Safeguarding | St George's Church

On Sunday 6th December the service for the second Sunday in Advent will be in church at 10.45. We are asked to join the rest of the Church as we continue to pray about the effects of Covid 19. We hope to be able to worship in church again throughout Advent and Christmas on Sundays at 10.45am. Please read the information carefully so that you know what special arrangements during this time. We are working very hard to keep everyone 'Covid safe'

Children and Young People

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 and young people safe.
