CRB - Can't Really Be trusted

In response to recent incidents the CRB policy was intended to protect children. Unfortunately all a clean record really means is that you havent been caught. It also means that people who should be working with children are prevented from doing so by unrelated convictions such as shoplifting. It could even be detrimental to child safety as a doctor could be prevented from entering a school to treat a seriously ill child if they are not CRB checked through that school. And it seems that even parents are treated with suspicion and denied access to school. It really is a ridiculous system that needs changing fast.
