I am ill and can’t make a session – what should I do? If you are ill you should email the pupil’s parent/carer to let them know. You must include your School Coordinator in this email and any other correspondence you have with a parent/carer. In your introductory meeting, the parent/carer will determine if they have specific demands for what to do in case of illness. Just as with normal assignments, tutors are not paid for sessions missed due to illness.
