The Scottish Government updated its guidance on organised activities for children again on 7 December, including the following statement:
"Private tuition would be able to take place in people’s homes, with relevant mitigations, in levels 0-3. Tutors should carry out their own appropriate risk assessments and should ensure appropriate hygiene measures, physical distancing and use of face coverings, are in place.
“This can include one-to-one tuition for non-wind instruments, or woodwind or brass instruments where extra precautions are taken to lower the risk, e.g. large room, well ventilated."
If face-to-face lessons take place in homes or private venues, teachers should ensure that risk assessments and Covid-secure measures are in place, and that they have read the Scottish government’s general advice for workplaces, its small and micro business guidance, its guidance for the performing arts sector and is guidance on organised activities for children.
Private teaching in level 4 areas should remain online.
