Here at St Christophers and St Patricks we are committed to the care, wellbeing and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults. The role of Safeguarding seeks to ensure children, young people and vulnerable adults are provided with the fundamental right to be kept safe and respected. This right is held sacred in our Gospel, international and local laws and within our Church policy and practice.
