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.
We have been advised that there has been an incident on the Tinkleton road involving a car. This has resulted in the ME008 and ME009 buses being caught in a traffic jam and will therefore be delayed in dropping pupils home. We have been updated that the ME008 collided with a car and some children may have witnessed the accident and may be a little upset when they return home. We do not believe that any children were hurt. Members of the school staff are at the location to the location to assist with the care of the children.
Update: Children on the ME008 bus has been transferred onto a new bus and are on the way home. The ME009 bus is backing up the lane and they will on the way home shortly.
