Simple Quality Protects
The protection of children and vulnerable adults in our care remains an absolute priority. Our Safeguarding Officer is Mrs Sarah Lawrence assisted by Mrs Diana Kentish-Barnes. Currently, all those who act in a leadership role with children (e.g. Children’s' Church and Messy Church) are approved via the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service).
Each year the PCC reviews its Safeguarding Policy Statement for the Parish. A copy of this policy is displayed on the church and church hall notice boards.
A copy of the Child Protection Policy 'Protecting all God's Children - 4th Edition 2010' is held in the Church Office.
