Disclosure and Barring Service checks
The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) helps employers make safer recruitment decisions and prevent unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups, including children. It replaces the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
Once you have been matched with an appropriate school, staff there will progress your DBS check for you. DBS checks normally take around 4 weeks to process. There is an associated fee, which your school will almost always pay on your behalf.
