Since any adult working in an educational environment will be working with children, the academy follows the most rigorous pre-employment checks to satisfy our 'safer recruitment' amd safeguarding duties. These checks take time and we need to make sure that each prospective member of staff has provided us from an early stage with the information and evidence we need to be able to carry out the checks and receive the relevant confirmations in good time. Prospective staff members cannot start at the academy until checks are complete. 

To carry out our checks we need to see some original documents. Please note that we cannot accept scans, photocopies, photos or printouts from the internet. This means online bank statements or online utiility bills are no use. We can use an online bank statement which has been printed provided the bank has stamped it to show it is authentic. We cannot accept mobile telephone bills.

  • Current passport
