St. Andrew's Girton

Putting the community at the heart of the church.

Safeguarding

This parish recognizes that the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults is paramount and that we have a duty of care when they are in our charge. Furthermore this is the responsibility of all church members.

We will do everything that we can to provide a safe and caring environment whilst they attend our activities.

We will:

  • Treat all children, young people and vulnerable adults with respect and celebrate their achievements
  • Recruit and select all those working with children, young people and vulnerable adults on our behalf in accordance with Diocesan Safer Recruitment procedures
  • Provide a code of conduct for all staff to include the assessment of risk for key roles when working with children, young people and vulnerable adults
  • Respond to concerns and allegations without delay in accordance with Diocesan Safeguarding procedure

The PCC has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website and the Diocese of Ely's website.
