Disclosure & Barring Service
I received a DBS check on the 13 th of October 2018 as part of my role as Santa & as a Children's Entertainer working at Great Grotto's Christmas grotto at the High Cross Shopping Centre in Leicester City Centre. I will be working there from the November 2018 until December 2018.
The paperwork below is evidence that a DBS check was applied for and received by Great Grotto's and myself on the 13/10/2018.
I have worked for Great Grotto's in 2010, 2011, 2017 & 2018.
According to the DBS the role of children's entertainer isn't one that a DBS check is necessary for. DBS is only essential for people who work alone with children with no other adult present.
It is recommended that the booker of any entertainment should ensure, for safeguarding reasons, that any children's entertainer is not left alone - without another adult - in the room where he/she is delivering the entertainment.
