We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. As part of our commitment, we need to ensure that all potential employees satisfy our employment checks. Please note that where appropriate, shortlisted and/or potentially suitable applicants will be required to undertake further checks, including references, and will be required to provide a Disclosure from the DBS. Rehabilitation of Offenders Act We will treat applicants who have a criminal record fairly and will not discriminate because of a conviction or other information revealed. Possession of a criminal record will not automatically prevent applicants from working with us. As part of the recruitment process any information revealed regarding a criminal record will only be considered in light of its relevance to the post for which the candidate is applying. As you are applying for a post which is eligible for a DBS Disclosure, you are required to declare information on any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings, which would not be filtered in line with current guidance. Therefore, if you have received a conviction or caution, which would not be filtered in line with current guidance, you must provide details below (including any convictions in a court of law outside of Great Britain) and any prosecutions that you have pending. If there are none please write ‘none’.

We will make reasonable adjustments to help a person with a disability through the application and selection process and, if successful, to assist you in carrying out the duties of your job.
