Equal Opportunities
We are committed to the fair treatment of our staff, potential staff, regardless of race, gender, religion/belief, sexual orientation, age, pregnancy/maternity, marital or civil partnership status, physical/mental disability, responsibilities for dependants or offending background.

The information you give on this form will help us ensure equality in our services to you. We recognise that you may regard some of this information as personal and we have, therefore, included an option in most questions for ‘prefer not to say’.

All information that we collect in relation to equality and diversity will be treated confidentially in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 and will be stored within the Applicant Tracking System. Access to this information will be restricted to staff involved in the processing and monitoring of this data. It will be used to provide statistical information only. In completing the form below, you consent to us using your data for this purpose.
Online Searches

In line with recommended practice in the statutory guidance “Keeping Children Safe in Education", the Trust will conduct searches for information on shortlisted candidates which is publicly available on-line.  The purpose is limited:

•             to identify issues which call into question the applicant’s suitability to work with children;

•             to verify employment history.

Searches will be conducted by an appropriate third-party organisation. Only information related to the purposes stated will be shared with the Interview Panel. Any information will be discussed with candidates at interview before any decisions regarding the recruitment process are made.

Please read the following statements and information relating to your application carefully. 

By signing and submitting this form you certify and confirm the declarations are true to the best of your knowledge.

I certify that, to the best of my belief, the information I have provided is true and I understand that any false information will result, in the event of employment, in disciplinary investigation by The Sigma Trust, and is likely to result in dismissal.

Disclosure of Criminal convictions
Short-listed candidates will be asked to complete a Self-Disclosure Form (SD2) and, where appropriate, a disclosure/status check will be sought from the Disclosure and Barring Service in the event of a successful application. 

A conviction/caution/reprimand will not necessarily be a bar to obtaining employment, save in the case of management positions where a S128 Direction issued by the Secretary of State will prohibit employment. 

Safer Recruitment and Childcare Disqualification Checks
I certify that I am not disqualified from working with children or subject to sanctions imposed by a regulatory body which would restrict me from applying for this post. 

Shortlisted candidates applying for a relevant post in a school setting covered by the Childcare (Disqualification) Regulations 2009 (“the Regulations”) will be asked to complete a Disqualification Declaration Form. A disqualified person may only be employed in a relevant post if they obtain a waiver from Ofsted. By signing this application form you acknowledge and consent to completing the Disqualification Declaration Form if you are shortlisted for a relevant post in a setting covered by the Regulations.

Data Protection
I acknowledge that by completing this form the Trust will hold and process personal data (including special categories of data e.g. information about health) about me in line with their data protection policy. I acknowledge that the Trust will use/process this information for the duration of the recruitment process. I acknowledge this information will only be shared in line with the Applicant Privacy Notice. The Privacy Notice is available to view on the Sigma Trust Website:

Thank you for applying for this post.  Please be aware that it is not our practice to acknowledge receipt of applications, but you will be notified of the outcome of your application. Your interest in working with us is very much appreciated.
