We would like to explore with parents, teachers and pupils, the types of homework and quantity of homework which has the greatest impact on pupils’ progress.
Consequently, we are asking parents to take the time to answer the following questions which should take no longer than a couple of minutes. Parents are asked to provide their own views as pupils’ views will be canvassed in school.
Scissett Middle School is a 10-13 middle school situated in the semi-rural Dearne Valley. It has a wide catchment area which includes the villages of Scissett, Denby Dale, Skelmanthorpe, Flockton and Cumberworth.
Children at Scissett Middle School enjoy a wide range of activities which extends 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.
To ensure that Scissett Middle School provides an outstanding education for all its pupils and prepares them for life in the 21st century.
We will create an inclusive culture of learning where all children will be challenged in their thinking, strive for continuous improvement and be motivated to become lifelong learners. We will empower our children to become respected citizens and enable them to make valuable contributions locally, nationally and globally.
