Safeguarding Statement

The Trust is committed to safeguarding children and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.

A ‘prohibition from teaching’ check will be completed for all shortlisted teaching candidates including those applying for a student facing role, or other work deemed directly involved with pupils where it is indicated that they have qualified teacher status or have previously worked as a teacher. We will also consider carrying out an online search as part of due diligence on shortlisted candidates as recommended by KCSiE.

All successful candidates will be subject to a Disclosure & Barring Service check along with other relevant employment checks.

It is a criminal offence to apply for or accept a position (paid or unpaid) working with children if you are excluded from such work by virtue of a court order or exclusion by the DBS. Although a criminal record involving offences against children is likely to debar you from appointment to this type of post, the existence of other criminal convictions will not necessarily be a bar to employment.

The Trust aims to recruit and retain staff by:

  • Ensuring they have a fair and reasonable workload
  • Providing high quality training and professional development opportunities that meet the needs of individual staff members
