An offer of employment is conditional upon the School receiving an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring
Service (DBS) which the School considers to be satisfactory. The School applies for an Enhanced Check for regulated Activity
from the DBs (which includes a check of the Children’s Barred List) in respect of all positions at the School which amount to
regulated activity. It is unlawful for the School to employ anyone who is barred from working with children. It is a criminal
offence for any person who is barred from working with children to attempt to apply for a position at the School. If you are
successful in your application you will be required to complete a DBS Disclosure Application Form. Any information disclosed
will be handled in accordance with any guidance and/or code of practice published by the DBS.
The School is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and therefore all convictions, cautions, reprimands and
final warnings (including those which would normally be considered “spent” under the Act) must be declared. You are not to
disclose a caution or conviction for an offence committed in the United Kingdom if it has been filtered in accordance
with the DBS filtering rules (see Appendix 1 to this form.) If you have a criminal record this will not automatically debar you
from employment. Instead, each case will be assessed fairly by reference to the School’s objective assessment procedure set
out in the School’s recruitment, selection and disclosure policy and procedure.
It is a condition of your application that you answer the questions below. Before doing so please read Appendix 1.
Please supply the names and contact details of two people who we may contact for references. One of these must be your
current or most recent employer. If your current/most recent employment does/did not involve work with children, then your
second referee should be from your employer with whom you most recently worked with children. Neither referee should be a
relative or someone known to you solely as a friend. Crosfields School intends to take up references from all shortlisted
candidates before interview. Crosfields School reserves the right to take up references from any previous employer.
It is Crosfields School's policy to employ the best qualified personnel and to provide equal opportunity for the advancement of
employees including promotion and training and not to discriminate against any person because of their race, colour, national
or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital or civil partnership status, religion or religious belief, disability or age. All new
appointments are subject to a probationary period.
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.
A copy of the School’s recruitment policy and child protection policy is available for download from the School’s website.
Please take time to read them.
If your application is successful, the School will retain the information provided in this form (together with any attachments) on
your personnel file. If your application is unsuccessful, all documentation relating to your application will normally be
confidentially destroyed after six months.
