St John & St Francis Church School have a strong and extremely effective Board of Governors, also known as the Governing body. Their role is to work closely with the Headteacher and staff to shape the future of the school. The Board also decides the priorities that will help staff to raise academic standards and determine how the school will best spend its money to achieve its aims.

Members come from a wide range of backgrounds including parent and staff governors. It is an exciting and interesting role for anyone who is keen to be part of the the management team. The Board welcome inquiries from any parent interested in becoming a governor.

Governors can be contacted via the school office email; or St John & St Francis Church School, Westonzoyland Road, Bridgwater, Somerset, TA6 5BP.
