Details of outcome
We propose to lift unnecessary restrictions while keeping essential safeguards in place.
There should continue to be rules about when children can perform to safeguard their health well-being and education. However the current rules are complicated and restrictive and not always in the best interests of children.
We are seeking your views on the proposed new framework that establishes:
- the circumstances children can take part in performances according to their age
- the breaks they must have
- proposals to allow a local authority approved chaperone to have limited discretion to vary these rules if they think it is in the best interests of the child.
