Excellence in the Middle at Puddletown

by Michael Ford last modified 23 Sep, 2015 01:01 PM

The SIAMS inspector was very impressed with St Marys Middle School, Puddletown, in June 2015. In particular, the acting head and RE leader drew praise. 100 pupils attended an optional communion service recently.

The inspector noted: “The distinctiveness and effectiveness of St Mary’s as a Church of England school are outstanding.

“The Christian values selected as the basis of the school’s vision provide clear direction for the whole curriculum and wellbeing of pupils and staff.

“The school makes excellent use of diocesan training and support. This has a direct impact on current leadership, improvement as a church school, and on pupils’ learning and personal development.

“RE is exceptionally well led and makes a significant contribution to the Christian character and to how well pupils understand and apply the school’s core Christian values.

“Partnerships with the church, the diocese and networks of schools are all of mutual benefit.

“A range of styles and settings for worship meets the spiritual needs of adults and pupils from all faith backgrounds.

“St Mary’s is an average sized middle school. It is part of the Dorchester Area Schools Partnership (DASP) and converted to academy status in June 2012. In April 2015, it also became part of the Greenwood Tree Academy Trust along with four of its feeder first schools. Almost all pupils are white British. The proportion supported by pupil premium funding is lower than average as is the proportion with special educational needs. The headteacher moved to another post in April 2015 and the deputy headteacher has taken responsibility for the current term.”
