Starting work without a check

An individual should not begin working until the DBS Certificate has been received.

In exceptional circumstances, an individual may begin work on completion and submission of a risk assessment form completed and authorised by the headteacher.

The DBS check must be in process with the DBS before a risk assessment and barred list check can be used.
