Licensing of Children in Entertainment

It is against the law for a child to take part in performances for television, radio or film, or in sport or modelling work in circumstances where payment is made to the child or to someone on their behalf, unless they have a licence to do so. Licences permitting children to perform are not issued automatically and Islington Council does not usually support children's absences from school for performances unless there are clear educational benefits. Please contact the Pupil Services on 020 7527 3747 for further information.
