In the heart of heighington and open to all

You are certain of a warm welcome at St Michael’s. Come

along to one of our services and worship God in a friendly and

inviting atmosphere. We have both Church of England and

Methodist members. The parish also has a second small

church, St Andrew’s, at Bolam. We are proud of our strong links

with Heighington CE Primary School.

If you come to a service at 9.30am on a Sunday or at 10am on a Thursday, please join us for tea or coffee and biscuits afterwards, with a pleasant chat, and also purchase items from the Traidcraft stall or bookshelf.
The recently refurbished church tower was originally a watch-tower and signal station but now provides a reference point, representing peace of a different sort. People have worshipped here for centuries St Michael’s has stood since Norman times and today Christians are working out what it means to be followers of Jesus Christ in our own times too. Our church is the centre of the village, and as a congregation we seek to be identified with the community of which we are a part.

Heighington St Michael Safeguarding Policy At Heighington St Michael Parish (which includes the chapel at ease of St Andrew’s Bolam) we recognise that the few who are determined to harm children or adults, deliberately seek out groups or organisations where they can meet children or other vulnerable people. The Church is particularly vulnerable to these people. Creating and maintaining a safeguarding culture will discourage them from becoming involved for the wrong reasons and make it difficult for them to harm or abuse children or adults if they do. This Parish has formally adopted and implemented the House of Bishops Policy and this policy should be read in conjunction with that document and supporting guidance. The PCC will have a designated Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO) to work with the incumbent and PCC. The PCC will also have a DBS administrator for church officers who work with children or vulnerable adults. These roles may be combined if appropriate. The PSO and DBS administrator will be supported, trained and given a copy of the parish safeguarding policy and procedures. All members of the Parochial Church Council will be DBS checked and receive basic training in Safeguarding and all Churchwardens in addition to DBS checking will receive enhanced training. The PCC will: o Create an environment, which is welcoming and respectful and enables safeguarding concerns to be raised and responded to openly, promptly and consistently; o Have a procedure in place to deal promptly with safeguarding allegations or suspicions of abuse in accordance with the relevant policy and practice guidance and in consultation with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser; o Report all safeguarding concerns or allegations against church officers to the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser; o Ensure that known offenders or others who may pose a risk to children and/or vulnerable adults are effectively managed and monitored in consultation with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser; o Comply with all data protection legislation especially in regard to storing information about the ‘church workforce’. Including volunteers and any safeguarding records; o Ensure that an “activity risk assessment” is completed and reviewed regularly for each activity, which is associated with either children or vulnerable adults, and run in the name of the Church. Safer Recruitment, Support and Training: We will ensure that all church officers who work with children, young people and/or vulnerable adults are: o recruited following the House of Bishops’ Safer Recruitment practice guidance; o DBS checked in accordance with Diocesan Policy o aware of and work to House of Bishops’ safeguarding guidance (includes both policies and practice guidance); o attend diocesan safeguarding training at least every three years; The PCC will provide appropriate insurance to cover for all activities undertaken in the name of the PCC which involve children and vulnerable adults; Continued on page 2
