Criminal Convictions

A criminal conviction outside employment shall not be treated as an automatic reason for dismissal regardless of whether the offence has any relevance to the duties of the individual as a teacher. The main consideration shall be whether the offence is one that makes the individual unable/or unsuitable to discharge their contractual duties as a teacher. Teachers shall not be dismissed solely because a charge against them is pending or because they are absent through having been held in custody.
