Is the use of enhanced checks always illegal?

I am the group HR manager for a leisure management company that recruits employees for leisure centres. In the normal course of their working day, they have access to all areas of the centres during opening hours, where there may be children and vulnerable people at any time.

For this reason, we pay for enhanced checks on all staff – including chairman and trustees – so that we can receive information should any of our staff offend in the future.

I would be interested in opinions as to whether this use of enhanced CRB checks is illegal.
