Every year, private tutors help children catch up with missed work or address area they are struggling in, or with extra-curricular activities. Lockdown has led to major growth in this area, especially online, and this is expected to continue with further bubble and school closures.
A tutor might be employed by a school, the government National Tutoring Programme, or parents searching online or taking recommendations. But anyone can become a tutor, so what do you need to do so your children can learn and stay safe?
We have put together this poster to help parents and carers know what they can do, ask and check to keep their children safe against a background of rising online abuse during lockdown. Parents may have justified concerns and feel ill-equipped to check, but with a few simple steps, they can play an important role and have peace of mind.
