REHABILITATION OF OFFENDERS ACT 1974 (EXCEPTION ORDER 1975)
Assignments will involve you in close contact with pupils under the age of 18 or with students with learning difficulties or disabilities; your registration with ACTIVE RECRUITMENT SEN LTD is therefore exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and its supporting regulations. Consequently you are NOT entitled to withhold information about convictions which for other purposes are “spent” under the Act.
ACTIVE RECRUITMENT SEN LTD will check the information given in this section with the relevant authorities.
You will be required to apply for an enhanced disclosure level of police check through DBS (Disclosure & Barring Services).
Have you been convicted of a criminal offence other than a road traffic offence not involving injury to a 3rd Party, or a sentence of imprisonment?
If yes, please provide details below
All employees are required to provide relevant information about a person who lives in the same household as them, who may have influence over the employee working with children and who may therefore pose a risk to children i.e. “by association”.
You are therefore required to disclose:
Has anyone living in your household been barred from working with children by the DBS?
Has anyone living in your household been disqualified from working with children under the childcare Act 2006?
To the best of your knowledge, is anyone living at your address subject to the above?
If you have answered YES to any of the above, please provide further information below (you may provide an additional information sheet if necessary):
Any relevant information will be passed to OFSTED to make a decision as to whether the offence would lead to disqualification by association and you will be notified of their decision accordingly.
I confirm that the information I have declared above is correct and understand that I have duty to inform the Head teacher should any of this information change at any time during my employment with the school.
A check as to the existence and content of any relevant criminal record will be requested from the Disclosure and Barring Service after a person has been selected for appointment. Refusal to agree to a check being made could disqualify you from being considered for the appointment.
Under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, you have the right not to disclose details of ‘spent’ convictions. However, for certain jobs, employers are allowed to ask about these offences. The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exception Amendment) Order 1986 sets out details of all jobs to which this applies and the job you have applied for is included in the list. The amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are 'protected' and are not subject to disclosure to employers, and cannot be taken into account.
The filtering rules (which remove certain old and minor convictions and cautions, reprimands and warnings from a DBS Certificate) were developed by the Home Office and the Ministry of Justice and introduced with new legislation:
The legislation is:
For those 18 or over at the time of the offence:
An adult conviction will be removed from a DBS Certificate if,
Even then, it will only be removed if it does not appear on the range of offences which will never be removed from a certificate, which include serious sexua
l and violent offences. (see Exceptions to the Rules). If a person has more than one offence, then details of all their convictions will always be included.
An adult caution will be removed after six years have elapsed since the date of the caution – and if it does not appear on the list of offences relevant to safeguarding.
For those under 18 at the time of the offence:
For convictions, the same rules apply as for adult convictions, except that the elapsed time period is five and a half years.
For cautions, the same rules apply as for adult cautions, except that the elapsed time period is two years.
Exceptions to the Rules
Some offences will never be removed from a DBS Certificate. These include the most serious sexual and violent offences. You can view this specified list of offences at:
Further information is also available from:-
If you are unable to access the internet please contact the school who will be able to send this information to you direct.
You must provide details of any relevant criminal convictions that you may have. The disclosure of a criminal record may not necessarily prevent you from being appointed. The nature of the offence, how long ago it took place, your age at the time and any other relevant factors may be considered when a decision is made. Please note that some convictions are never considered ‘spent’ under the terms of the Act.
Have you ever been the subject of professional misconduct proceedings or suspensions from an employer, or such pending or threatened against you either in the UK or abroad.
If yes please give details attached to this application
The information you provide will be checked. If you are found to have provided false information your application will be terminated and you will be offered no assignments through ACTIVE RECRUITMENT SEN LTD. Further action may be taken.
