Online searches will be conducted on shortlisted candidates only, and only where the school considers this appropriate. The school will consider any potential risks of online searches, e.g. unlawful discrimination or invasion of privacy, and will be clear on the reasons that online searches are being conducted. Online searches will only examine data that is publicly available.

Online searches will be carried out by an individual who is independent of the recruitment process to minimise the risk of bias or discrimination and to ensure that only relevant information is considered. The person responsible for carrying out online searches will have due regard to Part three of KCSIE.

The online search process may include searching for the candidate by name via search engines and social media, such as:

  • Google

When carrying out searches of shortlisted candidates’ online presence, the school will look out for indicators of concern, such as:

  • Inappropriate behaviour, jokes or language.
  • Discriminatory comments.
  • Inappropriate images.
  • Drug or alcohol misuse.
  • Anything that suggests the candidate may not be suitable to work with children.

Any concerns will be addressed during the interview process. The school will ensure that candidates are given an opportunity to discuss any concerns raised by the online search.
