places must be booked and paid in advance, as we can only facilitate a limited number of places. We would much appreciate your support with this fundraising venture as we try to raise essential funds for our setting. If you have any questions, please contact Little Amps. Many thanks, The Staff and Committee of Little Amps.
