Child protection policy

As far as the safety of children is concerned, we are committed to doing the utmost to protect young people who are involved in any of our activities.

We follow strictly the Diocese of Sheffield Child Protection Policy to ensure all our processes are best practice.

In the unlikely event that you should see anything that concerns you, please do not hesitate to let us know. Even if your concern may seem trivial, we want to know. 

Please note that all of our children's leaders have ID badges, their pictures are also on the notice board at the back of church, if you are unsure about the validity of a leader, please ask.


St John's church in the parish of Deepcar and Stocksbridge takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously.
We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at
