We aim to provide a safe, secure and welcoming environment where children are valued as individuals and where they can learn by playing together.

Jumping Jack’s primary role is to provide outstanding Care and Education for children under the age of 5 years. Our extremely comprehensive, exciting and fun curricula programme, provides a solid and robust foundation for all the children to learn, develop and grow in their own way and time. All the children benefit from a ‘Free Flow’ system which allows every child to access every activity and resource at their leisure with the constant support and engagement of our team of professional staff. Through careful and constant monitoring we are able to quickly identify children with additional needs which in turn increases their outcomes. We also work closely with every parent to ensure all the children within our setting are reaching their full potential and to identify any further external support such as Speech Therapy, Paediatricians, Health Visitors and Social Workers.
We provide excellent facilities in a family friendly environment and take children from the villages of Felmersham, Radwell, Pavenham, Milton Ernest and other outlying villages.

The Pre-School is a registered charity and run by an elected committee which ensures that major decisions making is in the hands of the parents who use the group.
We offer both indoor and outdoor activities to ensure we meet the needs of all of our children. The close proximity to Pinchmill Lower School enables us to enjoy a close relationship with them and benefit from many of its facilities.
We provide some adult led activities but many are initiated by the children and supported by staff. This ensures a real focus to their learning in an exploratory way. At the end of each session we all come together for group time.
Pinchmill Pre-School offers your child individual care and attention made possible by a high ratio of adults to children. We value the uniqueness of each child and plan activities to meet everyone's needs and abilities.

● has the chance to join in with other children and adults to live, play, work and learn together;
● is helped to take forward her/his learning and development by being helped to build on what she/he already knows and can do;

At Rushmoor we aim to enable pupils to acquire the knowledge, wisdom and self-discipline appropriate for life-long learning, employment and adult life. To achieve this aim we ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to develop their intellectual, physical and creative gifts, across a broad and balanced curriculum.
We promote the personal development of pupils, encouraging lively and enquiring minds, respect for themselves and others as well as a high regard for truth. We encourage self-confidence, integrity, social responsibility and awareness in students. Pupils learn to show respect and active concern for their school surroundings and for the wider environment.
Our aim is to provide an environment in which every pupil can achieve the highest standards in all aspects of school life in preparation for the challenges of the future. The stability and security of continuous education on one site, spanning the age range from 2 – 16 years is a major factor in helping us achieve this.
Developing the Individual
We place a major emphasis on the individual, recognising that all children are different, and we value each and every one in their own right. Each child has his or her own talents and abilities and we aim to encourage each one to develop their own special strengths and to grow in confidence and self-esteem to find their role in the community. Happiness is the first essential in this.
Through our pastoral care system, we aim to help each child to develop their potential in both academic and extra-curricular fields by encouragement, understanding and a close working relationship between children, staff and parents.
Whilst every effort is made to draw out the academic potential of each individual, we consider it equally important that the children should grow up to be confident, caring, honest and responsible young people, capable of making a positive contribution to the society in which they live and work.
We strongly uphold the Christian principles in as far as they refer to the way in which we behave towards each other. In practise, it means that we teach our children honesty, integrity, compassion and a true respect for all around them.
The key purpose of our setting is to offer care and education to children from 6 weeks until 4 years.
We are happy to work with families on an individual basis i.e. regards to any educational needs alongside other professionals who are involved in their care. Their additional requirement are considered when forward planning and where possible offering one to one time or small groups. We do not have any limitation on the amount of time we will support a child and their family.
We are a non-selective school for pupils aged between 6 weeks and 18 years. Our school site comprises of a range of buildings and sites.
First and most importantly we value your child as a unique individual. We look for your daughter’s or son’s strengths, academic and personal, and do our utmost to develop these.
At the same time we are sensitive to those aspects of your daughter’s or son’s academic work or personal growth which need further development. With sensitivity and tact we will help your child to make significant progress in these areas.
Our aim is to prepare your daughter or son for a happy and successful adult life, in which her or his personal qualities and values will be as important as her or his academic achievements.
We work with parents to make reasonable adjustments for pupils with additional needs on a case by case basis. On the rare occasion that this is not possible we aim to support parents in finding alternative placements.
