Child performance licences

Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.



The Sub Committee received a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services which updated  Members on the revised local policy and processes for performance licences for Children in the City of London.

Members noted that National Child Employment Guidance, which oversees the administration of child work permits, the issue of performance licences, Body of Persons Approvals (BOPAs) and chaperone licences, is available to all local authorities through the National Network for Children in Employment and Entertainment (NNCEE). In October 2019, the Safeguarding Sub-Committee was advised that, due to the increased number of applications received, the Education and Early Years’ Service would be reviewing its suite of policies and processes.


Members noted that the City is now fully compliant, being one of the only local authorities in the country with its own suite of local policies and procedures.


RESOLVED, that – the report be noted.
