Safeguarding and Child Protection | St George's Church

On Sunday 29th November the service for Advent Sunday will be streamed on to St George's Facebook page at 10.45. The order of service can be found on the right hand bar of the 'What's on page' of this website. We are asked to join the rest of the Church to pray about Covid 19. There is a sheet of suggestions for November on the 'Time for Prayer' page of this website. More information about Sunday services when we can open again can be found lower down this Home page. Please read the information carefully so that you know what special arrangements we need to make for worship outside as well as inside the building. We are working very hard to keep everyone 'Covid safe'

Safeguarding and Child Protection

Safeguarding children and Vulnerable Adults

Children

At St George's Church we enjoy working with our Children and Young people and we take our responsibilities to care for them very seriously. All adults working with children and young people have been cleared through the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) and there is training to ensure that everyone understands their responsibility when they are working with children. We follow diocesan guidelines about ratios of adults to children and other health and safety factors.

The PCC reviews the Child Protection policy annually. The support and guidance from the Diocese ensures that we are up to date and vigilant to keep all our children safe.

If anyone has any concerns about a child or young person at St George's Lupset they should not hesitate to speak to St George's Child Protection Officer - Freda Jackson or the Vicar - Rev'd Martine Crabtree.

On this page you can find the Church policy for Child Protection and the documents needed to ensure children are well looked after when taking part in church activities.
