Protection of the vulnerable

Saint Maur International School takes its responsibility towards protecting children and the vulnerable very seriously. As part of our application procedure, the school utilizes a number of means to undertake background checks on job applicants to assure that they are suitable to work with young people, and that they have not harmed, exploited or abused others either emotionally, physically, sexually, or through any means of abuse or deception. Applicants are required to state that they do not, nor have they ever had a criminal record or received a caution/warning notification which would preclude them from working within a school environment or with young children/adolescents.

Should the school, in good faith, offer an applicant a position, and later, either during the application process, issuance of a contract agreement, or during employment, find that the person has not been completely truthful in their application, the school reserves the right to rescind/terminate any verbal or written agreement/contract made. Any breach of trust pertaining to the well-being, emotional, physical or sexual safety of students/others, whether they are associated with Saint Maur International School or not, will result in immediate dismissal and loss of all contractual benefits.

By applying to Saint Maur International School, applicants confirm that they meet the school’s stated safety criteria, as outlined above, and in other school documents, that they understand and agree to the school undertaking various background checks as part of the application procedure, and that they relinquish all rights to anonymity/concealment.
