School 21 is committed to safeguarding the welfare of our pupils. School 21 is legally obligated to process an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check before making appointments to relevant posts.
The DBS check will reveal both spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings, and any other information held by local police that’s considered relevant to the role. Any information that is “protected” under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 will not appear on a DBS certificate.
For posts in regulated activity, the DBS check will include a barred list check.
It is an offence to seek employment in regulated activity if you are on a barred list.
Any data processed as part of the DBS check will be processed in accordance with data protection regulations and School 21's privacy notice for job applicants available on School 21's website or by clicking here.
Any job offer will be conditional on the satisfactory completion of the necessary pre-employment checks.
Only applicants who have been shortlisted will be asked for a self-declaration of their criminal record or information that would make them unsuitable for the position.
Any convictions that are self-disclosed or listed on a DBS check will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
