Our Responsibility...

At St Peter & St Paul's we agree that “Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility” and we are committed to make our church safer for everyone – children and adults. We have pledged to follow the Church of England’s Safeguarding guidance "Promoting a Safer Church".


As Christians we are called to recognise and respect the individuality and dignity of all people. We have a special responsibility to safeguard both children and young people entrusted to our care, and all those adults in the who may be vulnerable. 

Our full Safeguarding Policy Statement can be found here
