All members of Clifton RFC who have a regular supervisory contact with children or a management responsibility for those working with children must undertake an RFU Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. It is a criminal offence to work with children unsupervised without such a check. Positions that require a DBS check include (but not excluding) the following,
- Safeguarding and Assistant Safeguarding Officers.
- Volunteer co-ordinator.
- Coach (whether volunteer or paid, assisting or leading).
- Club Referee’s.
- Age Group Managers.
- Open Age Team Captains.
- Junior Supervisors.
- First Aiders / Physiotherapists / Medical Support.
- People with access to children's personal information (GMS, Pitchero, etc…).
- Hold a position of influence
Wondering whether you need a check? In short, if you are working with children or young people more than once per week or 4 or more times in a 30 day period, you need a DBS check.
