Our Mission Statement

Excellence for the Whole Child. A place where all succeed

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27 


Hello and welcome to Scissett CE Academy.


We aim to work together with you, to help your child grow physically, intellectually, spiritually and socially and become the best they can be.

A warm and welcoming environment allows children to settle, develop and thrive. Our curriculum aims to develop a fully rounded student, fostering and encouraging skills and strengths across the full range of subjects and themes taught.

Respect, independence and creativity are characteristics we strive to nurture within our children. Our Christian ethos and drive for high standards, our hardworking and enthusiastic staff and our dedication to providing the best care we can for each pupil, ensures we are continually moving forward, adapting and encouraging all our community to reach their full potential.

If you would like to visit our school, please arrange a time and we will be pleased to show you around.

School Games Mark Award

We are very excited to announce we have earned the School Games Mark Gold award for 2021-2022. This award is a national award that recognises the value of sporting education in primary schools. This achievement has been a whole school effort, from pupils taking part in curricular and extra-curricular sporting activities, to parents supporting us in attending as many Shelley Pyramid sports events as possible. Over the last academic year, we have worked with a wide range of providers, including Huddersfield Giants Community Trust and Utopia Gymnastics, to provide meaningful and active sports provision for our pupils as well as high quality CPD opportunities to upskill our teaching staff.
