The Dean Trust is committed to creating a workplace where everyone feels respected, safe and able to express their individuality.

We are working to achieve this through a diverse, inclusive and equitable organisation. We are committed to listening to our community, actively seeking support from within or beyond our Trust and we are embedding ongoing professional development that increases understanding of and encourages tackling of inequity and discriminatory behaviour. Through our recruitment practices, we are working to remove actual or perceived barriers to access, so that we can attract a diverse range of applicants.

We believe that a more diverse workforce brings a diversity of mind, experience opinion and ideas. This will ensure that The Dean Trust is better placed to further improve our schools for the benefit of our pupils, our staff and the communities that we serve.

 

Our Vision

For all our pupils to BELIEVE in themselves, ACHIEVE their academic and social potential and SUCCEED in their journey through life.

We aim to achieve this by recruiting the best possible people who are passionate about ensuring that all of our schools deliver an ambitious but stimulating curriculum which is accessible to all children, an environment which ensures that they feel safe and secure and the technological resources to enable them to succeed and achieve their ambitions.

All schools within the Trust are dedicated to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school so that all those connected to the Trust feel proud of their identity and able to participate fully in school life.

Through our recruitment practices, we are working to remove actual or perceived barriers to access, so that we can attract a diverse range of applicants. This involves regularly reviewing and amending our processes and accompanying literature to remove unconscious bias or language that may exclude or discourage worthy candidates from applying. We will follow recruitment and selection best practices and monitor trends to identify gaps where we can promote diversity.

Safer Recruitment

Safeguarding children must be everybody’s responsibility and good safeguarding practice must be built into routine procedures and practice. Nowhere is this more important than in the recruitment and vetting of people who have contact with children.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Therefore, all post holders are subject to thorough pre-employment checks including enhanced Disclosure and Barring checks with barred list checks.

We have a variety of safeguarding procedures, policies and guidance to which all staff and volunteers are provided access, ensuring we actively promote the welfare and safety of all young people.

In line with GDPR guidelines, all information obtained during our recruitment processes is treated as confidential. Personal data will not be kept longer than needed. In cases of unsuccessful candidates, unless specifically agreed by the candidate, this will be for a period of no longer than 12 months to accommodate future applications to the Trust from the same candidate. In cases of successful candidates, this will be for the duration of their employment.
