We have different types of visitors, those with a professional role, those connected with the building, grounds maintenance, children’s relatives or other visitors attending an activity.
We will not request DBS checks or barred list checks, or ask to see existing DBS certificates, for visitors such as children’s relatives or other visitors attending a sports day. The Headteacher l will use their professional judgment about the need to escort or supervise such visitors.
For visitors who attend our setting in a professional capacity we will check their ID and seek assurance that the visitor has had the appropriate DBS check (or the visitor’s employers have confirmed that their staff have appropriate checks).
Whilst external organisations can provide a varied and useful range of information, resources and speakers that can help us enrich children’s education; careful consideration will be given to the suitability of any external organisations.
