Supporting Information


Please give the names of two referees.  One of your referees must be your present/last employer.  If you have not been previously employed, then Head Teacher/Lecturers, Employment  Advisors, etc. are acceptable.  If you are not currently working with children, but have done so in the past, one referee must be from the employer by whom you were most recently employed to work with children. In accordance with ‘Safer Recruitment in Education’ guidelines, this referee will be asked about any disciplinary offences related to children, including any for which the penalty is time expired.

Please note that it is our policy for this particular post to take up references prior to interview, and that we reserve the right to approach any of your current and/or previous employers for a reference.  Friends and relatives are not acceptable as referees.  References will only be taken up if we are seriously considering your application.

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Checks

Do you have a DBS Enhanced Certificate for your current employment? *
During the interview proceedure we require three orginal documents of identification such as a passport, driving license and utility bill (no more than three months old). 

Protection of Children:

Disclosure of Criminal Background
The post for which you are applying involves substantial opportunity for access to children. It is therefore exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. You are, therefore, required to declare any convictions or cautions you may have, even if they would otherwise be regarded as ‘SPENT’ under this Act. The information you give will be treated in confidence and will only be taken into account in relation to an application where the exemption applies.

The disclosure of a criminal record will not debar you from an appointment unless it is considered that the conviction renders you unsuitable for appointment. In making this decision, the nature of the offence, how long ago, what age you were when it was committed, and any other factors which may be relevant, will be considered. Failure to declare a conviction may, however, disqualify you from appointment, or result in instant dismissal if the discrepancy comes to light.

The school is entitled, under arrangements introduced for the protection of children, to check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) for the existence and content of any criminal record of the successful applicant. If you are selected for the post for which you are applying, you will be required to have a DBS check.

Any information received from the DBS will be kept in strict confidence and will be destroyed immediately the selection and checking process is completed. Information supplied may be used for registered purposes under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1984.
Do you have any convictions to declare? If you answer 'Yes', please send us details of offence(s), dates and sentences in a sealed envelopes marked confidential. *
