    If it is on the update service you should only have to provide your DBS number and they will be able to check.

    Yes
    Give them the number
    To be doubly take a screenshot shot along as well

    You only should have one dbs document - the original which you paid to have updated.
    Don’t forget passport or drivers licence (or both!)

    That is perfectly normal, so don't worry.

    It is perfectly normal for schools to carry out their own DBS checks. Just take the documents you have been asked to take along to the interview.

    Also, I have another suggestion. Please don't take this the wrong way but I have noticed some grammatical errors in your posts that I am sure are the result of predictive text on your phone/tablet, so if you are asked to do a written task at interview just be aware of that. For example, you used 'there' instead of 'their' and you have spelt having as 'haveing'.
    You probably won't be asked to a written task anyway.

    Good luck.

    I would take the documents in as asked and then you can always clarify in person that as you have signed up to the online update service which means that your current DBS was not just completed up to 3 years ago but is current and up to date would they still like to proceed or you are more than happy to provide them with the details for them to log on and access you DBS check. They may still wish to proceed with a new check which they will incur the costs for.

    I got told when I paid for my dbs with the teaching agency that it’s transferable to schools even if I applied independently like now. So I don’t get it ...

    Thanks for the spelling advice

    By a screenshot I meant what you have done in a previous post.

    However I worry that your dbs may not be portable anymore.
    The agency may have told you it is but unless you registered it on the update servic3 within 28 days of getting it and paid some more money directly to dbs then it is no longer portable.

    Some schools won't be up to date with the new online system!

    They have a set safeguarding system which they will stick to.

    Why do they have to pay to get that system to check? Or can they just do it via a simple registration? I didn’t think it was that new
