Disqualification by association

‘Disqualification by association’ requirements are to be removed from schools and registered non-domestic childcare settings. Draft guidance has been published for September 2018 implementation.

Schools will still be required to ensure that their own staff and volunteers who work in or manage early years childcare and ‘wrap-around’ care for under 8s are not personally disqualified - but no longer to extend their enquiries to those who live and work in their households.

A Ministerial Statement and DfE consultation response are also available.
