Attention!! Anyone working with children!! The new and improved Child Protection Policy (CPP) is here! CPP has a new annual renewal timeline and it is all automated and online.
The new policy is now effective September to September of each year. It is no longer based on calendar year. Starting this month any one working with children must complete the online training and review the new CPP on Pender’s website. You can find it under the “Resources” tab, then click policies and forms. The Application and Annual Renewal Form (AAR) is automated and can be submitted from the website. No more paper forms!! No more training forms either because each person is required to review the online training each year.
If you do not have access to Pender’s website, a hard copy of the CPP and the AAR can be found in the Narthex and can be completed manually and returned to the tray marked CPP form. If you are currently working with children, you will need to have your Application and Annual Renewal Form completed by October 1 to continue working with children. Your application is good until September of the following year.
