Annual Governance Statements for the Governing Body of St. Anne’s R.C. Primary School

DBS checks for governors

From 18 March 2016, all school governors have been required to apply for an enhanced DBS (disclosure and barring service) check. The Government regulations specifically state:

  • By 1 September 2016, all maintained school governing bodies have to apply for an enhanced criminal records certificate for any serving governor who does not have one; and
  • From 1 April 2016, all newly appointed/elected governors or associate members ideally need to be checked as part of the recruitment process, or at the latest have applied for a check within 21 days of appointment (start of term of office).


We can confirm that all governors at St. Anne’s R.C. Primary School have had a DBS check on appointment.
