Policies & Procedures


As required by the Church of England, we in St Clement's Church follow the required policies and procedures to ensure a healthy and safe environment at all of our services, groups and activities. Probably the most important of these is our Safeguarding Policy especially where it relates to our interactions with young people and vulnerable adults.

Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults:

St. Clement’s Church takes its responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.

Our Safeguarding Policy is reviewed annually and the current version may be downloaded here: Policy page 1 and Policy page 2

If you have any Safeguarding questions or concerns you can contact our Parish Safeguarding Officer, Rev. Mo Willis, on 07470 502815 or email: office@stclementspoole.org.uk

Alternatively, you can contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser on 07500 664800 or email: heather.bland@salisbury.anglican.org

 Our other policies are presently not available on line but may be viewed at St Clement's Church Office.
