Identity verification for new chairs of trustees

Form for new chairs of trustees in academies, free schools and independent schools to verify their identity.



The form sets out:

  • the personal information you must give
  • how to use it in conjunction with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) application form
  • who can verify your identity
  • where you must send it

The ‘free school pre-opening guide’ gives more details on the process you must follow.
