Safeguarding and Child Protection
Safeguarding children and Vulnerable Adults
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.
We will also meet vulnerable adults in many situations. St George's church follows diocesan for working with Vulnerable Adults and our policy is found on this page. If you have any concerns about the care of a particular adult please contact Freda Jackson or Rev'd Martine Crabtree who will listen to your concerns and take action as appropriate .
