The Parishes of Great Ayton & Newton under Roseberry



Parish Safeguarding Report for 2018

2018 has seen us rationalise the safeguarding processes in our church, which are, of course, an essential and vital aspect of our Christian mission with the huge variety of people with whom the PCC and church organisations work. 


As such, all member of the PCC and relevant organisations are now DBS checked and the record of this and other training is available in digital form for our records.

PCC members, the vast majority of Church Visitors and the leaders of the other church organisations have undertaken safeguarding training.  We have asked that leaders complete the C2 training which is delivered face-to-face by the Diocese. Additionally, PCC members and Church Visitors have been asked to complete the online C0 and C1 courses details of which have been emailed out to individuals. This has gone well in terms of C0 certification and the C1 training is an ongoing process.


In 2019 I aim to raise the profile of safeguarding in Church with an updated visual display at the back of church.  I also plan to encourage the leaders of children's activities to complete the C0 and C1 online courses. I will have attended the C2 course myself by the time this report is with the AGM, in order to identify where risk assessments and other areas need pursuing in the next twelve months.
