Terms & Conditions

Leaving your child here in confidence

Venue 360 feels it is extremely important that you know you are leaving your child in safe hands and are pleased that the government has now made it the law that all adults responsible for looking after children are DBS checked.

 

All Venue 360 staff responsible for carrying out our children's activities have gone through an 'Enhanced DBS Check'.

So not only are our staff very experienced and competent in making sure your child has lots of fun in a safe and secure environment, they have also gone through the necessary DBS check required.


DBS Q&A's:

1. Who is the DBS?

DBS stands for the Disclosure and Barring Service. The DBS was created on 1 December 2012 as a merger between what was the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).

 

2. What is a DBS check?

A standard DBS check involves a check of an applicant's criminal record against the Police National Computer (PNC) for spent and unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings. A DBS check is what used to be called a CRB check.

 

3. What is an Enhanced DBS check?

An enhanced DBS check includes all the information disclosed as part of a standard check, plus any information held locally by police forces that’s considered relevant to the child workforce and post applied for. This information is disclosed at the discretion of a Chief Police Officer.
