St Mark's is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk to worship and grow in Christ safely. This is done in a coordinated and supported manner and involves Church Safeguarding Officers, the Senior Pastoral Staff and the Diocesan Safeguarding Team. Concerns about children, young people and adults at risk will be diligently and promptly responded to according to our procedures, recognising the sensitivity it may hold for those involved.
The Parochial Church Council of this church adopted 'A Safe Church' on 9 November 2009 and last reviewed its safeguarding policies, procedures and practice in January 2019. Please find these below:
