Members of staff will have this paid for by school who will arrange for you to complete the necessary forms. School will ask you to bring in the documentary evidence required. A list of the types of documents that can be used are shown in the link above.
Students may have their DBS arranged by their education provider and if it is, this must be in place before they begin their placement in our school. A copy of the document must be seen in school before the start date and the education provider must sign a document to state that they will inform school of any ‘Additional Information’ that they receive regarding a student. School has the right to withdraw the offer of a placement in the event of receiving adverse information. If the education provider is not arranging the DBS for the student, we can arrange this in school. However, the student will need to meet the cost of this them self and we will not begin to arrange for the DBS to be completed until the payment has been made by the student.
The cost of a DBS + administration fees charged to the school for a student is currently - £60
Volunteers may need a DBS arranged by school. The volunteer will need to meet the cost of this themself and we will not begin to arrange for the check to be completed until the payment has been made by them.
The cost of a DBS for a volunteer is free, but the administration fee that we are charged must be met by the volunteer. This is currently £15.
