Safeguarding at BBEC

Our first priority is to keep young people safe.

Our Safeguarding Principles

  • We recognise that all students are individuals and have a fully inclusive school where everyone is welcome.
  • The welfare of the child is central to everything we do at BBEC.
  • All staff have a responsibility to act on any suspicion or disclosure that may suggest a child is at risk of harm
  • Pupils and staff involved in child protection issues will receive appropriate support

If you need support with a wellbeing / child protection issue, or as a parent / carer you have a concern about a young person in school, please contact reception and ask to speak to a member of our Designated Safeguarding Team.
