We take the subject of safeguarding of children and adults at risk seriously at St Martin’s. We adhere to the safeguarding policy of the Diocese of Coventry which has been prepared in accordance with the national policies of the Church Of England as approved by the House of Bishops.
Every child or adult can be hurt, put at risk of harm or abused in other ways. The actions we must take to promote their welfare, and protect them from harm, are the responsibility of us all. Everyone who comes into contact with adults at risk or children has a role to play.
‘Looking the other way’ is not an option. Adopting and putting into practice the safeguarding policy of the Diocese of Coventry is essential for all involved in our church.
All our volunteers who have contact with children and adults at risk and our PCC members, have been DBS checked and have received the necessary training in Safeguarding measures.
