St James is committed to keeping children safe at all times.

Each year the PCC renews its commitment to Safeguarding by renewing the policy and encouraging training.

The key policy documents can be found on the Diocesan Web-site.


We have a designated Safeguarding officer , Mandy Baker.

You can bring her any concerns you have about children and young people connected to the church.


To apply for a DBS clearance so that you can work with our children and young people you need to talk with Parvin Stewart or contact her by email at: and afterwards go the Church Office to complete the necessary forms. Thank you.
