Welcome to Puddletown CE VC First School

Welcome to Puddletown First School's website, we hope if you are a visitor that our website will give you a flavour of what we do, visits from prospective parents and carers are always warmly welcomed.

We are part of the Greenwood Tree Academy Trust - a multi academy trust that is made up of St Mary's Middle School, Milborne St Andrew First, Piddle Valley First and Frome Valley First. This is a tight pyramid of schools whose aim is to secure a smooth transition across the school phases that enables all the children to thrive.

If you have an existing contact with the school you will find all the information you need about us here as well as links to some of the amazing learning the children have been undertaking.
We are proud of our school, its church heritage and the community we serve. We aim to inspire our children to learn and to see themselves as active learners with an infinite capacity to improve. We do this in a safe and caring environment based on Christian principles where individual progress is celebrated.
As you look through our pages you will find key information and policies as well as reports and photographs from the children about their learning. We are a busy school so there will be plenty of updates. I hope that by looking at our website that you will be as inspired by the children as I am!
