Thank you very much for showing an interest in Stramongate School.
All posts involving direct contact with children are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and successful applicants will be required to undergo a suitable enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service disclosure. However, amendments to the ROA 1974 (Exceptions Order 1975 (2013 & 2020)) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are 'protected'. These are not subject to disclosure to employers and cannot be considered. Guidance and criteria on the filtering of these cautions and convictions can be found on the Ministry of Justice website.
Confirmation of, or details of criminal history, will not be requested in our application form but shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete a criminal record self-disclosure form to provide details of all unspent convictions and those that would not be filtered or protected prior to the date of any interview. Candidates may be asked for further information about their criminal history during the recruitment process. For successful applicants, the criminal record self-disclosure information will be checked against information from the Disclosure and Barring Service before an appointment is confirmed.
In addition to the above, the school reserves the right to carry out an online search on short-listed candidates. This will only include a search for information which is publicly available online.
It is an offence to apply for a role if a candidate is barred from engaging in regulated activity relevant to children.
We do not have any vacancies currently.
