Council Services:

Interim Home Tuition Service

Referrals are made to the service by the child/young person’s SEND caseworker if the young person has an EHCP or by Admissions if the young person has recently moved into Lincolnshire.

The Lincolnshire County Council SEND Interim Home Tuition Service provides education for children and young people from  the ages of 0-25 who:

  • have an EHCP (Educational Health and Care Plan) and have been permanently excluded (expelled) from a special school,
  • have an EHCP (Educational Health and Care Plan) and have been permanently excluded from a mainstream school, but SEND have determined that they need a special school place,
  • children/young people who are new to Lincolnshire (with or without an EHCP) and who do not have a school place.

Once the Home Tuition service has accepted the referral, the service business support officer will make an appointment for the practice supervisor to visit the home for an introductory meeting with the young person and parents/carers.  This meeting will take place within 2 working days and home tuition will begin within 2 days of this visit.  

During the visit the practice supervisor will:

  • explain the reason for your child’s referral to the service
  • discuss the tuition that will be delivered
  • provide the name of the tutor that will be delivering the tuition

All young people who receive education through the service are assessed and taught so that they are better equipped for success at their next educational setting. We also make sure that the children and young people are fully prepared for all examinations and provide invigilators when required.

Your Responsibility


As part of the young person’s education we may provide a laptop. This is to be used to complete the work provided by home tuition staff only.


We expect young people to be ready and at the agreed venue for tuition at the time agreed.  If your child is too ill for tuition please notify the service as soon as possible on 01522 52595 or 01522 553375.  Please do not arrange appointments at the time when tuition is due to take place; the home tuition service acts as a school and we set the same high standards for attendance.


We expect young people to behave as appropriately as possible with home tuition staff.  If there are any issues with high levels or serious incidents of challenging behaviour we would expect the tutor to:

  • end the session to ensure the safety of the young person and themselves,
  • speak to parents/carers and
  • notify the home tuition practice supervisor.

If the education is taking place somewhere other than the family home, the tutor will remain to supervise the child/ young person until the parent/carer arrives.

The practice supervisor will then call and arrange to visit to discuss the next steps for the child or young person’s education and the adjustments that we need to make for education to be successful.
