We place the utmost importance on the safety of the groups that travel with us. The Château du Baffy is located in a quiet and safe location in the hamlet of Colombiers-sur-Seulles and has a full Safety Management System in place.
Our commitment to Health and Safety is inherent in everything we do, from our staff work environment and for all of our groups out on tour. We have rigorous procedures in place to ensure consistent standards are achieved and adhered to for all of our travelling guests.
Select School Tours is a member of the School Travel Forum (STF), a group of leading school tour operators who promote good practice and safety in school travel. As a full member of the STF, we adhere to a rigorous Code of Practice and Safety Management Standards which meet the requirement of DCSF guidelines and are externally verified each year by suitably qualified independent Health and Safety Professionals. A copy of our Safety Management System is available to download here.
