Safeguarding Policy

The safety and wellbeing of children, young people and vulnerable adults and those who work with them is of paramount importance.  The Parochial Church Council is committed to the safeguarding, care and welfare of these groups within our Church community.  We follow the Bath and Wells Diocese Safeguarding Policy and Procedures and all those who work (voluntary and paid) with these groups have enhanced checks and clearances obtained through the national Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) process.

Further information on this may be obtained from our Appointed Safeguarding Officer – Online form
