    Default The name for CRB checks has changed - 07.01.2013

    The name for CRB checks has changed - they are now DBS checks - Disclosure and Barring Service.

    https://www.gov.uk/crb-criminal-reco...check/overview

    If you employ other childminders you might need to change your handbook, safeguarding information and recruitment procedures to reflect the new name.

    If you have written about CRB checks in your portfolio, in any policies and procedures you need to change the wording.

    You might also want to update parents with the new information in your next newsletter.

    Excellent, that has caused more work! Is there any change other than the name?

    So do I fill in the CRB forms for DS who is now 16 - they only came last week. Or will I be sent something different now?

    Thanks Sarah as usual, you are a star. I can't keep up with things!
    Happy to be back with the Greenies

    Thank you sarah. I think shall make a handwritten note on my already printed policies etc rather than printing them all out again! As a previous person said, they'll be known as crb's for a while!!

    I don't have any more info than is on the website at the moment - it's very new news - we are all waiting for further guidance from Ofsted

    Just a quick question about crb.

    How often do I have to have one taken?
    Time Out.. The perfect time for thinking about what you're going to destroy next.

    There is a new version of the EY2 form on the Ofsted website - dated 28 Nov 2012. That's still the most up-to-date one
