At Babington House we are passionate about and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and visitors to share this commitment. 

We believe that our students have the right to learn in a happy, caring and safe environment, and this includes the right to protection from all types of abuse.  

Babington House recognises that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and all staff receive regular training; they are alert for signs of any child or young person in distress and are confident about applying safeguarding processes. 

We teach our children how to keep safe both inside and outside of the school community.  Students are taught through the wider curriculum, PSHE (Personal, Social, Healthy, Economic) and RSE (Relationships & Sex Education), how to stay safe at all times, including staying safe online and the dangers of cyber-bullying. Particular attention is given to school practices to help children to adjust their behaviours in order to reduce risks and build resilience.

We are fully committed to ensuring that consistent effective safeguarding procedures are in place to support families, children and staff at school and we have robust safeguarding policies in place which underpin our values and practice, shared by every member of our school staff.

We take a zero-tolerance approach to any form of bullying and/or abuse. We do not believe in accepting the notion of ‘banter’, ‘just having a laugh’, ‘part of growing up’ or ‘boys being boys’ as this can lead to a culture of unacceptable behaviours, and an unsafe environment for children.

We are very proud of our safeguarding practices at Babington House, and we ensure our child centred approach keeps everyone safe and healthy and protected from harm. 

At Babington House School we follow strict procedures for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children. If you have any concerns regarding the welfare/safety of a child please contact one of the Designated Safeguarding team on the contact details below.
