Safeguarding Policy


We at Grosvenor Church Barnstaple are committed to the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults and we work hard to ensure their wellbeing.

All our children’s leaders and crèche workers have full DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks (formerly known as CRB checks).



At the start of each Sunday morning we ask that you register your school-aged child and we in return will issue you with a numbered card. As you collect your child at the end of the service we will only release your child in exchange for the numbered card.



As you take your pre-school child into our crèche area on Sunday, we ask you to sign them in with any dietary needs and we give you a numbered card. Your child can then only leave the room if exchanged for the card.
