Our Governors are fully involved in the life of the school and they all have voting rights.
Our long standing chair of Governors, Mr Robert Ellis, stood down at the Summer Full Governing Body meeting. We have thanked him for his services to the school.
Mr Chris Lucas is our Vice Chair (and will be acting chair until an appointment is made).
Mrs Clare Wilkinson is the staff Governor and, as Head teacher, Mrs Gill is also on the Governing Body.
The Governing Body has a full Governors meeting once a term and each committee meets on a termly basis.
During the building works, we also had a building working party who met as and when needed to discuss the build and the health and safety implications this has on the school.

Pen profiles of our Governors
I’ve been a governor at Laughton Junior and Infant school for just over a year now and I’m really enjoying it. I had, however, been involved with the school for a few years through Achievement for All, during which time I have had the pleasure of getting to know the children and staff. So when Mrs Coates asked me to fill a vacancy on the governing body, I jumped at the chance. I have been a teacher/educational consultant for more than 25 years but I keep learning new things as a governor. My role as a governor changes as the school changes and grows. Currently I am linked with Mrs Wilkinson, working together to make sure the children with Special Educational Needs achieve the best they can, and I think Mrs Gill has a few more things for me to do in the future! The best thing about being a governor at Laughton Junior and Infant school is the warm welcome I get from everyone I meet there, every time I visit.
I have been a governor at Laughton Junior and Infant School since December 2001 which makes me the longest serving member of the current Governing Body and I have served under three headteachers. I was originally appointed by the Local Authority but I am now one of the “Co-opted” Governors. At present I am the Attendance Governor, sit on the Resources Committee and chair the Pay Committee.
It is a privilege and a pleasure to be able to support the headteacher and all her staff, in however small a way, to make Laughton a happy, safe and successful place to work and study. One of the downsides to being a governor is that there are a great many very long policies to read and approve although this does mean that insomnia need never be a worry!
