Year 11 Parents / Carers,  Please note that Muntham House School will not be opening for exam results collection this year.

This is due to the continuing COVID-19 situation and the need to reduce infection and maintain social distance etc.

This is a shame as it's always lovely to see the pupils get their well-earned results.  However, I know how hard our pupils have worked towards their GCSE examinations.

This year we will therefore be sending these out via email and also posting the results 1st class on the morning of 20th August 2020.

Ofsted Report March 2020

Prevent came into Muntham House School on Monday morning to hold a training session for Staff and they also kindly came in again on Tuesday and held an assembly for our pupils.

They gave great insight into the prevention of radicalisation and violent extremism involving safeguarding vulnerable individuals from being radicalised into extremist behaviour and attitudes. Anyone from any area, ethnic group, socio-economic background, age group, gender can be in a vulnerable place for a variety of reasons and so be susceptible to radicalisation. This can happen in small villages as well as in big cities in any part of the country and the reach of the online world can be appealing for people when at their most isolated and vulnerable. 

As a school we have a part to play in preventing radicalisation and violent extremism. This is why the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a Public Duty on all schools and local authorities to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.

The staff found the talk extremely beneficial and I know that all pupils came away with a much greater understanding.

The Pre Primary Classroom is now open at Muntham House School which is a truly amazing facility. A state of the art building has been created inside the secret garden which provides a place for tranquillity where pupils can re-engage with learning both inside and outside the classroom. The bespoke curriculum enables our pupils to overcome barriers, which may be present as a result of suffering developmental trauma, adverse childhood experiences or other factors, and empower them to enjoy education again and access the National Curriculum through topics and themes interweaved in to the curriculum.

Our Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) curriculum is underpinned by core values championing the need to attend to the wellbeing of our pupils first. The curriculum will enable pupils to socialise, communicate, collaborate and manage their relationships positively. This in turn will enable them to develop the skills necessary to learn; Resilience, Relationships, Risk Taking, Resourcefulness and Reflection. A wonderful full range of early years and KS1 resources are available for all pupils in Pre Primary which helps motivate pupils and enables them to succeed. A well qualified and experienced staff team provide outstanding levels of support and care to all pupils across Pre Primary.

We have combined our years of experience, knowledge and consultation with experts in the field of education, mental health and wellbeing to create a specialist curriculum and assessment framework which we truly believe reflects the needs of our pupils and ensures that we are able to offer pupils life changing opportunities and outcomes which will help pupils learn the fundamental aspects of education so that they can develop socially, emotional and academically.
