The parish of Taplow is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). We have adopted the Diocese of Oxford Model Parish Safeguarding Policy which we review annually (May). The Diocese of Oxford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

The last annual review of our policy took place at the PCC meeting on Tuesday 21st May.

Our Safeguarding Officer is Jacqueline Ratcliff who can be contacted on 01628 789915 or emailed on
