Recruitment and Appointment Policy

Ark Kings Academy and Ark Schools believe that every young person, regardless of their background, is entitled to a great education and real choices in life. This may only be achieved through the appointment of high quality staff (Teaching and Operational).

Our Recruitment and Appointment Policy outlines our commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and apprentices to share this commitment. In order to meet this responsibility, it follows a rigorous selection process to discourage and screen out unsuitable applicants.

The use of this policy and procedure is to ensure that Ark Schools employs the best candidate for the job, assist Ark Schools to deter, identify and reject people who are unsuitable to work with children, help promote equality of opportunity and ensure that Ark Schools meets its statutory obligations.
