12. Compulsory Declaration of any Convictions, Cautions or Reprimands, Warnings or Bind-overs

It is the school’s policy to require all applicants for employment to disclose any previous ‘unspent’ criminal convictions and any cautions which have not expired, or any pending prosecutions. In addition, the job you are applying for is exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (exceptions order 1975) which requires you to disclose all spent convictions and cautions except those which are ‘protected’ under Police Act 1997 – Part V and the amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013) and are not subject to disclosure to employers on DBS certificates and cannot be taken into account. Guidance on the filtering of “protected” cautions and convictions which do not need to be disclosed by a job applicant can be found on the Disclosure and Barring Service website.

If you are invited to interview you will be required to complete a “Disclosure of Criminal Record” form and bring the completed form to interview.

In accordance with the provisions of The Childcare Act 2006 and The Childcare (Disqualification) Regulations 2009 and Childcare (Early Years Provision Free of Charge) (Extended Entitlement) (Amendment) Regulations 2018, there is a requirement on some staff in educational settings to disclose relevant information. This requirement will apply to your application if the post you are applying for is in an Early Years setting with children (from birth until 1 September following a child’s fifth birthday) or Later Years childcare (children above reception age but who have not attained the age of 8) in nursery, primary or secondary school settings, or if you are directly concerned with the management of such childcare.

The information you give will be treated as strictly confidential. Disclosure of a conviction, caution, bind-over order, warning or reprimand will not automatically disqualify you from consideration. Any offence will only be taken into consideration if it is one which would make you unsuitable for the type of work you are applying for. However, offences relating to children may make you unsuitable since this is a “regulated position” under the Criminal Justice & Courts Services Act 2000.

13. Prohibition from Teaching

In accordance with the requirements of The School Staffing (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013, any future appointment is subject to a check with the Department for Education to ensure that you are not subject to a prohibition order or an interim prohibition order.

15. Notes
