The Salterns Academy Trust is a learning community where every member of staff understands the difference they can make to our students’ outcomes.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated cleaner to work within our team as well as on their own. The roles are varied as outlined in the job description. Previous experience is not necessary, full training provided.
The Salterns Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring checks along with other relevant employment checks.
To apply please complete the application form that can be found on the website www.alns.co.uk and return it together with your letter of application to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, please contact Miss Jeal at Admiral Lord Nelson School.
All applications will be acknowledged, and unsuccessful candidates will be notified by post.
Some forms of employment, occupations and professions are exempted from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
Working within a School is exempted from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
You are applying for a role that is eligible for an enhanced DBS check and access to the barred list and if shortlisted for interview you will be required to complete the relevant self-declaration and disclosure form and taking into account the offences that are protected or filtered declare:
- All unspent convictions and conditional cautions.
- All spent convictions and adult cautions that are not protected (i.e. that are not filtered out) as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2020).
- If you have been barred from working with Children and/or Adults at risk.
The DBS check will reveal both spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings, and any other information held by local police that’s considered relevant to the role. Any information that is “protected” under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 will not appear on a DBS certificate.
The successful candidate will then be asked to complete an application for the relevant Disclosure and Barring Service check or if subscribed to the update service provide the necessary details to allow a check to be made.
The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (2013 and 2020) provides that when applying for certain jobs and activities, certain convictions and cautions are considered ‘protected’. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers, and if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account.
Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found on the Ministry of Justice website.
The filtering rules were updated on 28 November 2020 as follows:
- warnings, reprimands and youth cautions will no longer be automatically disclosed on a DBS certificate
- the multiple conviction rule has been removed, meaning that if an individual has more than one conviction, regardless of offence type or time passed, each conviction will be considered against the remaining rules individually, rather than all being automatically disclosed.
