Circumstances where a licence will be required

TV or filming

For any period of time - regardless as to whether it is paid or unpaid and whether an absence from school is required.

A medical will also be required for any period of work (unless a medical has been provided in the last six months), except for periods of unpaid work of less than four days, with no absence from school, and when the child has not performed for six months.

Theatre, sporting activity or modelling

For any period of time - regardless as to whether it is paid or unpaid and whether an absence from school is required.

A medical is not normally required, but it is possible that one may be necessary for a performance lasting five days or longer.

When licenses are requested at short notice, local authorities will try to accommodate requests. However there must be enough time to deal with the application detail beforehand. Productions should not be mindful that the local authority can insist upon 21 days notice.

When sending details from one local authority to another - "the licensing authority must send to those authorities copies of the application form and the licence, together with any information they think should be brought to the notice of the other authorities" - Children (Performances)

Regulations (1968), Regulation 4.
