afeguarding FACCTS is an organisation made up of volunteers and paid staff.We believe that all human beings are of equal worth in the sight of God and aim to follow Biblical principles in all that we do. Therefore:
We commit ourselves to the nurture, protection, and general welfare of all, especially children at risk of harm. In so doing, we will work, in partnership, as appropriate, with churches, schools, statutory agencies and other organisations.
It is the responsibility of each one of us to protect children from all forms of abuse and to report any disclosures of abuse in addition to suspicions or concerns.
In order to achieve this, we are committed to supporting, resourcing and training those who work with children.We will follow appropriate recruitment practice for employees and volunteersand will provide appropriate supervision, recognise mutual accountability and commit to a regular review of our safeguarding policy, procedures and practices.
FACCTS has adopted the above principles; all volunteers and staff are presented with a copy and expected to follow the procedures and guidelines as set out in this document. Should a schoolsworker or volunteer need to report a safeguarding concern, they are to use this form:
