Safeguarding Policy

  Posted on   by   No comments

At All Saints’ we do our utmost to ensure that everyone on site is kept safe.  All staff and volunteers working with children and vulnerable adults must undergo a safer recruitment process and an enhanced DBS disclosure.

We also expect them to be fully conversant with the safeguarding policy. As a church, we have adopted the Church of England’s safeguarding policy ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ which can be viewed here.
