Useful Forms & Documents

We know how it is…you go to arrange a trip, sleepover or residential and have to make up forms all the time…so here we have some forms for you to download, ammend and use within your work.

We also have some forms which you can use within your Safeguarding/ Child Protection policy regarding the use of Photos, videos, text messages, e-mails and instant messaging services. We hope you find these useful

You can download the forms as Microsoft Word Documents or PDF’s. You need Adobe Reader for PDF’s

GDPR
GDPR (New data protection laws) come into play in May 2018 and will have an impact on consent forms as you now need explicit consent (not a ‘tick to opt out’). The Church of England’s Parish Resources site has some great guidelines on this. You can find this information here. We have now updated the forms below to comply to this but you will need to make tweaks to them for your organisation in order to make sure they comply with your own policies and procedures.

For consent forms and advice around social media you can also check your local Diocesan (if you’re Church of England) website as they often have lots of great resource under the safeguarding section.
