Safeguarding | St George's Church

As we are in National Lockdown the services from St George's will be on line at 10.45 each Sunday and the church is closed for public worship until the situation improves. Service sheets are on 'Whats on' page of this website. The PCC will consider the situation and when to reopen for worship at their meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. A letter from the Wakefield Medical Officer of Health is in the information below. Please pray for our community and particularly those who are working to care for those who are ill and those who are providing vaccinations as well those suffering from the wide ranging effects of Covid 19. Keep safe and help each other to keep well.

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.

If you click on the links below you will find the Church of England policy for Child Protection and also the documents needed to ensure children and young people are well looked after when taking part in church activities.
