DBS Clearance

As you may already be aware, all people having unsupervised contact with children need to be given clearance from the Disclosure and Barring Service. Currently it is no longer a requirement for all voluntary helpers in school and on educational visits to obtain a DBS clearance. If you are simply volunteering for the occasional educational visit this is not a requirement. However, if you wish to volunteer on a more regular basis, a DBS will be required. 

Although there is no charge for the actual disclosure of a volunteer, the school is being charged an administration fee for this clearance, providing it is completed on-line. The Governors of Lightwater Village School have agreed that this charge should be met by the school as a goodwill gesture to those who willingly give up their time to help our children on a regular basis.  This fee is currently being covered by the Parents’ Association.
