Our community commits itself to transparency of thought, word and deed.
St Chad’s is committed to Safeguarding and has adopted the National and Diocesan Safeguarding Policies.
The Safeguarding Co-ordinator is Martha McKirdy who can be contacted on [email protected]
We must also accept collective ownership of Safeguarding.
The church safeguarding policy can be found here.
All members of the PCC are requested to complete some online Church of England safeguarding training. You are asked to complete both the basic and the foundation training. Anyone else is welcome to do the same. You will need to create an account. Each one takes about an hour and a bit in total, though you can stop and pick up another time. It is quite a good eye-opener. Once you have received the Certificate of Completion please forward the certificate to the church office for filing – send it to [email protected]
Please would members of the congregation having a current DBS form for the church inform the Safeguarding Co-ordinator?
