School Staffing (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2006 come into force

Implementation date: 12 May 2006

The Regulations require that, subject to exceptions, a person appointed to be a teacher or member of the support staff must, prior to or as soon as practicable after, his or her appointment be subject to an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau check made under the Police Act 1997. The same requirement is imposed in relation to supply teachers employed by local education authorities. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
