The Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) meets each half term and all members of the school community are welcome to contribute ideas and expertise.

The PTFA can be contacted via email at johnrankinptfa@gmail.com or visit their Facebook page at John Rankin PTFA

The PTFA takes a very active role in the life of the schools, serving refreshments at special events, organising discos, film nights and seasonal treats for the children as well as a combination of social and fundraising events.

All parents, relatives and carers are part of the PTFA when their child joins the school. Come along as a family and enjoy events like FoodFest, Bonfire Night, Christmas Bazaar or Summer Funfest. It's a great way to meet other parents and get involved in school life. It also raises extra funds for the school to provide more opportunities for our children.
