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.
Welcome to the new Parental Advice Area. As a school, we are contacted by many different organisations that can provide help and advice with being a parent and bringing up your children. We will post useful materials in this area for you to access. Please note that these are all third party materials and the school does not accept responsibility of the advice or opinions contained within them. Should you know of other useful materials that you would like us to put in this area for use by other parents, please send details to the school office.
Here are a list of useful websites that can give you advice on many different areas of child safeguarding and wellbeing. All of these lnks will take you to the external website for the organisation.
