FOI request - recruitment policies

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Shenfield High School, Brentwood, Essex,

Could you please indicate your policy on employing teachers or teaching professionals with police cautions and how this might effect the recruiting process. Please indicate whether you have shortlisted or recruited persons with cautions in the past. Please give examples of what types of cautions would debar someone from a position.

This research is part of a charitable venture I am undertaking.

Many thanks for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,

David

Dear David,

With reference to you request, please find our policy on the Employment of
Ex-offenders attached.

We have never had an application for a post where a caution or conviction
has been disclosed.

I am still endeavouring to obtain the comprehensive list of information
regarding examples of the types of cautions that would debar someone from
working in a school. I will ensure you have this information by Friday 7
May 2010 at the latest.

If you are not satisfied with my response to your request, please let me
know. If I am unable to resolve the issue immediately, I will explain our
complaints procedure. If, after following our complaints procedure, you
are still not satisfied, you are entitled to ask the Information
Commissioner to review our decision. You can contact him at Wycliffe
House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF, telephone 01625 545700.

Dear David,

With regard to my e-mail of 29 April 2010, I have now been able to
complete my enquiries regarding your request for us to indicate `what
cautions would debar someone from a position in a school'. No caution
automatically debars someone; it is a matter for the Independent
Safeguarding Authority (ISA). If you have any questions or queries about
the Vetting and Barring Scheme or the role of the ISA then please get in
touch with them by calling their contact centre on 0300 123 1111 or
alternatively you can email them at [1][email address] or visit
their website at isa-gov.org.uk
