The Reading Doctor Guidance for Home Tuition during the Covid-19 Pandemic

Updated guidance 21.03.21

The Reading Doctor works in collaboration with The Tutor´s Association and follows their guidance, which is directly informed by Government guidance, on safer home tutoring practices during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Providers (including their staff where applicable) must always:

1) Minimise contact with individuals who are required to self-isolate by ensuring they do not attend your setting.

2) Ensure face coverings are used in recommended circumstances.

3) Ensure everyone is advised to clean their hands thoroughly and more often than usual.

4) Ensure good respiratory hygiene for everyone by promoting the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach.

5) Maintain enhanced cleaning, including cleaning frequently touched surfaces often, using standard products such as detergents.

6) Consider how to minimise contact across the site and maintain social distancing wherever possible.

7) Keep occupied spaces well ventilated.

In specific circumstances:

8) Ensure individuals wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) where necessary.

9) Promote and engage in asymptomatic testing, where available.

Providers (including their staff where applicable) must always:

10) Promote and engage with the NHS Test and Trace process.

11) Manage and report confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) amongst the setting community.
