Enhanced DBS Check
The safeguarding of children is of primary importance in the teaching profession. Therefore, for the peace of mind of parents and guardians of all of my students who are minors, I hold an up-to-date Enhanced DBS check certificate.
What is an Enhanced DBS check?
An Enhanced criminal record check, also known as an Enhanced DBS Check, details any cautions, warnings, reprimands or convictions on an individual’s criminal history and if relevant, can also check against the children and/or adults barred lists. Usually, applicants working in certain positions involving children or vulnerable adults are eligible for an Enhanced DBS Check.
What does an Enhanced DBS check show?
This level of check shows full details of a criminal record, including Cautions, Warnings, Reprimands, spent and unspent convictions. It can also search the children and vulnerable adults ‘barred list’ to see if the applicant is prohibited from working with these groups. Local police can add any relevant information about the applicant.
