Travel – Further update.

The Coronavirus (Covid 19) guidance on travel exemptions was updated to specifically reference Home Educators.

We are regularly updated by the HE lead at Scot Gov and Schoolhouse thanks and welcomes the recognition for HEs.

Please see below travel exemptions:


The regulations prohibit travel without a reasonable excuse into or out of a Level 3 or 4 local authority area, or to or from other parts of the Common Travel Area. The regulations list a range of different things for which travel is permitted. Guidance on those is set out below. But please remember that it is important for everyone’s safety that we all minimise such travel as much as possible.

  • travel for work or an activity associated with seeking employment, or to provide voluntary or charitable services, but only where that cannot be done from your home
  • travel to school (including travel to or from boarding school), college, or university (for example to or from home at the start or end of term)  This includes travel for home education, training, school day trips or for other essential purposes connected with a course of study
