For more information about the duties of Chaperones, please see our booklet "Guidance for Chaperones".
To apply for a chaperone licence you should contact our Pupil Welfare Service. An application pack will be sent to you with instructions on what you need to do to apply. If issued, our chaperone licences generally last for three years.
The application process usually takes two to three months from when you first apply. This is because of the time taken for enhanced CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) clearance to be obtained.
We would not normally issue a chaperone licence to anyone under 21 years of age. However, each case is examined individually so we would consider an application from someone below this age subject to interview.
If you just want to dress and look after your own child you will not need a chaperone licence. However, if you intend to look after other children in the performance or activity, you will need to get a chaperone licence.
You will be able to help a licensed chaperone as long as they are present to supervise the children at all times.
