DBS checks for school volunteers (FOI)

DBS checks for school volunteers (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 04 July 2019.
Prepared internally, no external costs.



Are people involved in going into primary schools to support reading with students DBS checked?


Are people invited to support teachers helping out on school trips, such as other parents DBS checked?



The Every Child Our Future volunteers are required to be DBS checked. This is explained in the FAQ in the attached volunteer guide:

Every Child Our Future volunteer guide


The policy states that only people with enhanced DBS checks can accompany groups on residential or off-Island visits. A parent or volunteer who was helping on a school trip on a one-off basis would not usually meet the eligibility requirements for an enhanced DBS check as they would be supervised at all times by staff with enhanced DBS checks. The policy on Education Visits is available at the following link:
