Safer Recruitment & The protection of Children 

All posts at Shooters Hill Sixth Form College are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974) (Exemptions) (Amendment) Order 1986.

Disclosure of any criminal background is required. Teaching and working in schools in the UK is exempt from the provisions of Section 4(2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, and therefore applicants are not entitled to withhold information about convictions (“Spent” or “unspent”), cautions and bind-overs which for other purposes are spent under the provisions of the Act.  Offers of employment will also be dependent on completion of a satisfactory Police check. Disclosure of criminal background will not necessarily bar you from appointment.

Offers of appointment will be conditional upon the individual obtaining a Disclosure Certificate from the Disclosure & Barring Service and on the relevance of the information contained in the Disclosure.

If you are currently working with children on either a paid or voluntary basis, your current and / or previous employers will be asked about any disciplinary offences relating to children, including any in which the penalty is time expired (that is where a warning could no longer be taken into account in any new disciplinary hearing for example) and whether the applicant has been the subject of any child protection concerns, and if so, the outcome of any enquiry or disciplinary procedure.

Shooters Hill Sixth Form College requires you to give details of all current (unspent and ‘spent’) convictions or pending cases, cautions, bind-over orders, reprimands and final warnings, including dates, the offence(s), sentences, and the court or police force which dealt with the offence.  Any offer of employment will be made on a conditional basis, subject to the relevant checks being carried out.  

Failure to make a full and accurate declaration may result in withdrawal of a job offer or, if subsequently discovered, to disciplinary action and/or dismissal.

If you are unsure about any matter, please contact the HR Department.
