School Communications

We work hard at John Rankin to make sure our parents are kept up to date and in the know.

Sharing information with our parents forms an important part of the parent and schools relationship which we value highly for building the children’s successes.

We spend a lot of time ensuring parents are communicated with effectively through both email as well as inviting you in to share in the children’s achievements during assemblies, presentation’s and plays. We do however appreciate you all have busy lives and sometimes cannot attend our events. To make sure you are able to catch up we put all of our presentations and newsletters here for you to look at any time.

Our 'School Newsletter' comes out every half term and gives parents both a reminder of upcoming events as well as a chance to join in the children’s successes.

We are lucky enough to have David Marsh here at John Rankin Schools, as a Parent and a Governor. David has worked in Journalism most of his life and is a former Guardian Production Editor and Night Editor for The Independent.

David has volunteered to run a Newspaper club here in School for a number of years. The club takes place during a lunchtimes for children in Years 5 & 6. The children produce a termly newspaper called the John Rankin News (JRN).
