Muntham House School was inspected by Ofsted on 14-16 February 2022.

The school received ‘Outstanding’ again for the overall experiences and progress of children and young people under the social care common inspection framework.  This is the third consecutive inspection in which the school has achieved Outstanding and is further evidence of what an excellent provision this school is.

The pupils were brilliant throughout the inspection, as always they were all a real credit to the school.    

Here are some examples of what Ofsted stated about the school:

‘Children benefit from a skilled and passionate workforce whose members clearly enjoy working at the school.’

‘Staff manage the accommodation expertly, providing safe spaces for children to flourish.’

‘Students speak enthusiastically about the wide range for enrichment activities available at the school.’

‘Children with complex emotional and behavioural issues on entry have achieved excellent outcomes, including admission to university, access to employment and highly successful transitions into adulthood.’

Muntham House School had a very unexpected emergency landing of a magnificent Virgin Hot Air Balloon.

Amazing how big these balloons are up close and the wonderful spectacle our local neighbours to see. We helped the balloon team collapse the balloon safely. This is the first time in the schools history we have ever had a hot air balloon on our school fields.

World Book Day is the biggest celebration of its kind. The aim of it is to celebrate authors, books, illustrators and - of course - reading! To help young people to do that, book tokens are given out at schools.

Muntham House School celebrated World Book Day, by the pupils coming in dressed as their favourite book character. All pupils were provided with a £2 voucher to purchase a book. Our Primary classes really enjoyed dressing up and fully enjoyed the day.

It has been great to see our pupils back enjoying school and making the most of the opportunities available to them. The staff team have continued to work hard to reconnect with the pupils and re-engage them with their learning in the classroom,  helping them settle back into the routines and rules of school once again.  Pupils and staff have appreciated being back at school and seeing their friends again.

We have maintained high levels of attendance, last week whole school attendance was 96% which is a higher percentage than the national average for mainstream schools.  It is so important after this past year considering how much pupils have missed, that all pupils attend school every day to catch up on their learning.

Pupils have welcomed our new goats Candy and Nora enjoying walking, grooming and caring for the goats.  The goats have had a positive impact on our pupils.  The school has also purchased eight hand reared chickens of various different breeds and varieties from a local West Sussex farm.   Pupils who are interested, will have the opportunity to collect eggs and feed the chickens and learn more about nature.

I hope that you all have a lovely break over half term and enjoy some good quality family time.  We all look forward to pupils returning to school on Tuesday 8th June.

Best wishes

All pupils and staff were encouraged to wear red to school for a small donation to Red Nose Day. Pupils had the opportunity to participate in different activities throughout the day. 

The pupils enjoyed the day and had great satisfaction in helping others, giving them a sense of worth and pride.  Well done to all for the amount of money raised. 

Red Nose Day donations help tackle important issues including homelessness, hunger, domestic abuse and mental health stigma, all of which have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

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.

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.
