St Peter's Safeguarding Statement
Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This job involves working with children and is therefore subject to an advanced disclosure check through the confidential process administered by the Disclosure Baring Service. A conviction may not exclude candidates from the job, but it will be considered as part of the recruitment process.
Disclosure Barring Service Criminal Convictions
As part of the recruitment process to work with children you will be required to provide information on all convictions and reprimands, spent or not.
Pre Employment Checks
These include; Childcare Disqualification (where applicable), qualifications (where applicable) medical fitness, overseas declaration, identity and right to work checks. An online search will also be carried out as part of due diligence on all short-listed candidates. All applicants are required to provide two suitable references, with one from their most recent employer.
Right to Work
Under Section 15 of the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act of 2006 it is a criminal offence to employ a person aged 16 or over who is subject to immigration control. It is therefore necessary for our school to establish the entitlement to work in the UK for all applicants.
Our schools are committed to equal opportunities in employment and we positively welcome your application irrespective of your race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, sex, marital status, disability, religion, political belief, socio-economic background, parental status, trade union membership, sexual orientation and age.
