When you make a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) application VIA Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council you will need to undertake this online using the attached link:
Select 'start application' in the orange box which is an application in England and Wales.
There are three primary schools that you can select to process your application:
Address: Lawnswood Road, Stourbridge, West Midlands, DY8 5BZ

Once you have selected the primary school you want to attend to provide proof of your identification you will need to add the appropriate organisation reference on the portal as follows:
Leave the Organisational Code blank!
Then simply follow the online instructions. Please check your information thoroughly before you submit your application. It needs to be correct!
Once you have made your application contact your chosen school to arrange to take in your identification documents (ID) to be checked against the application you have made.
Guidance on ID requirements can be found here:
If you are unsure what ID to bring please email or phone the relevant school.
YOU WILL NEED AT LEAST 3 PIECES OF ID AND IT IS IMPORTANT YOU CHECK THE LIST AND ENSURE YOU HAVE THE CORRECT ID AND THAT IT IS WITHIN THE PRESCRIBED DATES SO THAT IT CAN BE ACCEPTED.
The cost of your DBS application and ID check is £55.00 and this needs to be paid directly to the primary school processing your application. A receipt can be issued.
IF YOU DO NOT BRING THE CORRECT ID THERE WILL BE A FURTHER ADMIN CHARGE OF £6.00 FOR ANY ADDITIONAL VISITS.
Once your application has been completed you will receive your certificate at your home address, usually within a few weeks of making your application.
It is important that once you receive your certificate you MUST obtain the update service for your DBS. SiSS will then undertake an annual update service check as opposed to a 3-yearly check. There will be no requirement to undertake a new DBS once the update service is in place.
NB you have 30 days from the date on the certificate to apply for the update service.
Further information on how to obtain the update service can be found on the link below:
