Important Information

Dorchester Middle School has been asked by Dorset Council to inform parents/carers that from September 2017 any penalty notices issued for unauthorised leave of absence or for poor attendance must be paid in full. Dorset Council will no longer be able to agree to parents/carers requesting payment by instalments.

Appointments/Absence requests

To improve communication in school we have set up a new email address for parents/carers to use regarding appointments.  If your child has an appointment or you have a request for absence leave please email:
