Due to a change in regulations, school and academy governors will now only be eligible for the Children’s Barred List if they are engaged in regulated activity with children.
To be eligible for the Children’s Barred List, governors need to carry out one of the activities below on a frequent basis (at least once a week or 4 times or more in a 30 day period):
If governors will only be carrying out the usual responsibilities of a governor, such as attending meetings, they will not require the Children’s Barred List.
Governors continue to be eligible for volunteer DBS checks and so this can continue to be selected when setting up checks for this position.
It is the responsibility of the school to determine the level of check and add the Children’s Barred List accordingly. Please note that the Employmentcheck team will no longer query whether the role of school or academy governor requires a Children’s Barred List check.
