British values

The Department for Education has said: "We want to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs." 

At The Meadows, we are very proud of the diverse range of activities we provide for the children and we strive to demonstrate these values. 

If you feel you may have something to offer the school linked with British Values (or know someone else who might be keen to), we would love to hear from you. Please contact the school office.

Sport and PE premium funding

What is the sports premium?

All schools receive additional funding from the government, to support the development of sport and physical education (PE) across their school. Funding must be used to facilitate additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport within the school, and to encourage healthy and active lifestyles. More information can be found on PE and sport premium for primary schools.

Criminal convictions

The school will undertake an enhanced DBS check for the successful applicant. If you have a criminal record, you must tell us about all 'spent' and 'unspent' cautions and convictions.

We ask that you also tell us about any police reprimands/cautions/warnings that may be revealed by the request of an enhanced disclosure from the DBS. If you are shortlisted, you will be asked to bring identification to the interview and, if appointed, you will be required to complete a DBS check at an enhanced level.

References

We will obtain references for the successful applicant. All offers of employment are made subject to the receipt of two references, which we regard as satisfactory.

If any of your previous roles (voluntary or paid) involved working with children, young people or vulnerable adults, we will ask for information about past disciplinary issues relating to these vulnerable groups (including any in which the time penalty is 'time expired') and whether you have been subject to any child/vulnerable adult protection concerns and the outcome of any enquiry or disciplinary procedures.

Shortlisting

Our selection process is based on each individual's own merits and abilities. The information provided in your application is evidence and used against the essential and desirable criteria required for the post. 

Interviews

If you are selected for interview, we will contact you with the details of the interview and explain what you need to bring. Our selection processes normally consist of a full interview programme and involves an opportunity to meet some other staff and students. For some roles you may be asked to take part in a written/practical/skills exercise.

Pre-employment checks

All offers of employment are made subject to pre-employment checks including a medical questionnaire and reference returns.

Safeguarding

Robust procedures are in place to ensure that staff who have access to children, young people and vulnerable adults or access to sensitive information about children, young people and vulnerable adults are employed safely.
