Beacon High is committed to safeguarding; we do require DBS certificates for all staff and stakeholders working with our students and complete barred list checks. For more information on our safeguarding policy, please contact us. 

Safer recruitment is an important aspect of protecting and keeping children/young people safe. It applies to all employees/volunteers who have contact with, and access to children/young people. They are also people who children/young people see as safe and trustworthy. 

Safer recruitment processes are critical in reducing harm that can be caused by staff/ volunteers. Because those already involved in abuse, or those disposed to do so, are extremely difficult to identify all employers must do their utmost, through good practice and vigilance, to make it as difficult as possible for abusers to obtain access to children.
