We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to be opening a school in London, one of the most diverse cities in the world. Our aim is that our workforce will be representative of all sections of society and each employee will feel respected and able to give their best.

Fairness in how we recruit and select our employees plays a significant part in creating an equal opportunities environment. Our aim is that every internal and external applicant who applies for a position within the School is considered against criteria, which relates only to the requirements of the job.To that end we are committed to provide equality and fairness for all.

Safer Recruitment

ODA is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in our schools. The Academy will not unfairly discriminate against any applicant for employment on the basis of conviction or other details revealed. The Academy makes appointment decisions on the basis of merit and ability. If an applicant has a criminal record this will not automatically debar him/her from employment within the Academy. Instead, each case will be decided on its merits in accordance with the objective assessment criteria.

ODA requires all employees to undertake an Enhanced DBS check because of the nature of our work. Applicants are required, before appointment, to disclose all previous convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings (except those which are “protected” as defined in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2013). A failure to disclose a previous conviction, caution, reprimand or warning may lead to an application being rejected or, if the failure is discovered after employment has started, may lead to termination of employment.
