Strict regulations apply to children working in the entertainment industry. These cover areas including maximum number pf performance hours per day/week, rest times, meal times and tutoring requirements. When any child under the age of 16 performs in a professional capacity, the Production Company must obtain a Child Performance Licence from the child's Local Education Authority. If you are a company you can download a Part One Application form below (this should be faxed back to the Agency once completed). If you are a parent you need to complete a Part Two form, plus obtain a Signed medical form from your GP (both can be downloaded below). You would need to rerturn these to the Agency with a copy of your child's birth certificate.
Child Artists must also be accompanied by a chaperone at all times when they are working. Registered chaperones are used instead of parents as they have a better understanding of the employment regulations involved and they have professional experience of dealing with production companies. Registered chaperones have been police checked and approved by their Local Education Authority.
Usually our chaperones are people whose children attended either the school or agency, teach or currently work for Jackie Palmer, therefore they have a total understanding of how the children may feel whilst working away from home.
Please click Current Chaperones for a list of our registered chaperones.
