Here at St Mark's we take safeguarding very seriously.

Our safeguarding coordinator is Mrs Fiona Lightwood.

She can be contacted via the parish office on 01934 525 922.

Fiona is part of a parish-wide safeguarding team which meets throughout the year to share good practice.

This team also plan a month-long, parish-wide safeguarding focus once a year, to remind our congregations of the importance of a strong safeguarding culture.

Safeguarding in the church community – making our churches safe for children, young people and vulnerable adults – is everyone’s responsibility.

St Mark's follows the safeguarding policies of the Diocese of Bath and Wells (of which we are a part.)

We are supported by the diocesan safeguarding team, who provide us with training and advice.
