At New Park Primary School:
Safeguarding Children and promoting their welfare is central to all our policies and procedures. Our aim and priority is to develop a safer organisation that has at its core an ongoing culture of vigilance.
It is the intention of our recruitment and selection procedures to deter, reject and remove people who might abuse or harm children, or otherwise be unsuitable to work with them.
Our safer recruitment procedures are applied in relation to everyone who works in our school who is likely to be perceived by our children as a safe and trustworthy adult. Those are not only people who regularly come into contact with our children, or who will be responsible for our children and may not have direct contact with children as a result of their job, but nevertheless will be seen as safe and trustworthy because of their regular presence in our school.
This policy and procedure sets out how staff will be recruited.
