Asylum and Immigration Act 1996

The Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 makes it a criminal offence for West Lakes Multi Academy Trust to employ those who do not have permission to live or work in the United Kingdom. Applicants will be required to provide documentary evidence of their right to work in the United Kingdom if invited to interview.


If, to the best of your knowledge, you are related to any employee of West Lakes Multi Academy Trust please state the name, address and relationship to such person.

Applicants with Disabilities

West Lakes Multi Academy Trust will guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the essential criteria for the post for which they are applying. The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 defines a disabled person as ‘An individual who has a long term physical or mental impairment which has substantial adverse effect on their ability to carry out day to day activities’.

Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974

The amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are 'protected' and are not subject to disclosure to employers , and cannot be taken into account. Guidance and criteria on the filtering of these cautions and convictions can be found on the Disclosure and Barring Service website, West Lakes Multi Academy Trust supports safeguarding of children and, therefore, while we do not ask for the disclosure of criminal convictions at the application stage we will ask prior to the application of an enhanced DBS to check your suitability to work in a school.
