Does anyone know how long it takes from filling in my application form to ofsted and receiving my DBS check?

It varies and depends how many addresses you have had in the last 5 years and how quickly the police and social services in each area are working at the moment. I know of anything from 2 weeks upwards for my family and local minders .

As tulip said, anything upwards of 2 weeks, often significantly longer, for the check itself to come back from the dbs. If you mean how long until you get the actual dbs forms to fill in after doing your initial ofsted application then it was a matter of a few days for me.
