Bodiam houses pupils from Year 7 through to Year 8. We strive to create a friendly, safe and nurturing environment by encouraging cooperation, respect and tolerance to each other and all members of the Muntham House School Community.
The accommodation consists of a large common room, a fully fitted kitchen/dining area, two sets of showers and toilets and 5 double rooms and 1 larger room which can accommodate up to 4 pupils. All pupils are encouraged to personalise their own areas and to take responsibility for keeping it clean and tidy. We encourage our pupils to help plan and prepare the evening meals and help with the daily chores on floor. These range from helping with the laundry, helping to cook or doing the washing up.
All our activities are geared towards aiding our pupils to gain success in building relationships, confidence and social/independence skills as well as using their time constructively and having fun.
Activities include swimming, biking, football and cooking club to name but a few. We also have extensive grounds which include a sports hall, playing fields, fishing pond, bike track and wooded areas for adventure play.
The leisure curriculum also focuses heavily on independence skills and appropriate behaviour. The floor has daily routines which have to be followed and firm behavioural boundaries. The school challenges anti-social behaviour which is not tolerated within our community.
There are 3 staff working at any one time. The staff are here to advocate for the pupils, to liaise closely with parents/carers, and any external agencies to ensure the individual needs of the pupils are met.
We provide a safe and caring environment, by modelling good behaviour and forging positive and transparent relationships working on the social and emotional challenges which our pupils may encounter.
