Welcome to St Mary's C.E. Middle School

Thank you for visiting the website for St. Mary's C.E. Middle School. We are a 9-13 middle school situated on the outskirts of Puddletown, a small village in the beautiful Dorset countryside. We are a church school with an ethos built on the core Christian values of respect, forgiveness, justice, uniqueness, equality and acceptance.

Our aim is to give every pupil the chance to achieve their God given potential in all areas of their life and we are proud to have been assessed as an outstanding church school in our last two Church of England inspections. We expect the highest standards in both academic work and behaviour and we place our children at the centre of everything we do.

The pupils, staff and governors are very proud of our school and we hope that this website will allow you to see why. We look forward to having the opportunity to meet you in person.

Year 6 SATS Results

The Year 6 SATS tests results for the last three years can be seen below.  They show the percentage of pupils who have achieved ARE (Age Related Expectation which is the national standard expected of a child in Year 6) and GD (Greater Depth which means that a pupils is working above the national standard of a child in Year 6).  The figures in brackets are the national average for each result.

The progress that each pupil makes is calculated by comparing their attainment at Key Stage 1 (Year 2) to their attainment at Key Stage 2 (Year 6).  These results are averaged out to give a school progress measure score.  A school score of 0 indicates that pupils in the school progress at the same rate as the national average.  A positive score means that the pupils in the school achieve progress higher than those nationally and, conversely, a negative score indicates that pupils in the school achieve progress lower than those nationally.  Please note that these results for the 2017/2018 SATS are not released until December 2018.
