Scissett Middle School is a 10 – 13 large middle school of 564 pupils. We are situated in the semi-rural Dearne Valley and have a wide catchment area that includes the villages of Scissett, Denby Dale, Skelmanthorpe, Flockton and Cumberworth.
Happiness, friendship, care, kindness and success, blend together effortlessly, creating the unique ethos and family atmosphere of our school. As a middle school, we are able to nurture and develop all our pupils in a safe, yet stimulating environment; the close care and support for each individual pupil is genuinely personalised. Outstanding pastoral care and an exciting and challenging curriculum, combine smoothly and effectively with a wide-ranging and inclusive programme of cross-curricular activities, to enable pupils to reach high academic standards.
Children at Scissett Middle School enjoy a wide range of activities that extend their experience in many parts of the curriculum. Health and Safety is emphasised in all school activities, and always plays a key role in the organisation of field trips and visits.
In our recent inspection (October 10-11), Ofsted judges us to be an ‘outstanding school’. The following quotes are just some of the inspectors' judgements of different aspects of our work in school. They give us great encouragement and act as a spur as we aim for further improvement.
“ This is an outstanding school. At the heart of its work is the excellent way in which it ensures that each pupil is treated equally and given equal opportunities to succeed.”
“ No stone is left unturned in the pursuit of providing the best possible education for pupils through high-quality teaching and learning and a rich curriculum.”
“ Pupils feel exceptionally safe in school because the care, guidance and support they receive are of the highest standard.”
“ Members of the governing body have remained very supportive of the school.”
“ Pupils are extremely active in their local community and enjoy taking on responsibilities in school.”
“ In lessons, pupils respond very enthusiastically to the consistently high levels of challenge that teaching presents to them.”
The school is very fortunate in the high calibre of its teaching staff who are both enthusiastic and fully committed to the ideal that every child should have the opportunity and encouragement to reach the highest standards of which he or she is capable. The staff put in a tremendous amount of effort, both in and out of the school, to achieve this aim.
