However, home tuition is not a substitute for school attendance and will not normally be provided if a child has been excluded or has general attendance problems. Home tuition is only considered after a child has been absent for six weeks from school. During these first six weeks, the school is expected to provide work for the child to do at home. A pupil who is unable to attend school for medical reasons should not be removed from the school register without parental consent, even for long periods of ill health, unless the Designated Medical Officer has certified otherwise.


(1) Is my child entitled to home tuition?

Home tuition is provided in Brighton and Hove for children whose placement in school or tutorial unit is either inappropriate or impossible by reason of exceptional circumstances. These circumstances include pupils with medical reasons or illness, including mental health problems, which prevent them from attending school.

Pregnant school girls will be provided with home tuition for approximately half a term before the birth of the baby and up to half a term after. At the end of this period, it is hoped that the pupil will be ready to return to school on a full-time basis or on a reduced timetable. Support and advice from the Teenage Pregnancy Integration Officer will be provided.

This document does not provide information where parents choose to educate their children at home instead of school.

(7) How do we cancel tuition?

Education plans are reviewed at the end of each term and tutors submit written reports every half-term. A copy of this report will be sent to the school. Tuition may be withdrawn if a pupil fails to attend or make themselves available for tuition without valid reason.


Do we need to be present during tuition?

Tuition will not take place unless a responsible adult is in attendance. Parents are responsible for making arrangements for supervision. It is not necessary for the supervising adult to be in the same room as teacher and pupil, but it is necessary to be within calling distance. The supervising adult should not leave the home during a teaching session.
