Crimes in CRB checks for northern Lincolnshire teachers
Dear Disclosure and Barring Service,
Could you please tell me how many crimes were identified through CRB checks of people applying for teaching positions in North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire respectively? (Could you provide this for the period 2016 - 2020).
Dear Mr Waller,
Thank you for your request made for information under the Freedom of Information Act, 2000. Before we can proceed with your request, I'd be grateful if you could clarify some of the details for me. This will enable us to provide you with accurate and relevant information.
Firstly, can you clarify the levels of check you would like us to search against (i.e. Basic, Standard, Enhanced, Enhanced with Barred List) unless you simply want data for all applications.
Secondly please confirm whether the information you want is for calendar year or financial year from 2016 to 2020/1.
Thirdly, we can only obtain information which is provided by applicants on their application forms; can you specify a list of the teaching and related positions you are interested in - therefore provide specific keywords for us to search against (i.e. teacher, head teacher, etc).
Fourthly, in saying 'how many crimes were identified' are you asking for the number of certificates which contain convictions, cautions, etc. or are you asking for the overall number of crimes recorded?
Finally, if you can provide specific postcode prefixes, that would be helpful as the data we hold would not always specify North Lincolnshire and NE Linconshire.
Please note your reference number is FOI 2089.
