Safeguarding Countdown to Christmas 2021 

C to C 1




Just a few reminders for when planning your Christmas activities:

C to C 2
Please do a risk assessment for all church led activities.  The more popular Christmas activities have risk assessment templates on the district website for your ease:
https://www.behdistrict.org.uk/Groups/191708/BEH_District/Safeguarding/Safeguarding.aspx


C to C 3Please remember that we remain in a pandemic so your activities, and in turn your risk assessment should reflect this.  If you are unsure of what you should or shouldn't do, please visit:

C to C 4If you intend having a Father Christmas at any point, please ensure the safer recruitment process is followed and a risk assessment completed.  It would also be helpful if you could advise the District Safeguarding team at: safeguarding@behdistrict.org.uk.

C to C 5
All party foods must be labelled to ensure allergy sufferers, especially children, are aware of what is in the food items.


Above all, plan ahead to ensure all who attend these activities are safe.

Best wishes for a happy and peaceful Christmas.
