Baked scones for the first time today and they didn't rise at all, can anybody tell me what went wrong?

Did you use the right flour? I'm not very good at baking, so I'm probably the last person who should be offering advice, but the only thing I can think of is the flour.

Put one level teaspoon of baking powder in with the sifted self raising flour. Make the mix a bit wet for a moist scone. Knead only a little, and cut out a circle with a plain cutter. Get oven hot 230 degrees C. Put scones one third way down oven space..

Possibilities include:
1) You used plain flour where your recipe called for self-raising.
2) Old self-raising flour which has lost its potency.
3) Old baking soda or baking powder if used (as above).
4) Dry ingredients not evenly distributed if using separate raising agents.
5) The dough wasn't worked and put into the oven fast enough. In scones the raising agents set to work the moment you add wet ingredients. If the dough gets left the chemical reaction can finish before the dough reaches the oven. This is particularly true of soda bread.

You probably didn't use a 'raising agent' Think i made some once and used plain flour and the same thing happened to me. They were fine but very heavy!

your scones could have not risen beacause
1) If your ingredients are out of date the scones will not rise because when ingredients go out of date they loose their activity, epecially self raising flour.
or.
2) The dry ingredients could not be mixed well enough
Good luck with your scones hope this helps. :)
