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, acceptance and kindness.

We look to inspire our school community and give them the tools to thrive in the modern world, summed up by our school aim of 'Inspire today to shape tomorrow'. 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.

Assessment and Results

Assessment Overview


Pupils at St. Mary's C.E. Middle School are assessed at regular intervals throughout their time at the school to help staff and pupils track their progress.  We want every child to reach their full potential and assessment is essential in ensuring the highest possible outcomes for each pupil.


The assessment in the school is split into two different cycles depending on the type of assessment being undertaken.  These are:

  • Annual Summative Assessments (Externally Marked)
  • Termly Achievement Grades (Teacher Assessment)
