Hi, I need to apply for a working with children card as a requirement to run children's Jiu Jitsu classes at my new gym (I won't be teaching the children, though, another employee is) and I am concerned about some charges I fought back in 1999 that were dismissed. In 1999 my ex-wife, in an attempt to stop me seeing my children, and a few of her friends went to the Police with a story that later had me charged with 11 counts of (I think) aggravated sexual assault on a minor under 16 years. I fought the charges in court for about 7 months and they were eventually dismissed when one of the 'witnesses' changed their statement. According to the checking site, there is a list of offenses that lead to automatic disqualification to the working with children card, but I am not sure if this will apply to my circumstance. On the information of "what gets checked" it says (Disqualifying offences (Schedule 2)); "A detailed list of Schedule 2 offences is set out in the table below. A person convicted of (or awaiting trial for) any of these offences, committed as an adult, will be automatically barred. A Working With Children Check involves a full review of a person’s national criminal history, including convictions (whether spent or unspent), charges (whether heard, unheard or dismissed) and juvenile records." Besides another complaint in 1999 by my ex, accusing me of assaulting my daughter (again, more lies to try and stop me seeing my children) which I was questioned but was never charged for (I was able to provide proof it didn't happen). I have no other criminal record. Will I be disqualified from the working with children card? And is it possible to have these dismissed charges removed from my criminal history?
