• you have not committed any further offence within 7 consecutive years of being sentenced
• you did not serve a custodial sentence at any time

offence under the Clean Slate Act 2004 nor a specified offence under the Children’s Act 2014

Checks of Children’s Workers) Regulations 2015.
9. This information will be held by the employer. For the successful candidate, this
document will be held on their personal file, otherwise the information provided will be securely destroyed after 30 days. You may access it in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Act 2020.
