I note your request for information was as follows:

I refer to the CRB disclosures, enhanced or otherwise issued under the umbrella of the registered body UK Athletics Limited:

1) Please provide the number of CRB checks (Disclosures) issued for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. Please provide a breakdown by year.

2) Of the disclosures provided in 1 above, please specify how many applied for the position of:

i. Volunteer Coach

ii. Volunteer Official

3) Please advise how many individuals who applied for a disclosure under the UK Athletics umbrella since 2008, have subsequently been classified as unfit to work with children


As regards question 3, I felt it would be interesting to understand what proportion of those applying for a CRB check in athletics, were later found to be unfit to work with children. I presume you have no knowledge of those refused (voluntary) employment by UK Athletics, so I am requesting numbers of individuals where “None Recorded” does not apply for the following checks:

Information from the list held under Section 142 of the Education Act 2002

ISA Children’s Barred List Information

ISA Vulnerable Adults Barred List Information.
