Anyone member of staff (and volunteers) who are working regularly within West Lothian schools are required to get a West Lothian Specific PVG.
We can get this processed for us via the Active Schools Team. Currently, as we are working in the Whitburn Cluster, this is Ben Boatman - firstname.lastname@example.org
Email Ben with the attached form to progress. You will also need to email Ben with copies of the ID ticked on the form. We have done this step after the person has received their Sustrans PVG.
In the past there has sometimes been a delay in getting the West Lothian PVGs processed which have caused delays in staff members (or volunteers) in getting into engage with schools. Matt Costello (Acting Manager Active Schools Team, West Lothian) has suggested that we speak directly with school headteachers and see if they are comfortable with volunteers/staff coming into schools with a Sustrans PVG, whilst the WL PVG is processed. This has been a good workaround.
