Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, so whilst the Local Authority remains the statutory body responsible for safeguarding, alongside multi-academy trusts and school governing bodies, the Board of Education will support school staff, parents/carers and members of the parish if they are worried that a child may not be safe. We will work in partnership with all agencies as necessary. 
In the first instance you should follow the safeguarding policy of the school or parish dependent on your context. However please do contact us if you feel you require help or advice. By working together, we are helping to protect all children and young people.

Safeguarding contact for Churches

Safeguarding concerns or questions in relation to the Church community should be referred to the Diocesan Safeguarding Officer.
