The Parish of St Mary’s and Emmanuel, Chadwell St Mary is committed to high standards in the safeguarding and care of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Our Safeguarding Officer is Ann Cooper, who can be contacted via and our Parish Safeguarding Policy can be read in full here.

Our Safeguarding policy is reviewed annually to ensure that the policy is up-to-date with best practice and that we as a church are implementing the policy correctly.

Our Safeguarding Policy is an implemented version of the Safeguarding Policy for Church of England. This policy was devised by Safeguarding Professionals, so we can be confident that our policy here is thorough and appropriate for our church community.

Our Safeguarding Policy are available in various locations. These are shown below.

  • In a box file at the back of church labelled ‘Safeguarding’. This is near where the service booklets are kept.

If you have any questions about our Safeguarding, please either speak to Ann Cooper or contact Mike Walton here.
