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.
You are not able to use childcare vouchers towards the cost of school trips during the schools day or for residential trips. These vouchers are only allowed to be used for qualifying childcare which is registered and aproved. School residential trips do not qualify as registered or approved childcare because they occur outside of the school premises. Vouchers can be used to pay for approved childcare on school premises, provided it is outside of school hours for children who have reacher compulsory school age.
