As an organisation assessing applicants’ suitability for positions which are included in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order using criminal record checks processed through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), Newman School complies fully with the code of practice and undertakes to treat all applicants for positions fairly. Newman School undertakes not to discriminate unfairly against any subject of a criminal record check on the basis of a conviction or other information revealed.

Newman School is committed to the fair treatment of its staff and potential staff, regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependants, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. We actively promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and welcome applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with criminal records.

Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar a person from working in school. This will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of the offence(s).

If shortlisted, you will be asked to complete and return a Criminal Records Declaration Form prior to interview. At interview, or in a separate discussion, Newman School ensures that an open and measured discussion takes place on the subject of any offences or other matter that might be relevant to the position. Failure to reveal information that is directly relevant to the position sought could lead to withdrawal of an offer of employment.

Failure to declare a relevant conviction, caution or pending police action, will disqualify the applicant from appointment or result in summary dismissal if the discrepancy comes to light later. If applicants would like to discuss whether a conviction held would debar them from working in the position applied for, they should telephone Human Resources on (01709) 334141 in confidence, for advice.

All applications should be made online via email and queries via telephone to 01709 828262. Please mark your application clearly with the vacancy reference and return all application forms by email to: office@newmanschool.co.uk
