The post for which you are applying gives substantial access to children. Castle Wood is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and all staff working with children are expected to share a commitment to this.

You will be expected to report any concerns about safeguarding in accordance with the school's agreed procedures.

Successful applicants will be required, as part of their role, to attend regular safeguarding training relevant to the role.

If your conduct in relation to the safeguarding of children gives cause for concern, the agreed child protection procedures will be followed alongside the school's disciplinary procedure.

References will be sought and we will ask about your performance and conduct, including any disciplinary action taken and/or allegations/issues relating to children and young people in order that your suitability to work with children/young people can be assessed.

Employment is conditional upon the results of an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (with a barred list check) which will indicate your suitability to work with children.

Applications for teaching roles will involve a check of the Teaching Council’s Prohibition List, to ensure they are not subject to a prohibition order issued by the Secretary of State.

All interviews will be conducted by one of our safer recruitment trained leaders.
