Not too long ago I was accused of a child protection issue which has been dealt with and it has been found to have been partly malicious and partly contrived. I was interviewed by the police, but never arrested or charged.The Local Authority didn't take any action after considerable procrastination. My contract ran out during the (what seemed like endless) proceedings I initially decided that I didn't want to teach again, but now I am having second thoughts. I am aware that Local Authorities only do CRB checks after a job offer is made. I am also pretty sure that this will come up on my disclosure. Needless to say I will tell the truth if asked in the interview about this, and put it on any application form if required. I wonder if anybody knows if having this (unjust) black mark on my CRB would have a negative impact on any applications?
