St Mary’s is committed to safeguarding children, young people, victims/survivors of domestic abuse, and vulnerable adults. The PCC has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding which may be found on the Church of England’s website.

Safeguarding issues can be raised with the Rector, any staff member, or our Parish Safeguarding Officers Catherine de Mars and Aaron Webb, who may be contacted via the church office (01256 464249) or by email
