Safeguarding

Safeguarding is about keeping people safe and about working with children and vulnerable adults in a respectful and safe way. Each year St Peter’s PCC  reviews its safeguarding policy. Download the  Wolvercote & Wytham Safeguarding Policy 2019_2020 policy.

We are here to listen and help if you are worried or upset about something that’s happening, or has happened to you or someone you know. See contacts below.

Oxford Diocese Safeguarding – Past Cases Review – deadline 2 March 2020

Our churches and church-related activities must be safe for all, with safeguarding policies and practices that promote a safer church.
We need to be certain that all known cases of concern about the behaviour of our clergy or church officers towards children and adults have been considered and dealt with appropriately.

Every church in the Diocese, including our own, is now undertaking a comprehensive review as part of the national Past Cases Review 2 (PCR2). You can find out more about PCR2 on the Diocese of Oxford website: oxford.anglican.org/pcr-2  If you have information or need to make a disclosure regarding church-related abuse, please make direct contact with the Safeguarding Team at the Diocese of Oxford on 01865 208290.

If you have lived experience of abuse from within the Church of England, you may prefer to call the dedicated telephone NSPCC helpline, which is independent of the Church. Call 0800 80 20 20

The NSPCC helpline is also available to anyone wishing to provide information or to raise concerns regarding abuse within the Church of England. The helpline is there for you whether you are reporting issues relating to children or adults or seeking to whistleblow about poor safeguarding practice. Your call is confidential, and your concerns will be taken seriously.

If you have any safeguarding concerns, please contact:
