Communicating the Parish Safety Policy
All clergy and church workers are required to undertake refresher training in the child safe policies once every three years.
The Incumbent of the parish is responsible for ensuring that parish clergy and church workers are advised, at least annually about this policy.
This policy will be outlined to all new staff as part of the child safe training.
Children and their parents joining our program/s will receive information providing a link to this Policy www.newcastleanglican.org.au/safe-ministry/
Incumbents will ensure that information about ensuring the safety of people participating in parish life forms part of the parish teaching program each year.
Parishes must ensure that a copy of the Professional Standards Office & Kids Helpline contact poster is displayed in the parish. The Policy spells out where the poster should be displayed and other contact details for making a complaint here.
