Commitment to the safeguarding of children and young people

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

You will be expected to report any concerns about the safeguarding of children and/or young people in accordance with the 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 or young people gives cause for concern, the agreed child protection procedures will be followed alongside the MAT’s disciplinary procedure.

References will be sought prior to interview 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) and Social Media 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.

Any job offer will be conditional on the satisfactory completion of the necessary pre-employment checks.

Only applicants who have been shortlisted will be asked for a self-declaration of their criminal record or information that would make them unsuitable for the position.

Any convictions that are self-disclosed or listed on a DBS check will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

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