Statement of Safeguarding Principles
This statement applies to all staff, including senior managers and the board of trustees (SPS Council), paid staff, volunteers, agency staff, students or anyone working on behalf of Liberal Judaism (hereafter referred to as LJ), including staff and volunteers of Southgate Progressive Synagogue (hereafter referred to as SPS).
The purpose of the SPS safeguarding guidance and procedures is to protect all children, young people and vulnerable persons who receive our services.
SPS believes that no person should ever experience abuse of any kind. We have a responsibility to promote the welfare of all children, young people, and vulnerable persons to keep them safe. We are committed to practice in a way that protects them.
We recognise that:
- The welfare of the child/young person/vulnerable person is paramount.
- All persons, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation, or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse.
- Working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers, vulnerable persons, and other agencies is essential in promoting everybody’s welfare.
Our safeguarding guidance and procedures are to be followed by the board of trustees (SPS Council), paid staff, volunteers, agency staff, students or anyone working on behalf of SPS at all times.
