Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This Post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974; pre-employment checks will be carried out, references will be sought and successful candidates will be subject to a DBS and other relevant checks with statutory bodies.

At St Joseph’s, we promote diversity and want a workforce which reflects the population of Leeds.

We complete all safeguarding checks inline with Keeping Children Safe in Education and Safer Recruitment and in line with these policies, please note that holding a teaching qualification does not guarantee that the individual is suitable to work with children.
