Rackenford C of E Primary School is a small rural school in the heart of the local community. It is part of a small federation along with Tiverton High School and Heathcoat Primary School. Sammy Crook is the Executive Head across the federation. Four years ago, the school began to welcome children and families who wanted to have a more flexible approach to learning, valuing the wider contributions to children’s education. We are so proud that we are able to be a fully inclusive school embracing all families in our community, those who wish to home educate their children for part of the time and those who wish for their children to attend school full time. Flexi schooling has brought us new families both locally and from far and wide, which has had a positive impact on the rise in pupil numbers on roll.

We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated and experienced person to join the Federations Administrative Team from September 2022. This role will be based at Rackenford C of E Primary School.

You must be enthusiastic, committed and motivated with a friendly ‘front of house’ and telephone manner plus good written and verbal skills.
