Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children is our highest priority at Chapel Street Community Primary School – we work together to move beyond compliance to a culture of excellence in relation to safeguarding and this includes implementing robust Safer Recruitment practices, without exception.

Prior to appointment, all relevant and necessary safeguarding checks (including online checks of publicly available information for shortlisted candidates) will be undertaken and we would like to make clear that it is an offence to apply for this role if you are barred from engaging in regulated activity relevant to children. Successful applicants will be required to complete a DBS check, where they are engaged in regulated activity with children.

The job description and person specification for this post make clear the safeguarding requirements and responsibilities of the post.

As this post involves engaging in regulated activity relevant to children, it is exempt from the Rehabilitation of the Offenders Act (ROA) 1974 and the amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975, 2013 and 2020 and will require an Enhanced DBS Check prior to employment. If the role is exempt, certain spent convictions and cautions are ‘protected’, so they do not need to be disclosed, and if they are disclosed, we cannot take them into account. You can find further information about protected and filtered offences on this link. We would like to make clear that it is an offence to apply for any role that involves regulated activity if you are barred from engaging in regulated activity relevant to children.

You will find further information in relation to safeguarding at Chapel Street Community Primary School in the documents above.
