Aims and philosophy

Muntham House School is a safe, caring and positive environment dedicated to supporting individual needs and seeking effective change in order to send children and young people forward into society. The school uses the national curriculum format and all of the national programmes for learning, tailoring these to be most beneficial to the way our young people learn and develop. As a special school our vision is to support and care for young people and their pastoral needs. The school has a full time therapy department and the young people are specifically and individually supported by by qualified and experienced staff throughout their placement. This helps ensure all pupils achieve outstanding outcomes.

Staff qualification and selection

As a non-maintained school Muntham follows the same practices as maintained schools and services. We have however an enhanced training programme which enables our staff to benefit from advanced research and training in SEND. All staff training is funded by the school and all staff are expected to have the minimum requirements in their field before they arrive at Muntham, with the exception of Care Staff who must have a level three qualification within 12 months of appointment. Our staff are highly qualified and experienced, most of our senior teachers for instance have Masters level qualifications. Excellent staff to pupil ratios exist ensuring pupils are fully supported in Education and Care.
