All teaching staff are CRB/DBS checked, right? Wrong!

DBSThe requirement for those working with young children and vulnerable adults to be CRB/DBS checked came into play in March 2002.

Therefore, people working in the same role prior to this date may not have been checked – so far there has been no legal requirement for them to apply for CRB/DBS checking.

What do you feel about this?
