Government Restrictions for lockdown: home education

New government restrictions for the month-long lockdown have been released.


Out-of-school activities (including wraparound care) may continue to operate if their primary purpose is providing registered childcare, or where they are offering other childcare activities, where this is reasonably necessary to enable parents to:

  • work or search for work
  • undertake training or education


Further specific comment concerning home educators


Out-of-school activities that are primarily used by home educating parents as part of their arrangements for their child to receive a suitable full-time education (which could include, for example, tuition centres, supplementary schools, or private tutors) may also continue to operate for the duration of the national restrictions.


Please read all of the new guidance so that you can comply with the requirements.
