About a chaperone licence

Every child taking part in a licenced performance must be supervised by a parent, legal carer or guardian or a licenced chaperone.

Chaperones are responsible for:

  • the wellbeing of the children
  • safeguarding issues
  • considering health and safety issues
  • escorting the child at all times
  • following legislation relating to child performance.

All chaperones must:

  • be 18 years and older
  • complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) enhanced disclosure and social care background check
  • attend an up-to-date chaperone guidance session.
