Welcome to our Local Advisory Board (LAB) section.

Spilsby Primary Academy is part of the Infinity Academy Trust which is governed by trustees. The Trustees have delegated certain local aspects of the governance of this academy to a Local Advisory Board (LAB). The LAB Governors’ task is to ensure that things are running smoothly, to provide support and encouragement and to offer a sympathetic but critical ear.


We are all volunteers dedicated to supporting our children by raising school standards.

Coming from the local community, we bring skills from other areas of our life and work closely with the head teacher to give a viewpoint from outside the educational establishment. This allows us to support and challenge the head teacher as aims and objectives are set. With the head teacher as our professional advisor we advise the trustees on policies and targets for achieving these aims and objectives as well as monitoring and evaluating the progress being made.


We spend time with the head teacher and senior leadership team looking at tracking data and ensuring limited resources are used to best effect. Another of our key roles is to visit the school on a regular basis so that we can evaluate the reports we receive from the head teacher and her staff. An overview of these visits for this academic year is available in the documents below. Providing strategic leadership and accountability may be our official role, but everything we do centres around the education and well-being of our children.


Should you wish to formally contact the governors, please ask at the school office. Alternatively, for general enquiries about the role of a governor, expressing an interest in becoming a governor or questions about how our governing body works, please use the link below.
