We attach great value to supporting our staff to develop and grow in their work through stimulating Professional Development Days, creative collaboration within and between departments, and coaching and peer mentoring.

PGS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are "spent" unless they are "protected" under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.

Our Recruitment, Selection and Disclosure Policy and Procedure and our PGS Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Procedure can be found on our school policies page.
