DBS Filtering Rule
All employees and volunteers in regulated activity, will require an enhanced DBS check. This is completed by the school, prior to appointment. From 28 November 2020, the filtering rules for Standard and Enhanced DBS checks changed. These changes are the result of a Supreme Court Judgment which identified that some elements of the existing filtering rules were disproportionate. Legislation has been changed, and from 28 November 2020, DBS certificates will disclose criminal records according to this new legislation.
This means that the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) will no longer disclose youth reprimands, youth warnings, or youth cautions. They will also no longer automatically disclose all convictions where an individual has more than one conviction – instead, each individual conviction will be assessed against the appropriate rules.
