Safeguarding Policy for Catechesis in Non School Settings

Safeguarding Policy for Catechesis in Non School settings 31.5.21 

Please read policy document for parishes  looking for guidance around the safeguarding  of children who attend catechesis classes outside of the school environment.

This would be very relevant for children who do not attend catholic schools but who desire to prepare for the sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation. It would also apply to any form of catechesis that may be delivered in a parish by non-parish catechists.

A working group led by Garry Kehoe worked on this

It is intended to review this policy after twelve months so as to ensure any suggestions from parishes are taken on board. As parish representatives, you should make sure that if such classes are taking place in your parish.
