Safer Recruitment

It is the legal duty of schools to ensure they recruit and assess the appropriateness of any person who may work with children.

At St. Thomas of Canterbury Catholic Primary School we are committed to safer recruitment and will do everything we can to ensure the safety of all our children and staff, right the way throught the recruitment process.


All people working with children must be assessed to ensure they are considered to be a safe and trustworthy adult.  

All staff and volunteers are vetted through the recruitment procedure, have the appropriate DBS disclosure record and at least two suitable, reliable references.


These procedures show our robust efforts to ensure the priority safeguarding has at school, ensuring only suitable adults are working with our children.


We would love to hear from you
