DBS processing and administration

Safeguarding legislation requires all school employees and volunteers, who engage in regulated activities with children to hold an Enhanced DBS check, the cost of which is £38 per check (volunteers are free of charge).

Judicium Education offer an online DBS checking service which is designed to ensure that the information provided to the Disclosure and Barring Service is accurate and in line with requirements. This is aimed at avoiding any unnecessary delays and preventing any checks from being unnecessarily rejected and needing to be resubmitted.

The cost of this service is £14 plus VAT per check.

Provision of an HR Administration Portal

Enabling Schools to keep up to date records of employees’ personnel, salary and employment details. In particular, the portal allows you to:

    • Create new HR records for new starters
    • View and amend personnel details
    • Record and track absence data
    • Keep a record of your employee’s employment history within your school
    • Keep a record of staff training and CPD
    • Record when someone leaves your employment
    • Retain relevant documentation

    In addition to the above information being shared between you and our Payroll and HR Admin services, this information can also be accessed by our Employment Law & HR Advisory service. This will enable those consultants to provide accurate and fact-specific advice and guidance, without the need for you to provide specific employee details.
