Early Years Leadership Framework
This is a resource for the early years workforce. The toolkit is designed to help you run your business more effectively and support you in developing good strategies for improvement, efficient practices and a well-supported business and staff team. It brings together examples and statutory information to help you run your business with the requirements set out by the Government and the local authority.
The Somerset SCITT website provides full details on our foundation degrees and our practical and highly-rated PGCE courses in primary teaching and early years which give you a Qualified Teacher Status.
Children who take part in public performances or entertainment under a licence issued by the local authority must be supervised by an approved chaperone – unless they are in the care of their parent or an agreed tutor.
The role of the chaperone is to protect the child’s health, safety and welfare while they are where the performance is taking place.
Approved chaperones are essential to make sure that proper provision is made to secure a child’s health, safety and welfare while they are where the performance is taking place. Chaperones are required to undergo an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check as part of the approval process. There is a cost of £44 for this check and this will be invoiced to paid chaperones.
