16th January 2020 — Congratulations to Babington House School Early Years staff and children for achieving their Healthy Early Years London Bronze Award. Tim Lello, Headmaster, said, “I am thrilled we have achieved this prestigious award which reflects our commitment and enthusiasm for healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle, which are vitally important lessons for life.”

Getting a good start in life, building emotional resilience and getting maximum benefit from education are the most important markers for good health and wellbeing throughout life. Early Years settings can lay the foundations for lifelong health and wellbeing as they help children prepare for school.

The aim of HEYL is to help reduce health inequalities by giving young children a healthy start. Under the programme, participating early years settings can achieve awards by demonstrating best practice across themes that include healthy eating, oral and physical health and early cognitive development. HEYL complements and enhances the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage framework.

About Babington House School

Babington House School is an independent co-educational day school from 3 to 18 years, situated in a beautiful group of buildings on Grange Drive in Chislehurst, near Bromley.The boys and girls receive first class education in a supportive and academic environment. 

At Babington House, “pupils throughout the school display excellent attitudes to learning that are evident in all that they do, and an atmosphere of happy endeavour permeates school life”, independent school inspectors find.

In November 2016, Babington House School had an Educational Quality and Compliance Inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

The school received the highest grade possible in all categories and across every age group which, under the new Inspection Framework, is described as 'Excellent'.   This is very rare indeed particularly for an all through school from 3 to 18 years.  Babington could not have done better and such a result from a more robust inspection framework is a remarkable achievement for the school community.  

Key Findings:
Quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements – Excellent
Quality of the pupils’ personal development – Excellent

“Pupils are confident, independent learners and thinkers with high personal values and an awareness of their responsibilities in the outside world, fully reflecting the school’s aims.  They contribute fully to the happy, relaxed and close-knit community.”
