The toddler room is large with many rooms to allow free flow and a sensory room for all children to access. The pre-school is made up of 2 rooms; the smaller room is used for literacy and maths small group work to prepare children for school. The larger room allows children to choose what activities they participate in and free flow into the garden.

We offer 3 play rooms, a sensory room and a newly equipped all weather garden area. All children are given the opportunity and encouragement to learn through play, have fun, discover new experiences and explore. Our enabling environments also inspire curiosity and opportunity for individuals to follow dreams and capture their own interests.
As Early Years Educators we support all the children to develop confidence, independence and the opportunity to reach their full potential. As all children are individuals we at Putnoe Woods observe and assess individual capabilities and development at the child's pace, tracking their development and identifying their needs.
At Putnoe Woods we employ 2 Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Officers who are key persons to our children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Our SEND Officers foster close relationships with both the child and their family as to ensure individual needs are supported and met. As a pre school we also have excellent relationships with the Child Development Centre and our local feeder schools whom welcome well supported transition visits.

Children well-looked after in our inclusive Pre-school where we celebrate the fact that each and every child is unique and that every child is different. Children with SEND are assessed by Pre-school staff on entry through first meeting with parent(s) and their child at home; then observing and listening to the child on their visits to the setting and enquiring about the child’s developmental journey from birth.
The Pre-school staff with support from Mrs North the Headteacher, who is also the school’s SENDCO, as well as Bedford Borough’s Early Years SEND Team ensure that we meet each child’s individual needs.

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.
