St Aidan’s Church of England High School (Part of YCST) takes safeguarding very seriously and is committed to safeguarding and the promotion of the welfare of all children and the prevention of extremism. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Successful applicants will be required to provide references, undertake an enhanced check through the Disclosure and Barring Service and comply with the Safeguarding Policy and Child Protection Practices of YCST. Checks are also undertaken to verify identity, address, qualifications required for the post, right to work in the UK and previous employment history.
All employees at St Aidan’s have repeat DBS checks at least every 5 years and wear an identity badge with a photograph that identifies them.
All visitors are required to wear a visitor’s badge after identifying themselves at reception and signing into the premises.
The school has a Child Protection Policy which operates within Local Authority Safeguarding Children Board and Government parameters. It is available on the policy documents page of the school website or from Mrs G Soper (Deputy Head and School Child Protection Coordinator). Please contact Mrs Soper if you require any further information about our safeguarding policy.
