Other Adults in the House Policy

There are other adults in the house;


  • All adults and children over 16 living in the house have undergone checks by the disclosure barring service (DBS) in the form of an enhanced DBS certificate. They have also been checked to be suitable persons by Ofsted/the childminder agency.
  • Assistant(s) involved in childcare will have a DBS check and be either going through Ofsted/childminder agency registration or will have completed that process and been approved by Ofsted/childminder agency. No assistant will be left alone with a child until DBS checks are clear and Ofsted/childminder agency have approved them as a suitable person.
  • We welcome the opportunity to support student childcare practitioners in our setting. All students on work placement will have completed the DBS process. Students will be supervised at all times.
  • Please note that this is an abbreviated version of the policy to protect people living on the premises’ privacy. Just ask us and we will happily go through the full version.
