Before becoming a Sunday School teacher in either Carmyle church or Kenmuir church, the teacher must first attend and pass all necessary Safeguarding courses available to rhem. All individuals who have contact with children in either of these churches have satisfied all authorities that they are fit and properly trained as Safeguarding individuals.

The Church of Scotland Safeguarding Service

Safeguarding is about preventing harm and abuse. And making a timely and appropriate response if it occurs.
Harm or abuse of children and adults at risk can happen anywhere – even in church communities. We have a duty to Ensure a Safe Church for All. This means protecting children and 'adults at risk'.
The Church aims to minimise the risk of harm occurring. If harm or abuse does occur, with appropriate support and training, it will be recognised and reported. If it occurs we will work with the Police and Social Work services if appropriate.
We provide a service for Church Councils, congregations and 70 CrossReach services.

The Church of Scotland Safeguarding Policy Statement 2010

The Church of Scotland has a deep concern for the wholeness and wellbeing of each individual. Through its Congregations, working together with the Safeguarding Service and statutory agencies, the Church seeks to safeguard the welfare of all people who come into contact with the Church and its services.
The Gospel proclaims that it’s the responsibility of everyone within the fellowship of the Church to prevent harm, be it physical, sexual or emotional, and we will always seek to reduce risk.
The Church’s commitment to safeguarding reminds us that God cares passionately about the welfare and wellbeing of all people.
