Welcome from the Executive Headteacher

Dear Friends and Families, 

I welcome you to the website of John Rankin Federation – we are a federation comprising of John Rankin Nursery School, John Rankin Infant School and John Rankin Junior School.   

In the Introduction to the Headteacher’s Standards (DFE January 2022), it states the following:  “Headteachers are leading professionals and role model for the communities they serve.  Their leadership is a significant factor in ensuring high quality teaching and achievement in schools and a positive and enriching experience of education for pupils.  Together with those responsible for governance, they are custodians of the nation’s schools.” 

I am honoured to be your new Executive Headteacher and to fulfil the prestigious position that the standards set out and tremendously proud to lead John Rankin Schools –it is clear it is a school that not only is a part of the community but truly has the community at its heart – where the staff team put children at the heart of every decision.  

As Executive Headteacher, I have overall responsibility for the Federation.  The Deputy Headteachers are Matt Percy and Neda Stephenson who lead and manage the day-to-day running of the schools.

To find out about the most recent events at John Rankin, please have a look through our website where you will find more information about our inspiring curriculum as well as recent newsletters.  We look forward to meeting all of you and getting to know your family and hope that if you are not already a part of this dynamic school, you make an appointment to come and see us for yourself. In the time being, we hope that this website gives you a snapshot into our school life. 


Ms F Cooper
Executive Headteacher
