Newland House is an Equal Opportunities Employer and a Registered Educational Charity.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
For roles that amount to regulated activity with children the post will be exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are "spent" unless they are "protected" under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.
Your attention is drawn to the school's Safeguarding Policy, Recruitment Policy and other supporting documentation accessible on the right hand side of this page.
All applications should be sent to Mrs Alka Soni, HR & Compliance Manager (Tel: 020 8865 1231) by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date for the role.
No CVs will be accepted.
