Safer Recruitment

Lydiate Learning Trust - Safer Recruitment

Safer recruitment fits within the wider context of safeguarding children and promoting the welfare of children and keeping students safe in education.

Our Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share the same commitment.

Any offer of employment is conditional and is subject to a check with the Disclosure and Barring Service. The DBS helps employers make safer recruitment decisions and prevents unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups, including children. Further information about the Disclosure process can be found at www.disclosureandbarringservice.gov.uk.

Failure to declare on the application form or the Disclosure application any conviction (SPENT or UNSPENT), caution, reprimand, final warning or bind over, which is subsequently disclosed by the DBS, may result in summary dismissal.

  • Satisfactory completion of our pre-employment medical screening

Details of these conditions will be stipulated in the job offer letter shortly after you verbally accept the post.
