The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and other workers to share this commitment.
We impose robust recruitment procedures and checks for appointing staff and volunteers to guard against appointing a person who is unsuitable to work with children, or who is disqualified from working with children, or does not have the suitable skills and experience for the role.
It is illegal for anyone who is barred from working with children to apply for, or undertake Regulated Activity.
