CODE OF CONDUCT

All of us with a role in the Sehion Ministry have a duty to protect children and adults in vulnerable circumstances. We also have a duty to keep ourselves safe. By understanding and sticking to the following rules we should be able to keep everyone safe as possible. 

  1. If you have, or hope to take on role with children and adults in vulnerable situation, please contact Sehion Safeguarding Person i.e. TILLY or THERESA. We will provide you with application forms and make sure you are up to date with safeguarding arrangements within Sehion UK ministry.
  2. No one should ever be left alone with children, if you plan any activity you should ensure that there are adults in reserve to cover any shortfall. Without two approved adults being present, the activity be postponed.
  3. If you intend to transport children in your own car there must be a second adult in the car with you at all times. If this is likely to be a regular arrangement check with your insurer.
  4. Greetings can be difficult with children a high five or similar hand contact away from you body works well.
  5. Young children may seek physical contact but it is important that any physical contact must be in the public, age appropriate and at the instigation of the child. 
  6. If you find yourself isolated with a child or if there has been any physical contact that could be interpreted as inappropriate you must take factual record of what happened and inform the safeguarding represantives for Sehion UK or Birmingham Safeguarding Team at Cathedral House immediately.
  7. When arranging all activities for our children, a risk assessment should be undertaken and completed in writing at all times, consent forms completed and permission obtained for any photographic images to be made publicly available.
  8. Youth groups should have policies in place regarding the management of behaviour.
  9. If you need to communicate with children via social media you must not use your equipment/account etc but one that is set up by Sehion UK Ministry.
  10. Parents must consent to this and have an oversight 

The Dignity and Sanctity of every human life is a gift from God.

We abhor the abuse to which some children and vulnerable adults are subjected.

We endeavour to follow the policies as agreed by the Safeguarding policies and Procedures of the Roman Catholic Diocese in England and Wales. We will strive to ensure that children and young adults are kept safe from any form of harm.
