Chaperones

Original on Transparent.png

If the child will not be with their parent, school teacher or home tutor, they must be supervised by a chaperone approved by the council. Chaperones can apply for approval from their local council.

 

Any child under the age of 16 (or still in school) will need a chaperone for every audition and job.

 

A parent does not need a Chaperone License to chaperone their  own child.

 

If a parent is unable to attend a job the child will need a licensed chaperone in attendance and if that person is not a legal Gaurdian they will need a chaperone license. Please see further details below for anyone wanting to apply for a chaperone license.

Some jobs can provide a chaperone upon request. Your agent will also chaperone if available for a hourly fee. 

 

Applying for a Chaperone License

Contact your local Child Employment Office if you wish to chaperone children in either a professional or amateur capacity.  This applies to children requiring performance licences only.

In line with legislation & Department for Education guidance the Local Authority will only approve chaperones for children who require a performance licence. 

There is also no requirement for the LA to approve chaperones for productions that have been given a Body of Persons Approval (BOPA).

Chaperone applications will not be considered if children do not require a performance licence.

These are guidelines only. If you require more detailed information please contact The Child Employment Office, or refer to:

  • Children and Young Persons Act 1963, s.37

  • The Children (Performance and Activities)(England) Regulations 2014
