Current opportunities:

Head of Year 12 - Tes Jobs

Torquay Girls' Grammar School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. It is an offence to apply for this role if you are barred from engaging in regulated activity with children. As part of our safer recruitment procedures, references will be taken up for all shortlisted applicants, and online searches will be completed. The successful candidate will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service and other employment checks. Torquay Girls' Grammar School promotes equal opportunities for staff and students.

For positions that are included in the Exceptions Order to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, or any regulated positions as defined by the Criminal Justice and Court Services Act 2000, a Criminal Records Check will be required.

Prior to appointment, all shortlisted applicants will be required to complete a Criminal Records Self Disclosure form prior to interview so that certain convictions and cautions can be discussed at the interview stage. The successful candidate will be offered employment that is subject to a criminal record check before the appointment is confirmed.

The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (2013 and 2020) provides that when applying for certain jobs and activities, certain convictions and cautions are considered ‘protected’. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers, and if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account.

Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found on the Ministry of Justice website
