NUT wins significant improvements on guidance on childcare disqualification 

The revised guidance now clarifies that:

  • In a school setting, only staff providing early years provision during school hours and those providing later years provision outside school hours fall within the scope of the Childcare Act.
  • It is not necessary for schools to ask staff to complete a self-declaration form.  They may use other, less intrusive means to determine whether a member of staff is or may be disqualified by association (refer to paras 20 to 23).
  • Employers should avoid asking for “unrelated or spent convictions of household members”
