There is not a Body of Persons Approval in Northern Ireland at the present time (June 2017). It is in process at the moment but could take up to 18 months before this is in place. In the meantime Girlguiding Ulster have been advised that as long as you are not charging for performances (i.e parents/members of the public) you do not require permission. However if you were to charge for a performance you would need to contact your local Education Authority Office to clarify your position.
