We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that all our employment practices reflect this commitment.
In line with the Good Shepherd Trust Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy, all staff and volunteers are expected to adhere to all Good Shepherd Trust and school procedures and protocols in relation to safeguarding.
Any offer of employment or volunteer work is conditional upon an enhanced certificate issued by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) in line with the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the Amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975, 2013 and 2020.
DBS Filtering Rule
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.
