All UK schools must comply with Ofsted and ISI guidelines when hiring staff by carrying out essential DBS checks and by using the onlinescr portal, your SCR can be accessed at any time and from any location. This cloud-based database is designed to help UK schools comply with DFE guidelines and with many tools that can be accessed from the easy to use interface, you can order online DBS checks whenever necessary.
How the System Works
Once a school has registered with Onlinescr, they can upload their SCR to the database and when hiring, an email containing the online disclosure application is sent to the applicant, and once ID has been verified, the online DBS checks are carried out and the results are automatically entered into the schools SCR. There is a one-off registration fee, plus an annual fee for each SCR, and any other services or checks are invoiced on a monthly basis.
Fast, Convenient and Secure
The portal connects you to DBS and most DBS checks are carried out within a couple of days, with the results entered into your online SCR, which you can access at any time from any location. Should you require any additional recruitment checks, the organisation can carry these out on your behalf and by becoming a member of Onlinescr, your school will always be Ofsted and ISI compliant.
All you have to do is register your school with the organisation and from then on, all of your DBS checks can be carried out at your convenience.
