Holy Rood Church takes its responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.
Our Parish Safeguarding Policy was re-adopted in the PCC meeting of 24th September 2020 and a new copy will be posted here when it is re-printed:
If you have any Safeguarding questions or concerns you can contact our Parish Safeguarding Officer:

Safeguarding Training - a 2021 update
Many of us in the parish undertook safeguarding training in or after April and May 2017. Everyone with any active role in Holy Rood is strongly encouraged to make sure you have done both your initial safeguarding training and also (when due) your 3-yearly refresher course.
The standard courses (Basic (C0) and / or Foundations (C1), as appropriate to your role) are found on the Church of England Training Portal at https://safeguardingtraining.cofeportal.org/ They can be completed online and it would be appreciated if you would please copy the completion certificate(s) by email to Chris, the Parish Safeguarding Officer so he can update your records.
Our Church clergy, ministers, lay pastoral assistants, and group leaders will all have done the Leadership C2 or C3 safeguarding course face to face with an approved Diocesan trainer. The booking for Leadership courses including their 3-yearly refresher courses (formerly C5), is done direct with Salisbury Diocese at https://www.salisbury.anglican.org/learning/courses/?department=Safeguarding
