All Ark academies are expected to provide consistently excellent education for their students. This may only be achieved through the appointment of high quality staff (teaching and operational).

These procedures take into account relevant legislation and guidance, including the Department for Education Working together to Safeguard Children guidance, the Safeguarding children and Safer Recruitment in Education guidance and the Equality Act 2010 Code of Practice.

Ark Schools is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in its academies and expects all staff volunteers to share this commitment. In order to meet this responsibility, it follows a rigorous selection process to discourage and screen out unsuitable applicants.
