DBS Checks

.

Here at The Nanny Company we take our nanny screening process very seriously. One of the elements we insist on is that all of our nannies have had a DBS Enhanced Disclosure in the last three years.

.

The DBS is an Executive Agency of the Home Office set up to help organisations make safer recruitment decisions.

.

People such as nannies who want to work with children are required to apply for an Enhanced DBS disclosure. The DBS will check information...

  • Held on the Police National Computer (PNC) including convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings in England and Wales, both spent and unspent.
  • Held by local police forces and other agencies relating to non conviction information.
  • Held on the lists maintained by the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA)
  • On lists held at the Department of Health and Department of Education and skills
  • On List 99- the register of men and women who are barred from working with children.
  • On the POCA list.(The Protection of Children Act)
  • On the POVA list.(The Protection of Vulnerable Adults)
  • Held by other sources, such as the British Transport Police, Royal Military Police and The Ministry of Defence Police
