National Support School

Scissett CE Academy is designated as a ‘National Support School’ by the National College for Teaching and Leadership. This designation is in recognition of our previous Ofsted inspection results, which over many years have judged the school in care standards and education provision to be outstanding.

We have a strong record in successfully providing school-to-school support to other schools that have needed our help, with this support having had a positive impact on pupil outcomes. In our capacity as a National Support School we are available to share our approach and expertise to provide additional support for schools in challenging circumstances.

Our Head Teacher, Elaine Watson, is a National Leader of Education, an accredited School Improvement Partner and Professional Partner.

We are developing partnerships with schools across Kirklees and across the LA borders, to work with schools in neighbouring LA’s in conjunction with the Diocese of Leeds.

Scissett CE Academy has been selected by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) as a National Teaching School. Teaching Schools work with an alliance of other schools to provide support, deliver training and work with Higher Education Institutions to provide teacher training.

Yorkshire Anglican Teaching School Alliance currently has 40 members, some are strategic partners who will be more directly involved in delivery. Others are associate members who may choose to dip in and out of activities as appropriate to their needs.

All teaching schools are required to complete an action plan which focuses on the six key areas that teaching schools must fulfil.  The action plan is linked to national key performance indicators which are included in the plan. Details of progress against the success criteria will be added in line with our self-evaluation.

Schools interested in joining the Yorkshire Anglican TSA can contact us through the website at Yorkshire Anglican TSA or telephone 01484 861488.
