Please note, we reserve the right to close posts at any time, once we have received sufficient applications. We advise you to submit your application as early as possible to prevent disappointment. Applications can only be accepted using the School’s application form, which will be made available with each individual job advert.
The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The safeguarding responsibilities of the post are listed within the job descriptions.
All applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including online searches, checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
All posts are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are “spent” unless they are “protected” under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.
At interview applicants must provide original documents to confirm their identity and right to work in the UK. They must also bring proof of qualifications where relevant for the post. The documentation required by applicants is listed in the Recruitment Policy which is available on the school website and from the School.
The Blue Coat School is an equal opportunities employer.
