School bans parents from watching sport without a CRB check
The Isambard Community School in Swindon, Wilts’, insists all parents must clear a Criminal Records Bureau check to weed out potential paedophiles.
Neil Park, 54, was furious when he was turned away from watching his son George, 12, play rugby.
The school introduced the new measure at the start of the term to prevent strangers from accessing other parts of the school from the playing fields.
A spokesman said: "It is with regret that from now on we will be unable to accommodate parents wishing to spectate at our sports fixtures unless they are in possession of an up-to-date Swindon Council CRB check. At Isambard we take safeguarding very seriously and because of this we are unable to leave gates open for access to sporting venues at anytime during the school day.”
