Caldecott Primary School follows the Safer Recruitment Policy for all vacancies within the school. This policy has been developed to embed safer recruitment practices and procedures throughout the school and to support the creation of a safer culture by reinforcing the safeguarding and well-being of children and young people in our care. This policy complies with guidance outlined in “Keeping Children Safe in Education (April 2016)”.
The School is committed to safeguarding children and young people. All post holders in regulated activity are subject to appropriate vetting procedures and a satisfactory “Disclosure and Barring Service Enhanced check”. 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 nature of the role and information provided. Oxfordshire County Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults. We expect all employees, workers and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.
All staff at Caldecott School are expected to uphold and promote British Values.
As part of the application process, all candidates need access to the following:-
