Safer Recruitment

The de Ferrers Trust is committed to providing the highest level of education and care to its students and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. 

The de Ferrers Trust recognises that the safe recruitment of its staff in the trust is essential to safeguard the children in attendance. It is our duty to prevent unsuitable people from working with children - ensuring we practice safe recruitment in checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.

Safer practice in recruitment means thinking about and including issues relating to child protection and safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children at every stage of the process and for all people being recruited.  For all posts enquiries will be made with previous employers about whether a safeguarding concern has been raised against you.

All schools must appoint staff in accordance with employment law.
