Bodiam houses boys from year 4 through to year 10. 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 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 with can accommodate up to 4 boys. All boys are encouraged to personalise their own areas and to take responsibility for keeping it clean and tidy. We encourage the boys to help plan and prepare the evening meals and help with the daily chores on floor. These range from taking the laundry down to helping cook or doing the washing up.
The Leisure Curriculum
All our activities are geared towards aiding our students 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.
The Staff Team
There are 4 staff who work on floor with 3 staff working at any one time. The staff are here to advocate for the students, to liaise closely with parents/carers, and any external agencies to ensure the individual needs of the students 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 students may encounter.
