The Sub-Committee’s views are sought on 3 Year CRB rechecks.


The Human Resources Manager (Social Care & Learning) presented the report on three yearly CRB rechecks which included: a review of the CRB recheck position of neighbouring authorities and Corporate Management Team’s decision to support a rolling programme of rechecks for Social Care & Learning. The purpose of the report was to seek the Committee’s views on these issues and recommend changes to the Council’s current approach to CRB rechecks for schools based staff and document storage and retention.

(i)         all schools be advised to undertake a CRB recheck for all staff on a three year rolling programme.

(ii)        Disclosure Certificates be retained securely, but indefinitely whilst the individual remained in employment.

(iii)       the amended policies in Appendices A and B, of the agenda papers, be approved in line with recommendation (ii) above.
