Recruitment during school closure periods and social distancing

It is our intention to continue our recruitment processes throughout this period.  Due to the current schools closure period in place due to COVID-19, it is likely that methods of recruitment will be altered.  Once we are in a position to confirm the nature of processes, we will contact shortlisted applicants with details.

It is likely these will involve virtual interviews with some creativity as to how to run any assessment tasks.


Our Vision 

To ensure that all the children and young people in our care have the opportunity to fulfil their potential through achieving highly, regardless of their ability or background.

Safer Recruitment

The de Ferrers Trust is committed to providing the highest level of education and care to its students and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. 

The de Ferrers Trust recognises that the safe recruitment of its staff in the trust is essential to safeguard the children in attendance. It is our duty to prevent unsuitable people from working with children - ensuring we practice safe recruitment in checking the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.

Safer practice in recruitment means thinking about and including issues relating to child protection and safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children at every stage of the process and for all people being recruited.

All schools must appoint staff in accordance with employment law.  Maintained schools must also follow the requirements set out in the School Staffing (England) Regulations 2009 and appointments in academies must be made in line with any relevant requirements set out in the funding agreement and the Education (Independent School Standards) regulations 2014.

See our Safer Recruitmet Policy below for further details.
