During 2019 - 2020 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.
