Schedule One Offender

A Schedule One Offender is a term previously used to describe a person who has been convicted of an offence of violence or of a sexual nature. However, under Working Together to safeguard Children 2006, the term should no longer be used and the focus should be on whether the individual poses a 'risk of harm to children'. Interim guidance has been issued explaining how people who present a potential risk of harm to children should be identified.
