Laughton Junior and Infant School are committed to providing the best possible education.

We want all children to develop key life skills in order for them to be able to face the realities of the world we live in; we want each and every child to reach their full potential whilst having an enjoyable and memorable time at school.

We aim to develop resilience and encourage children to ask questions, solve problems and reflect on their learning. We want to develop inquisitive minds and promote a deeper philosophical level of thinking where everyone’s views are listened to and valued.

Our links with the local community are strong and the positive partnership developed between home and school enables our children to thrive in all areas whilst valuing diversity and promoting mutual respect for each other.

We understand the importance of positive mental health and the need for children to feel happy, safe and secure if they are to grow into confident individuals. As a result of this we work closely with the children, families and outside agencies in order to support in this area.
