Giles Mercer, Chair of Governors of St John’s Catholic Primary School, writes as follows:


We are delighted to welcome our new Headteacher, Mrs Bennett, to St John’s Catholic Primary School. Mrs Bennett’s previous appointment was as Headteacher of St Joseph and St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School, Wells, where she successfully raised standards across the school, achieving an Outstanding RE inspection in January 2017 and a Good Ofsted outcome in November 2016. From September until December 2016 she was Executive Headteacher also of Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School in Weston-super-Mare. Mrs Bennett is a member of the parish of St Benedict’s, Stratton-on-the-Fosse.

The governors are confident that Mrs Bennett will lead St John’s with vision, great commitment, experience, and ability in its next phase for the benefit of all the children of St John’s Catholic Primary School. Mrs Bennett is enjoying getting to know the pupils, parents and staff of the school and she is looking forward to meeting all of the wider community over the coming months.
