Pupils will be greeted by their class teacher who will take the children to class. Parents/carers are then asked to leave the playground via the front gate on School Road. For parent/carers of Nursery children, you will both enter and leave via the front gate on School Road.

Special Mentions - Celebration Assembly
Laughton Junior and Infant school have a range of school clubs on offer for the children after school.
We are very proud of our choir at Laughton. Every year, children in Years 2-6 are invited to take part in the Young Voices event in Sheffield as part of the Wider Opportunities programme. The children learn a wide variety of pieces to sing with the Young Voices Choir at the Utilita Arena, Sheffield. After a rehearsal session with the orchestra, they perform, along with 5000 other children, to parents, family and friends in the concert. An amazing experience for all involved!
In addition, the children from Years 1-5 take part in the Rotherham One Voice event which is a smaller venue and a further opportunity for the children to perform.
Last year our Choir also performed at the Christmas service at our local church, where they sang to parents / carers and performed for their friends!
Choir club runs at different points throughout the year and is open to all children from Year 1 to 6.
This club is for all year groups. Our main aim is to build up the children's confidence in expressing themselves through different art media. We teach skills, techniques and art styles so they can express their creativity. Children become familiar with using different materials/ techniques and explore their own ways of using them for individual expression. Each session builds on skills to then produce a final product, which the children can take home or form part of a school display. We have an open, friendly and supportive environment with each other and it is encouraged to champion each other's work during sessions and afterwards.
The school operates a dress code:
Skirt/Trousers Grey or Black (Red checked dress for girls in warm weather)
Polo/ T Shirt White or Red
Sweatshirt/Cardigan Red (plain or embroidered with school name and or logo)
Black Footwear -Flat/low heeled shoes with secure fastenings (Can be trainers these should be black if possible).
Jewellery - Children can wear stud earrings.
Plain White T Shirt (no football shirts)
Black shorts or leggings / tracksuit bottoms
Our uniform is available to buy from numerous retailers, such as Pinders. Most supermarkets stock the uniform. The children do not have to have an embroidered jumper or cardigan but there are retailers who have the logo for embroidery. Please ask at the school office for details.
We strive for our children to look smart and have a sense of community by wearing our shared
uniform. However if the uniform causes any issues, please come and see a member of staff.
Please see our Uniform Policy for more information.
School dinners are cooked and served daily by Mrs Thomson and Mrs Gladwin. A variety of meals are on offer, with 4 choices everyday.
The menus are on a 3 week rotation. See the menu which shows what is being served in school this week. If your child has any allergies please do not hesitate to inform the office and we will ensure we meet with you and the catering team to design a slightly amended menu and to write an allergy plan.
The school catering company work closely with us to make sure we are serving food the children like to eat whilst being balanced and healthy. The staff from Education Catering Services come to do food tasting with all of the children in the Autumn term, meet with school council to explore pupil views and hold tasting for parents during parents' evenings throughout the year. The food is delicious, just ask the many staff who have school dinners during the week. We invite all parents of our Reception class to come in and taste our school dinners when their children start school.
