Safeguarding at St Nicholas is not viewed as something which is done as a tick-box exercise or by a designated individual, but it is at the heart and soul of our theology and mission.

With this perspective, safeguarding policies and procedures should be approached, not with a spirit of fear or duty but rather with an appreciation that they are an external expression of Christ’s love for all people.

How to report a concern

If you are worried about a person or situation, it is always better to say something than do nothing. Report anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, even if it seems small.
