What chance someone with a dodgy enhanced crb ???

Discussion in 'Primary' started by MikeMatthews1956, Jan 21, 2011.

  1. I used to teach Yr 6 primary in Leicester. Due to allegations made outside school, for which I was found to be not guilty, I left primary teaching and now successfully work in the adult private sector. I would like to consider primary Y5-6 again - I have ISA clearance - but my enhanced crb details the allegations, and this may put off a prospective head. Even though I was deemed an inspirational teacher by Ofsted and was considered good at my job;The fact that I now have an enhanced crb with 'stuff' on, even though I have no cautions, reprimands, warnings or convictions; the fact I got consistently high SATs results with my classes ( as if that is everything ); the fact I was well respected teacher - that could all be prejudiced by my enhanced crb. So, headteachers, be honest - would you employ someone with an excellent record yet had allegations made that proved to be unfounded ? Interesting, given the climate of risk aversion we live in !!!
