Keeping children safe

It has been brought to my attention that a supplementary advice has been issued to schools as the statutory guidance from the DFE, detailing a requirement for childcare disqualification checks on staff now include anyone who lives in the same household.

Apparently this has been in effect from 2009, it's the first I've heard of it.

My question is should this also include preschools and nurseries.

Yes definitely - I cam across this recently and have added it to our application forms etc because a person who lives with someone banned from working with children is also banned themselves......Unless appealed with ofsted etc and they decide it's ok

Can I ask how you worded it on your application form? I'm looking to update mine following on from a thread not so long ago about something similar

How do you then 'check them out' - do you ask directly if they are disqualified from working with children/on Sex offenders list and rely on their honesty in declaring or is there a site you can check with (I'm guessing not)

It is on our suitable persons check list which is included with our application forms, I guess you can really only go on what you are told on the form so theoretically they could lie........as far as I am aware apart from carrying out the crb etc you can't know for certain though

I think the supplementary advice now stipulates asking about family members or people that live with you at the same address.

So this might include partners,lodgers, step-children, foster children / adults.

Going to read this thoroughly before adding to our yearly declaration form we presently use.
