On behalf of the School Governors and Staff, I would like to offer you a warm welcome to our school community.  We hope that your child will be happy and successful at our school.

 We aim to work together with you, to help your child to grow not only physically and intellectually, but also spiritually and socially.

The information in this prospectus is a guide to the life of our school, which is for parents of children who are about to enter the school.  We have included information on all aspects of school life which we hope you will find of interest.  There will of course be many things you wish to know about the school and in a short prospectus of this nature we cannot hope to cover all of these.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 Our main aim is to provide for your children an organised, stimulating and exciting learning environment where high standards of work and display are expected. We endeavour to foster respect and tolerance for one another through allowing children to express and experience enthusiasm, interest, independence and delight in their surroundings.

 We hope that our parent/teacher relationships will form a partnership where we can work together successfully for the benefit of all of the children.  If at any time you have any  queries, or concerns regarding your child please do not hesitate to discuss this with the class teacher or myself.  The best times are before and after school, but if this is not possible an appointment can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.  We do understand that what may seem trivial to an adult can be a major crisis to a young child!

We trust that you will find us a happy and caring and hardworking school, one in which you can have confidence.


Elaine Watson



Mission Statement


For the year commencing 1 September 2005



Chair of Governors

Mrs E C Watson, B. Ed Hons, NPQH

Mr. Brian Kirkham



Scissett is a Church of England Aided co-educational First school for children in the age range 5 to 10 years.  We believe Scissett C.E. (A) First School should provide the best possible education for our children.

The school, as an educational establishment, acknowledges its Church of England, and therefore Christian, foundation.  Close links are established with St Augustine’s Church and we encourage children to grow intellectually, socially, morally, aesthetically, physically and spiritually within a Christian environment, through worship and the everyday life of the school.


We aim to enable each child, regardless of race, creed, gender or ability, to achieve their full potential.  Each individual is respected and their diversity of background is welcomed and highly valued.  Christian values, ideas and beliefs are promoted through the spiritual development of the school community, alongside tolerance, understanding and respect for other religions and ways of life.


We believe that daily acts of collective worship are important in nurturing concepts such as sensitivity to the needs of others and mutual respect, whilst helping the children to make their own positive response to God.



School Aims


Excellence for the whole child


Our children think that Scissett should


We aim for our school to be “A place where all succeed”

We believe our school is a place where:

· Children feel safe, secure and happy within a caring ethos and climate of mutual trust which values all members of the school and encourages a pride in personal contribution.

· Children are treated as individuals and are allowed to progress at their own level in a stimulating environment to develop to their maximum potential.

· Children are challenged, encouraged to experiment and to learn through first hand experience.

· There is no fear of failure.


We promote high expectations, high standards, and seek to provide children with quality experiences and a quality environment in which to work.


We offer opportunities for children to make choices, take decisions and express their own points of view fluently.


Children are encouraged to be independent learners, but are also offered opportunities to learn with others and develop enquiring minds.


Individuals develop a positive self-image, increase their self-esteem and are encouraged to succeed.


We recognise that the local environment is an important source of first hand learning experiences for all children.


We acknowledge that parents are the first educators of our children and seek to build on this foundation.


We seek to ensure that all individuals have full access to the whole range of opportunities on offer in school, including access to a broad and balanced curriculum which is relevant to the needs of each individual.


Parents, governors and other members of the community are welcome in school and are encouraged to take an active involvement in all aspects of school life.


Our agreed main aim for this school is to achieve for all pupils:


· the development of a lively enquiring mind through an environment which fosters enthusiasm, curiosity, the ability to observe, question and discuss;

· the acquisition and application of the basic skills of language, numeracy and science as part of the achievement of a broad and balanced curriculum;

· the development of awareness of values and social skills, sharing concern for other people, while developing self discipline, acceptable behaviour and positive attitudes towards themselves and others;

· the development of respect and understanding for religious beliefs and moral values and valuing people of other races, religions and ways of life.
