CRB Checks

The appropriate part of the change is "Individuals who go into different schools or similar settings to work with different groups of children should not be required to register unless their contact with the same children is frequent or intensive" [1] which is a recommendation made to CRB in a report, which has been accepted by them. This would cover the Schools Project work, such that we would not need to obtain CRB checks. This has been confirmed with the CRB by phone; we are fine doing this project without CRB checks if we are going into different schools each time; if we repeatedly go to the same school then we would need a CRB check however.

List 99 etc. are being merged into ISA, which becomes compulsory for certain activities in November 2010. The same terms appear to apply to this too ("frequent" - once a month or more, and "intensive" - 3 times or more in a 30-day period); it is not clear whether this refers only to the _same_ children or any children. See [2] for more information. However, I also checked this with the CRB and the same applies as for CRB checks.
