Supplementary Information:

Criminal Records Check:

All posts within The Priory Federation of Academies Trust will require the employee to have an enhanced disclosure check by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

This will be required regardless of whether or not the employee holds a current Disclosure Certificate.

Disclosure checks will only be requested once an offer of employment has been made. The results of this check will not necessarily be a bar to obtaining the position you have applied for and will not be used unfairly.

The DBS check is made under the provisions of the Police Act (1997). The Trust will confirm your identity at the interview and submit the application to the Disclosure and Barring Service, paying the necessary fee. The 1997 Police Act allows employers to obtain information on people who are being considered for appointment to positions involving work with children, vulnerable adults or other positions of trust.

The post you are applying for is subject to an enhanced disclosure. You must provide details of all convictions (both UK and abroad) including those ‘spent’ under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and Exceptions Order 1975, cautions and bind-overs, reprimands, warnings, investigations or prosecutions pending. Failure to disclose any information required of you may result in your application being rejected, disciplinary action or dismissal. You must also inform us if you are on List 99, disqualified from working with children, or subject to sanctions imposed by a regulatory body.

Any information disclosed will be treated sensitively and in confidence and will only be used in deciding a candidate’s suitability for the post applied for. If applicable, please supply full details of the above. Please use a separate sheet for this information, and include a date and your signature.

Failure to disclose any criminal offences or providing false information, which is an offence, could result in this application being rejected, or dismissal if the applicant has been selected, and possible referral to the Police.

Successful applicants will be required to produce documentary evidence of their right to work in the UK.

Equal Opportunities:

The Trust is an Equal Opportunities employer therefore operates an Equal Opportunities Policy, the aim of which is to ensure that unfair discrimination does not take place in recruitment.

In order to help the Trust monitor the effectiveness of this policy (and for no other reason), you are asked to provide the information requested on the separate Equal Opportunities Monitoring form available from the left hand side of the screen.

This information is confidential and the information on the form will not be taken into account when considering the application.

Both forms will be kept separate when received.
