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.
For the attention of your children:
Ofsted is inspecting your school and would like to hear your views. You can do this by completing an online pupil questionnaire at the following link: https://ofsted.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/Pupil/10088319 This link must not be shared to anyone outside of the school.
Your views are really important to us and will help inspectors understand your experience of school. The questionnaire will close at 3pm on 18 September 2019, to give the inspector time to look at the results. The questionnaires work in Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer 11 and on mobiles and tablets when you copy and paste the link into the browser.
PLEASE NOTE: There will not be time for pupils to complete the questionnaire at school tomorrow so please give them the opportunity to complete the questionnaire this evening if possible.
