DISCLOSURE OF CRIMINAL BACKGROUND OF THOSE WITH ACCESS TO CHILDREN
The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 [exceptions] Order 1975 [2013 and 2020] provides that when applying for certain jobs and activities certain convictions and cautions are considered protected. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers and, if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account. Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found in ‘Changes to the Criminal Records System November 2020.docx Page 2’ on the Ministry of Justice Website and the websites of charities NACRO and UNLOCK.
It is an offence to apply for a post engaging in regulated activity relevant to children if you are barred from working with children. This post is exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, and whilst applicants are not required to make declarations at application stage, at the shortlisting stage all candidates will be required to complete a self- declaration form regarding their criminal record (unless ‘protected’) and will also be required to submit any information that would make them unsuitable to work with children.
Any such information will be treated in strictest confidence and used only in consideration of the suitability of the post. Criminal convictions will not automatically exclude you from being considered unless they fall within the threshold of being relevant and unsuitability, and will be considered on a case by case basis or as defined by the Department for Education (Keeping Children Safe in Education 2021)
THIS POST IS SUBJECT TO AN ENHANCED DBS CHECK WITH CHILDRENS BARRED LIST.
