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.

    Ampertaine PTA

    Ampertaine PTA was set up 2 years ago, and in this time we have raised much needed funds for our school. To date, we have been able to fund many different aspects of school life, which have benefited all of our children. With budget cuts and the financial strain on our school, it is vital that we continue to provide as much financial support as we can. Plus our events to date, have given us all an opportunity to work together as a team! Even in the pouring rain!!!!! With this is mind, the first meeting of our PTA this academic year, will be held on Wednesday 11th September at 7.15pm in the school. We would like to encourage EVERYONE to come along. Our meetings are short (45mins) and informal. We would LOVE to see some of the new families to our school represented, as we know that everyone has something to offer our PTA. Of course, we would also LOVE to see the familiar faces too! We need new ideas! We need your support. Let’s try to do even more for OUR school and OUR children this year. We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday night. Ampertaine PTA
