Infinity Academies Trust is a small (though expanding) Multi Academy Trust, located in rural Lincolnshire. The Trust was formed in 2016 with two academies, Spilsby and Gipsey Bridge. Since then it has recently welcomed the Great Oaks Federation, made up of St Thomas CE and Wyberton Primary, who will join the Trust on 1 April 2019.
What makes Infinity Academies Trust special is the shared commitment of all its schools to ensure that pupil wellbeing is at the centre of everything that they do. As a result of this ethos, there is innovative and inspirational practice taking place across the Trust in supporting pupils’ emotional and social wellbeing, and developing the ‘whole child’. At the same time, the Trust is careful to ensure that there is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to pupil wellbeing, and each school within the Trust is encouraged to meet the specific needs of its own pupils in the best way that it sees fit. This balance between shared vision and commitments, and the opportunity for schools to shape their provision for context (whilst also sharing practice and learning with others) is at the foundation of successful trusts. While the schools all embrace opportunities to embark on joint projects, the sharing of resources, and sharing of best practice, and regularly do so, each school also has its own unique and bespoke approach in supporting their own pupils.
