The safe recruitment of all staff (including: consultants/ contractors/ supply teachers, activity providers and volunteers) in schools is the first step to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in education. At Jerudong International School we ensure the practice of safe recruitment in checking and recording the suitability of staff and volunteers to work with children.
As part of the safe recruitment procedure, we will require the following information prior to starting work at JIS:
- Up to date police records from a teacher’s country of origin and previous country of employment.
- Two references, one of which must be from the current employer. If a teacher has worked in two or more schools, within 5 years, telephone contact will be made with those schools to ask why the teacher is leaving and if there were any concerns of a safety nature with children.
