The protection of our pupils from abuse is the responsibility of all staff within our schools, superseding any other considerations.

Please be advised that, again in line with ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’, shortlisted candidates (who wish to accept an invite to interview) will be required to submit, prior to their interview, a self-declaration of their criminal record or information that would make them unsuitable to work with children.
