Littlebourne School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in its care. As an employer, the school expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
In line with recent legislation, including the Children Act 2004, Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education Guidance DFES/04217/2006 and the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006, Childcare Act and Childcare (disqualification) Regulations 2009 (March 2015) the school takes very seriously its duty of care for all pupils. In order to help safeguard and promote the welfare of all its pupils the school is committed to a thorough and consistent Recruitment Policy.
Checks for appointing staff and volunteers will ensure that reasonable steps are taken not to appoint a person who is unsuitable to work with children, or who is disqualified from working with children, or does not have the suitable skills and experience for the intended role.
