Alec Reed Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
All applicants will be subject to strict vetting and checks, with all successful applicants having to undertake a statutory enhanced DBS check as well as the latest requirements set out in the DFE’s Keeping Children Safe in Education document.
All checks must be complete prior to commencement of employment or placement.
