Further Information

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Any offer of employment will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure which the School considers satisfactory, the receipt of satisfactory references, the school’s pre-employment medical questionnaire and sight of relevant original ID documentation and degree certificate(s).

Applicants who have lived outside of the UK in the past 10 years will be required to provide a Police Check from their country of residence. In addition, and where applicable, successful candidates will be required to produce a ‘letter of professional standing’ issued by the relevant professional regulatory authority as proof of past conduct.Lancing College conducts online searches for shortlisted candidates. This check is undertaken based on the requirements set out in Keeping Children Safe in Education 2023. The check helps us to ensure safe and robust checks on the suitability of individuals to work within our School.

To minimise unconscious bias or potential discrimination issues, a person who will not be on the appointed interview panel will conduct the search and will only share information when findings are of a concern. The appointed panel may explore any concerns passed to them as part of our due diligence process.

The College is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and therefore all convictions, cautions, reprimands, and final warnings (including those which would normally be considered “spent” under the Act) must be declared. If you have a criminal record this will not automatically debar you from employment. Instead, each case will be assessed fairly by reference to the School’s objective assessment.
