The safe recruitment of staff in school is the first step to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in education. St Mary’s Catholic School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all students in its care.

As an employer, the school expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This Safer Recruitment Policy is informed by the DfE’s document ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education, Sept 2020’.

This policy is intended to highlight the school’s recruitment and appointment procedures and to prevent unsuitable individuals from working with St Mary’s Catholic School students.
