The Parochial Church Council (PCC) of Chadwell St Mary takes seriously its responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and vulnerable adults.

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 the Diocese of Chelmsford. The diocesan 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 and the Diocese of Chelmsford 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.
  • Our policy and the diocesan documents can also be found here.
  • The diocesan documents can also be found here.

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