Acorn Childcare is responsible for having in place a suitable vetting process to safeguard the children in our care.

Our recruitment procedure makes sure that potential employees are both suitable for employment and able to work with young children. We also require employees to inform us of any change in their circumstances, in relation to personal involvement with social services, a relationship with a disqualified person or if they reside where a disqualified person lives.

We are committed to providing equal opportunities and safest possible approach to recruitment.

Safer recruitment

We are also committed to safeguarding children and promoting the welfare of children – therefore, we expect all employees and volunteers to share this commitment.

We have a safeguarding policy in place and display our safer recruitment commitment in all recruitment and selection material. Staff conducting interviews will have attended safer recruitment training.
