Please note that new guidance in Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 requires us to also carry out an online search as part of our due diligence on shortlisted candidates.

This post will be exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 [exceptions] Order 1975 provides that when applying for certain jobs and activities certain convictions and cautions are considered protected. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers and, if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account.
