The DLP will produce an annual report on Standards 2, 3 and 4. Each of these standards contains a list of indicators, which give details of the steps that a Church organisation needs to take to meet the standard, and advises on ways to provide evidence that the standard has been met.


  1. The DLP, or a person appointed by the Bishop, will analyse all allegations and case files that have been reported within the year, using S4.46 as a guide.
  2. An annual report is prepared for the Bishop, with a review of compliance and recommendations for further action and improvement.
  3. Recommendations for change are incorporated into the three-year child   safeguarding plan, if appropriate.
  4. All documents produced will be in compliance with data protection requirements.
