Ladygrove Park Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. All staff are expected to share this commitment and take on this responsibility. The successful candidate will be required to undertake all necessary safer recruitment checks, including an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check. All school based jobs are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, as the work brings employees into contact with children. Applicants for the job must, therefore, disclose all spent and unspent convictions. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the information provided. It is an offence to apply for the role, if an applicant is barred from engaging in regulated activity relevant to children. Ref. Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy on the school website. Ladygrove Park Primary School is an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from a range of backgrounds to represent diversity in line with our schools’ community. Satisfactory DBS checks and references satisfactory to the school are conditional to appointment.
