Our staff recruitment policies and practices are rigorous and comply with safe recruitment and selection requirements. We always pursue identity checks and qualification checks and we take up and scrutinise written references before employment. We require evidence of enhanced Disclosure and Barring Search (DBS) clearance before employing any staff, in addition to pursuing List 99 checks.
Our safer recruitment policy will be available shortly.
All staff and volunteers are required to provide evidence of enhanced DBS clearance. The Board of Proprietors are regularly updated about child protection, bullying and safeguarding policies and practices by the Executive Headteacher. It is the responsibility of every adult in this school to ensure that we maintain the highest level of awareness about possible unsafe practices and deal with any issues immediately and appropriately.
