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.
Inevitably there will be items left behind by the pupils. We make every effort to return NAMED items to the office area as soon as we can. These items then get sent back to the pupil. Naming all of your child's clothing and equipment can make a big difference in items being returned quickly.
Any items that are not labelled will be placed in the lost property area that is located inside left of the main door to the Sports Hall. Please not that these areas are cleared out at the end of every half term, so if your child loses something, get in there quick!
