Staff Induction


Welcome to the Bucksmore page for summer staff induction! This is where you will find a copy of all of the presentations, handbooks and documents that form part of our summer staff induction. Please keep an eye on this page before and during the summer, especially during the run-up to the summer and during the induction period. We will also let you know whenever anything important is added. We’re excited to be working with you this summer, and want to make sure that you have all of the information that you need to do a great job!

This presentation by Steve Wheeler (Head of Operations) and Edwina Laycock (Academic Manager) provides an introduction to Bucksmore and what staff can expect from a summer working with us. It also includes practical details of the timetable, what to bring with you, etc. 

Staff Handbooks

Our handbooks have been designed to give our Bucksmore team members an overview of the main responsibilities of the various roles, and what you can expect on a daily basis. They also contain important terms and conditions that form part of your contract with Bucksmore, so please make sure you have read and understood everything before you arrive.  Our health and safety documents also contain key information that help us guarantee the welfare of all the students in our care and it is essential that all staff have a clear understanding of the systems in place. 

Student Welfare and My Concern

Effective recording and case management of concerns are central to good safeguarding practice. It’s essential that members of staff, volunteers, senior leaders, trustees and/or board members all understand how to record their concerns, and that those responsible for case management have all the right tools at their fingertips.
