Children’s Barred List Checks
(formerly known as List 99 Check)
Who can apply for a Children’s Barred List Check?
The Children’s Barred List Check (formerly List 99 Check) allows educational establishments to check against a database to see if there is a possible match for a person included on the Children’s Barred List. The checks are separate to a DBS check and can be requested independently.
According to the Department for Education, educational establishments (such as schools, colleges and nurseries) can apply for a Children’s Barred List Check if their applicant:
- Undertakes unsupervised activities, teaching, training, instructing, caring for or supervising children, or providing advice/guidance on well-being, or driving a vehicle only for children.
- Works for a limited range of establishments (“specified places”), with the opportunity for contact, e.g. schools, children’s homes, childcare premises. This does not include work with supervised volunteers.
- Provides relevant personal care, e.g. washing or dressing / health care by, or supervised by, a professional.
- Is a registered childminder and/or foster carer.
Children’s Barred List Checks allow you to make an informed recruitment decision but are not a comprehensive check against the Children’s Barred List and should not be used as an alternative to an Enhanced DBS with Children’s Barred List Check.
