    Criminal Convictions – Guidance

    Candidates with a criminal conviction should refer to our Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy and our Policy on Recruitment of Ex-Offenders which may be found on our website: Policy Statements

    It is an offence to apply for this role if you have been barred from engaging in regulated activity relevant to children.

    If you are shortlisted for interview, we will issue a Self-declaration Disclosure form which must be completed and brought with you to the interview.

    You will be required to give details of any convictions which are not ‘spent’. In addition, you will be required to disclose any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings that are not ’protected’ as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013 and 2020) by S.I. 2013/1198.

    This will not necessarily bar you from applying but failure to disclose may lead to later dismissal dependent on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of your offences.

    Do you have the right to work in the UK?
    NOTE: We will require proof of this right before an offer of employment can be confirmed.
