Chesswood School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. This policy is designed to ensure that safer recruitment practices and procedures are embedded, in line with national statutory guidance, to support this. The policy complies with guidance outlined in ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education 2104’ and ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children 2013’.
This policy is an essential element in creating and maintaining a safe and supportive environment for all children and staff within the school and the wider school community. We aim to ensure both safe and fair recruitment and selection of staff by:
- Attracting the best possible candidates to vacancies
- Ensuring that the recruitment process is fair and consistent for all
- Undertaking thorough checks to deter identify and reject candidates who are unsuitable work with children.
The procedures outlined within this policy are adhered to fully at all times
