The Governing Body is committed to improving the lives of children and families at Laycock. It does this by challenging and supporting the senior leaders of the school, by sitting on committees and by visiting the school. Staff, parents and community members give liberally of their time, experience and expertise to be governors. All Laycock Governors are appointed by the Chair and the existing governors.
Meet the Laycock governors:
Chair Of Governor/ Safeguarding Governor
Stephen Deutz (Appointed 13.11.2018)
I have been a governor since November 2018 and feel immensely proud and privileged to be part of such an amazing school. I live in Islington with my partner, Matthew, and dog, Peggy. I have been a government lawyer for nearly 20 years, and since 2010 have worked in the Department for Education. I have a strong belief in public service and want all children to have access to an excellent education. I look forward to playing my part in supporting the life and work of Laycock and its community.
Vice Chair Of Governor/ Chair of Resources committee
Mark Worrall (Appointed 13.06.2017)
I became a school governor in June 2017 and am passionate about delivering an inclusive and outstanding education to all young people regardless of their circumstances. As a child I experienced first-hand the effects a poor school environment can have on life opportunities and this motivates me to want to make Laycock Primary School a place of excellence.
Co-opted Governor/ Chair of Learning & Standards committee
Jon Holland (Appointed 08.11.2016)
I am a Parent Governor, and started in November 2016. I am the Chair of the Standards, Learning & Inclusion Committee, and lead Governor for English. I have a son at Laycock who is currently in Year 4. I have spent most of my career in Adult Social Care, most recently with a charity working with homeless people in Camden.
Co Opted Governor
Callum Sims (Appointed 13.11.2018)
I joined the Laycock school governing body at the beginning of the 18/19 school year. I wanted to be a part of Laycock as I am passionate about education. With my parents both being teachers I’ve grown up with an appreciation for the important role that teachers play in our society and in shaping the young minds of the future.
I have been a governor since June 2017 and am proud to support my local community through my involvement with Laycock. I am passionate about the power of education and am delighted to be a member of the Learning, Standards and Inclusion Committee.
